Seaside Fiesta Surf Contest

OUR 2017 SEASIDE CONTEST WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!

The contest is an annual event and coincides with the New Smyrna Beach Seaside Fiesta. The “Fiesta” is a street party held on Flagler Ave. the third Thursday of June. Ten’s of thousands celebrate the summer season with food, drink, games and music The club has a booth where we sell t-shirts, raffle tickets and anything else not nailed down. The raffle tickets are for a new custom made surfboard ($600 value) as well as other fine prizes. It’s a family event for kids, old and new, and a good hoot, too! Both our Seaside Fiesta and our Spooktacular contests are amateur events. Entry fees are $15 for event registration and  $15 for each division entered. Tadpoles are just $15 entry fee. All competitors get a free contest t-shirt and top finishers receive hand made wooden trophies (Club members make these trophies with their little old hands). Our contests are truly family oriented events and a heck of a lot fun.

Please click here for online registration or register at onsite starting at 8:00 AM.

Tadpoles please register onsite.

The club would like to thank all of our sponsors for making all of our events possible. Please visit our sponsor page.

Our Platinum Sponsor for this year’s Seaside Fiesta contest is St. Peter The Fisherman Episcopal Church located at 4220 Saxon Drive, New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

The Smyrna Surfari Club dedicates our 2017 Seaside Fiesta Contest to the memory of Hal Spence.  Hal was a fellow Surfarian and Sponsor of all of our contests. He lived his life to the fullest as an adventurist, respected attorney, and father of Kaley.  Hal was a friend to all and left us too soon…

A celebration of life for Hal will be on July 1st at 4:00 p.m. at Skydive DeLand with an ash jump at 4:30 followed by music, food and beverages in a casual indoor/outdoor event
