21st Annual Dale Velzy Contest Draws Crowds to Doheny

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 1 October, 2010 : - - It was a beautiful sunny day as the Doheny Longboard Surfing Association ran its 21st annual Dale Velzy Classic at Doheny State Beach on September 25. The event boasted everything from classic longboarding, traditional paddle racing, stand-up paddle racing (SUP) and even a world class tandem surf contest. Surfers ranging in ages from eight to over 70 gave their all for the annual event.

A great crowd of supporters lined the beach as each round of competitors began their respective heats. Some of most incredible surfing of the day came from the young men’s and women’s age groups. They showed great style the 1- to 3-foot surf, really lighting up the crowd of onlookers.

Members of the Velzy family were in attendance and expressed their appreciation for this event, held each year in Dale’s honor. Polynesian dancers, a luau and a live band capped the fun-filled day. Proceeds from the event are used to support the Doheny Longboard Surfing Association and its many charities, including the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association, Ronald McDonald House and Surfing Heritage Foundation.
