29th Annual US Open Sandcastle Competition

This weekend, July 18 & 19, Surfrider will have an outreach booth at the US Open Sandcastle Competition in Imperial Beach. It’s our first time at this event and we’re very excited to promote all of our campaigns and especially the No B.S. campaign. The Sandcastle Competition includes a street festival with over 140 vendors offering musical entertainment, food and arts and crafts. The Kids-N-Kastles Competition is held on Saturday afternoon while the official US Open Competition is on Sunday with $21,000 in prize money.

We’re in need of volunteers to help man the booth for both days. Shifts are listed below but any time you can spend at the booth would be greatly appreciated. Please email me if you’re interested in helping out ( It should be a fun event and also a great chance to pick up one of the very cool No B.S. t-shirts. We’ll have a fresh batch on hand Saturday morning. Thank you and hope to see you this weekend!

Shifts for both Saturday and Sunday:
9:30am - 12:00pm
12:00pm - 2:30pm
2:30pm - 5:00pm
