Join WILDCOAST on Saturday, September 19 for the 12th Annual Dempsey Holder Ocean Festival and Surf Contest, an amateur surf contest and festival honoring the memory of legendary waterman, big-wave surfing pioneer, and lifeguard Allen “Dempsey” Holder! Proceeds from the event support WILDCOAST’s efforts to protect our coast and ocean.
The Dempsey Holder Ocean Festival represents the local heritage of surf lifestyle and coastal stewardship in Imperial Beach and stretching down the Pacific coast to Baja California. The contest features the next generation of surfers competing today.
DONATE to the Dempsey Scholarship Fund to help us sponsor local children who wish to compete in the Dempsey free of charge!
WILDCOAST will host the traditional amateur surf contest, the second part of the Baja Bound Surf Series, beginning at 7am on the north side of the Imperial Beach Pier. When they’re not surfing or watching the action, contest attendees can enjoy great food and music from the Blues and BBQ festival on the Imperial Beach Pier Plaza, thanks to collaboration with the Imperial Beach Chamber of Commerce!
