Take part in WILDCOAST's 14th Annual Dempsey Holder Ocean Festival and Surf Contest, one of the largest and longest running surf contests in San Diego County. WILDCOAST hosts this annual event to honor the memory of legendary waterman, big-wave surfing pioneer, and lifeguard, Allen "Dempsey" Holder.

The Dempsey serves as an important community-based opportunity to educate and engage a broad audience on issues affecting San Diego County’s coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife. Proceeds from the festival help support WILDCOAST's efforts to conserve our coast and ocean.
 

To register for this year’s Dempsey Holder Surf Contest please fill out our ONLINE FORM!

Don’t surf? You can still participate by making a donation to the Dempsey Scholarship Fund! The fund provides local underserved youth the opportunity to compete in the contest at no cost, removing financial barriers for an inclusive opportunity for all. Past support has allowed for hundreds of local youth to participate in this much sought after surf contest.
