The Doheny Longboard Surfing Associations (DLSA) annual Dale Velzy Surf Classic and Luau date has been selected. The club selects event dates based on twenty plus years of predicting the optimum swell and tide opportunities. This year’s classic venue will be held on Saturday, September 25th, 2010 at the legendary Boneyard section of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California.
Open to everyone who loves waves and good times, the event honors one of surfing’s most famous surfboard shapers of all time – Dale Velzy who passed away in 2005. This is a special program for the DLSA as the club has been holding this classic this venue for over two decades. By design, the Velzy is for all who enjoy the same things that Dale enjoyed, mostly having fun with friends and family. It is in that spirit that the DLSA holds this annual event so that everyone can enjoy everything from the surf contest, the luau, Polynesian review and dancing under the stars at Doheny with a live band.
“This 21st edition of the surf classic has a very special place in the hearts of all Doheny Longboard Members. Dale Velzy was a important person to all of us in the club and this program is our yearly tribute to one of the true pioneers of the sport” said Nyles Schafhauser, DLSA’s President.
This year’s event kicks off with the surf contest at 6:30 a.m. The Luau festivities begin at 3:00 p.m. followed closely by the Polynesian review, awards ceremony, raffles and then on to the dancing. It’s great fun for everyone.
