The Ventura Surf Club makes annual donations to local groups that meet their club credo; “To preserve, promote and perpetuate the values, beliefs and essence of surfing”. The donations are funded primarily from the annual California Street Classic surf contest, which runs in conjunction with the Aloha Beach Festival in Ventura every September.
This year’s donations are the highest amount in the history of the surf club. “I am proud to be the president of a club that shows so much aloha. The hard work of our members make these donations possible. It’s great to give back to the community” said Andy Sassen, surf club president.
This year’s recipients include The Boys and Girls Club surf program, Junior Lifeguards Scholarship fund, Best Day Foundation, Stream-keeper, Ventura Scholastic surf team. The Ventura Surf Club is open to surfers of all skill levels and welcomes families. For more information, visit www.venturasurfclub.org.
