Echo Beach is both a place and a feeling. An era in the 80’s where flashy wetsuits, colorful surfboards, and mammoth sized logos became the standard. Located in Orange County, CA between 52nd and 56th street Newport Beach, Echo Beach is a sliver of land that helped innovate the iconic times of the 80’s. This film takes you back to the Newport Beach crew of surfers, who dominated the magazines. All at once, surfing good and more importantly, looking good on a one foot wave in your own backyard in the height of summer became almost more important than going huge in Hawaii in the winter. No single place defined this era quite like ‘Echo Beach’, where Surfing magazines and photographers all came to capture both the vibe in the water and on the beach that helped shaped one of the most iconic periods of surfing. 

Doors Open 6pm – 9pm. Live Music from Will Heard. Free Tacos & Drinks!!

Outside Venue / All Ages / Free of Charge / Open to the Public

Morning coffee bar with locals Crank and Grind will start brewing at 8am, and they will serve up tasty Sambazon bowls throughout the day. Fellow collectors club Surfboards & Coffee will collaborate with VSCC for the first time ever at this meet! Music from The West Coast Cookers starts at 10am, kicking your eyes even more open than a Crank & Grind espresso and playing sets all afternoon. Gary Larson, master shaper at Hobie Surfboards, will be live shaping a classic Hobie model at high noon. Representatives from community organizations such as, The Surfing Heritage & Culture Center, Surfers Healing, Surfrider, and The Ocean Institute will have information tents set up, spreading the word on who they are and how to get more engaged with what they do.

In short, HUNDREDS of bitchen boards strewn about the grass, coffee, bowls, live music, hand shaping, Best in Show, community organizations, and local surf legends, all with a Hobie flavor added in. What’s not to like?? This event is rain or shine, all ages welcome and open to the public. Don’t miss out!! See you Sunday February 25th!!
