The 23rd Annual Venice Surf-A-Thon Results and recap
The 23rd Annual Venice Surf-A-Thon Surf
Contest held at the Venice Pier in 2-3ft glassy conditions on Dec 10th 2016. The contest sponsored 19 surfers and 41 men, women and children competed in the contest 975.00 dollars were donated to MLD Christian Charity School Mindanao. Everybody had a great time in the friendly low key but competitive contest. Many new participants and families attended as well as the crusty old barnacles who never fail to make it down to Venice and help out in one way our another. Local legend Joe Shmo called in from a very secure location and the live link up was broadcast via P.A to the crowd on the beach and pier.
The 23rd Annual Venice Surf-A-Thon Award Show featured Mitchell Schaffer, DJ Jacques and Frontside Grind performing live. The raffle was again a crowd pleaser as well as the pizza and product tosses. Thank you one and all for helping make the event a success 23 years in a row!
