Surf's Up With The Resorts of Dana Point During the Second Annual Doheny Surf Festival June 29 and 30

DANA POINT, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2013) - With the help of The Resorts of Dana Point, a free signature surf weekend will kick-off June 29 and 30 at Doheny State Beach beginning at 9 a.m. both days. The second annual Doheny Surf Festival presented by Subaru will include all things surf -- from tandem surfing and legends longboard competitions, to nose riding exhibitions and historical surfing exhibits.

"We are looking to deliver an authentic surfing experience with approachable, family-driven activities and access to the legends of surfing that no other competition setting can provide," said Norm Kahn, CEO for Utopia Entertainment Inc, the event's producer.

With kids' activities, pro-surfer autograph opportunities, author's book signings, environmental education, vendors, music, as well as a convoy of Orange County food trucks, this event is open to the public and a great option for family fun.

"Dana Point has been a cornerstone of Southern California surf culture for decades," said Jim Samuels, General Manager of the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa. "The Doheny Surf Festival pays homage to that storied history and uses the legends of surfing's past to inspire the youth of today. It's a wonderfully unique event and one that we hope continues to grow in Dana Point."

The Resorts of Dana Point include The Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel, St Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Laguna Cliffs Marriott and Spa and Double Tree Guest Suites by Hilton Doheny Beach - Dana Point, and are focused on increasing tourism to the destination through various marketing initiatives and event development.

One of the most compelling components of this event that has helped in attracting such high-value official sponsors -- Hobie Surfboards, City of Dana Point, Kona Brewing Company, Verizon and California State Parks -- is the environmental and charitable emphasis. 

Generous proceeds will go to the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association, the non-profit cooperating association of Doheny State Beach, dedicated to the protection of the park's beaches, facilities, marine refuge and its historical, cultural and social stories.
