OCEANSIDE, CA – By combining a passion for surfing with an appreciation for the community, Surf Ride Boardshop created Demofest. The Surf Ride Demofest gives the local surf community an opportunity to try the latest surfboards, wetsuits, and surf accessories on Saturday, May 5th at Seaside Reef in Cardiff, California.

Featuring surfboards, wetsuits, stand-up paddle boards and other surf accessories from the top companies in the industry, this free community event appeals to surfers all over San Diego. Top brands that are sold in both Surf Ride stores will be there with their demo fleet of all the latest products that anyone can try for free, just bring an ID as collateral.

Demofest 'Cinco de Tryo' is hosted at one of the best breaks in Southern California, Seaside Reef, where the waves are always ripable, pro surfers are regularly seen paddling out, and parking is plentiful—all of this should make for an epic event. Cross your fingers for a swell and if the weather cooperates, we can expect a summer-like day perfect for surfing.

John Ennis, surfboard buyer and store manager at Surf Ride, explains "we are hosting Demofest as a way to show people that we believe in the products that we carry so much that we want customers to try it before they buy it." He adds, "There are so many community surf events where our everyday customers are just spectators. Demofest gives surfers not only a chance to see all the latest products, but to actually get out and surf with them."

Preceded by a handful of successful demo events hosted by Surf Ride along with the brands' participation, Demofest is set to create a considerable demand for future demo events among the southern California surfing community as well as in other related industries.

With so much to offer, the Surf Ride Demofest guarantees a great experience.
