The final day of the Cosmic Creek 2015 Surf Festival at Salt Creek Beach is today, Sunday May 31 2015

Salt Creek Beach is located at 33333 South Coast Highway in Dana Point.

This is a 1970’s retro-style experience paying homage to an earlier era in surf.

Cosmic Creek is open to the public.

Cosmic Creek is a true gathering of legends, groms, craftsmen and storytellers.

Cosmic has become a soulful grassroots eclectic surf gathering, a celebration of heritage and platform to swap ideas about surfboards, music and art.

Event Hours:

Sunday: 8:00am to 2:00pm

The event will feature three divisions including Locals, Creators, Innovators and Pros.

The Pros and local entrants will meet at the waters edge with Beach Marshal Ralphie and “draw cards” prior to their heat for priority on the board selection.

It truly comes down to the luck of the draw as to which board you will surf in your heat as Vissla will supply original 60’s and 70’s Single and Twin fin options for competitors to choose from.

The Creators and Innovators division consists of local shapers from San Clemente to Laguna Beach including Gary Larson of Hobie Surfboards, Dave/Dan Bohne of Infinity Surfboards, Donald Brink, and Ryan Engle to name just a few.

While the local entrants and Pros will ride original craft, the Creators & Innovators will ride a craft they shaped themselves inspired by the 60’s and 70’s time period.

There will also be a Creators and Innovators tent where you can demo boards from Danny Hess, Haydenshapes, Donald Brink and Jeff McCallum. In addition, Grain Surfboards will be onsite conducting hand plane workshops where you can create your own custom handplane right on the beach.

Local vendors will provide provisions at the event, from breakfast and lunch by Shwack to morning caffeine by Seaworth Coffee.
