South Bay’s Largest Surf Festival to Honor Surf Industry, Local Businesses and Most influential Names of the Past and Present

Spyder Surf Fest will once again bring together the surf industry’s most prominent brands and surfers to Hermosa Beach on April 5 for a seventh consecutive year. The day will kick off the day with the “Surfers Walk of Fame” induction ceremony at 11:30 a.m. followed by a day of live music, fashion shows, interactive booths, giveaways and new to this year’s Surf Fest line-up – the LA Surf Awards, which will be presented at 3 p.m. at Hermosa Pier Plaza. The Awards will recognize four of the most influential standouts for their accomplishments and contributions to surf history, including Palos Verdes’ pro and “Standout Surfer of the Year” surfer Alex Gray, legendary surf photographer Mike Balzer, short board and longboard champion Ted Robinson who will be honored with the coveted “California ICON” award and Bob Hurley who will accept Hurley’s achievement for “Breakout Brand of the Year.”

“Hermosa Beach is a little rural beach community but it is truly ground zero of surf culture,” said Dennis Jarvis, founder, Spyder Surf Shops. “The South Bay breeds some of the most accomplished surfers and talent the industry has ever known, and it only makes sense to honor and unite those who have played an integral role at Surf Fest. We celebrate and honor the legends of the past and present and intend to continue working with the most influential action sport companies for many years to come.”

The City of Hermosa Beach will commemorate the surf heritage of the South Bay with the induction of two legendary South Bay surfers, John McFarlane and Sparky Hudson to Hermosa Pier’s acclaimed “Surfers Walk of Fame.” The newest additions of bronze plaques will become permanent fixtures alongside fellow greats Greg Noll, Dewey Weber, Hap Jacobs, Dale Velzy and many others.

Following the induction ceremony until approximately 7 p.m., Pier Plaza will feature industry booths and musical acts, including 70’s Amateur World Champion Mark Levy’s band “THE BIXBY DICKS,” Fallen Riviera, HOIST the COLORS as well as local favorites Kevin Sousa and Sand Section.

Participating brands of the seventh annual Spyder Surf Fest include presenting sponsor Monster Energy, Sanuk, SUN BUM, Hurley, Billabong, Quiksilver, Volcom, Electric, Rip Curl, Roxy, Toms and many more.

After 7 p.m., festivities will continue into the evening at the official Surf Fest Post Party at Watermans. VIP wristbands will be issued during the day at the restaurant for express entry and food and beverage discounts.
