Decades-old Surf Festival this weekend
Since the mid-1960s, when the Beach Boys were topping the charts with songs about SoCal surfing, the cities of Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo Beach teamed up to present the International Surf Festival, a weekend of good vibrations with competitions in just about every possible beach activity. Surfing and life guarding top the list, with some of the country's most skilled surfers catching South Bay waves, but people can also compete in swimming, volleyball, running and even sand-castle-building events. Most events have categories to accommodate a range of ages and skill levels.
The event is going on all weekend long, and it's free to watch. So come check out this big beach spectacle or come be part of the mess. It's sure to be hot this weekend, and worth the trip to the coast regardless.
