Join us for our second annual Gala Extravaganza Spring Into a Surfrider Summer! The event features 6 courses artfully created by Black Market Gourmet, paired with 4 beers from Southern Oregon Coast microbreweries, rum from Charleston’s Stillwagon Distillery, and coffee from North Bend’s Bridgeview Coffee Roasters, plus live entertainment, and a Wall of Beer. This event raises money to support our Scholarship program, our Youth Chapter, and coastal water sampling.
Come learn about local surfing history and surfing design with one of the original surfers of the Oregon Coast. Guest speaker Dan Matthews will share his history of surfing in our area, and his nearly 50 years of surfboard shaping experience. Our February meeting will be held at our usual place, at the Broadway Rock Hall-next to Sharkbites Café, Thursday, February 4, at 6 pm.
Bastendorff is a special place for our Surfrider chapter, it’s the place we all go to take our dogs to run free, surf (every now and then it’s good), camp and connect with the ocean. Keeping it clean was the inspirational action that led to the development of our chapter and continues to be a focal point today. Bastendorff is unique in that it is one of the few easily accessible spots in Oregon where you can camp for free on the beach – a feature that, while in the spirit of Oregon, comes with a series of challenges.
