Vissla is pleased to announce that Cosmic Creek is BACK for 2022!
After a two year haitus, we couldn't be more stoked to host the 24th Annual Cosmic Creek Surf Festival + Free Concert June 4-5th at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point. Join us for the community's favorite event paying homage to a more alternative, experiemental era of surfing's history. Free concert on Saturday evening featuring Widowspeak, TONER, and Vaguess with live music on the sand during the contest by The Electric Shrine.
The event will feature five divisions: Locals, Creators & Innovators, Pros, Womens, and a Body Surf Expression Session presented by DaFin. The Pros and Locals entrants will draw cards prior to their hetat for priority on the board selection. vissla will supply original 70's and 80's Single + Twin Fin options for competitors to choose from: meaning each heat is truly luck of the draw as to which board you will surf. The Creators & Innovators division consists of local shapers from all over California. While the Local & Pro divisions will ride original retro crafts, the Creators & Innovators Division will ride self shaped boards inspired by the 70's & 80's eras.
Local vendors will provide provisions at the event, including breakfast and lunch by The Schwack. Cosmic Creek will be a plastic-free event -- we ask that you bring reusable water bottles to refill at our water stations!
Cosmic Creek is open to the public and a true gathering of legends, groms, craftsmen, and storytellers. Over the years, Cosmic has become a soulful, grassroots, eclectic surf gathering; a celebration of heritage; a platform to exchange ideas about surfboards, music and art.
Sign ups for the contest will open Sunday, May 15th at Vissla.com/CosmicCreek
