Salinas International Longboard Festival will host three different championships:
· National (Spanish) Longboard Championship – for the fifth time the Spanish Surf Federation chose Salinas to host the National Championship.
· International Longboard Championship – with the best longboard surfers in the world.
· Lightning Bolt Championship – only retro, single and twin fin surfboards.
The word “Festival” is the key because even though surfing competitions are held, the event offers all types of activities: live shaping, workshops, live performances, concerts, food trucks, talks, open-air cinema and more.
You can expect good surf, good music, great people and a lot of fun. Joins us!
