The UCSD 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 for the 2016-2017 selections will be held on October 1st, 2016 at 7:00 AM sharp.
The meeting spot is at the bottom of Black Gold Road (long curving paved road that leads to Blacks Beach).
Bring everything you need to surf with as well as some food/water as it will be several hours.
