What might you be doing on the weekend of March 15-16? We’d suggest you go surfing. Or you could pack up the tent and go camping. Or maybe — just maybe — you should try something new. Why not do all three and head to Camp Shred?

SURFING Magazine and Surf Ride have teamed up to bring Camp Shred, the world’s largest surf demo, back to the good old San Elijo Campground in Cardiff By the Sea, California. The event, now in its second year, unites the best surf brands and thousands of their loyal consumers for a fun weekend of camping, surfing and demoing the latest greatest gear, all while giving back to California State Parks.

Wetsuits, surfboards and other surf gear can put a dent in your wallet, so why not try before you buy? The list of surf brands whom will be sharing their newest shapes, designs and products includes: Billabong, Boardworks, Body Glove, Clif Bar, Everyday Surfboards, FCS, Futures Fins, Firewire Surfboards, JS Surfboards, Lost, O’Neill, Panda Surfboards, Rip Curl, Robert August Surfboards, Rusty, Sector 9, Surftech Surfboards, Vampirate and more!

But the fun doesn’t stop with the free demo opportunities. The festival-like campground will also feature music and entertainment, food trucks and the ever-bubbly beer garden.

The free and open to the public event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Proceeds from sponsor-filled goody bag sales and Subaru test drives will benefit California State Parks.
