Surf Classic Highlights

The Cardiff Surf Classic and Green Beach Fair will take place at Seaside Beach, at the south end of Cardiff State Beach. Seaside is a popular surf spot, because of its reef. The two-day event features a surfing contest and environmental fair. Surfers of all ages will have a chance to compete.

The event’s main goal is to promote environmental awareness. At the Green Beach Fair, several organizations will exhibit products and services, which promote a sustainable lifestyle, in the areas of transportation, architecture, energy, conservation, building materials, eco-friendly products, reuse and recycling, and food and agriculture. In addition, musicians will perform live on a solar-powered stage.

As in years past, attendees will enjoy lots of entertainment, including Dr. Zoolittle, Saturday at 12 & 2 kids activities and delicious food vendors throughout the weekend.

Tide Pool

If the tide is low enough, attendees can explore the Cardiff State Beach Tide Pools, located by the bluffs at the south end of the parking. The rocks at Cardiff State Beach Tide Pools are interesting sedimentary rocks about 45 million years old that contain fossil clams firmly embedded within.

Several restaurants are located in nearby Solana Beach, just south of the event, as well as Cardiff. Several restaurants, known as Restaurant Row, is clustered along Coast Hwy 101, a short distance north of Seaside Beach. The two beach towns also have a wide assortment of shops and boutiques.
