The UC San Diego Surf Team competes against colleges across the entire California coast in the NSSA college league. We have numerous contests during the year and end our season with Western Championships at Church’s Beach and Nationals at Salt Creek. The team practices at Blacks’ Beach where we simulate the contest experience and practice judging contests so as to understand the sport further. This year, we will be competing in a special series where the competition is in “game” format and all the Southern California colleges will be competing for the trophy. Surf Team offers a community of friends that like to surf and share similar life interests. Come help the team win by trying out and competing or by cheering us on at the San Diego competitions! SURF TEAM TRYOUTS Hello all! Tryouts for the UC San Diego Surf Team are on Saturday, October 7th at 7:00 AM at the bottom of Blacks Gold Road (gated paved road down to Blacks’ Beach on the south end). We will be running a mock competition with colored jerseys and judges as the tryout. We also will use the first practice the following week to decide the roster for the first competition in order to provide more chances for you to show us your surfing ability. Make sure to bring everything you will need to surf, along with enough food and water for the duration of the tryout as we expect it to run for several hours. Please contact us with any questions and see you all bright and early on Saturday, October 7th at 7:00 AM at Blacks' Beach!
