The UCSB Surf Team is an official UCSB Club Sport for experienced competitive surfers. There are spots for men's short board, women's short board, and co-ed long board.
Our competition season spans the entire year, with four regular season events, states, and nationals. They are organized by the NSSA, the National Scholastic Surfing Association. For each competition we send three complete teams (9 surfers each) to locations in San Diego, Orange County and Ventura.
Join the Team!
Every fall during Week of Welcome, we have a table at the Fun & Fitness Festival, located at the UCSB Recreation Center. Students can sign up for tryouts and talk to members of the team here. Anyone interested in joining can sign up or ask us questions then, though it is not a requirement!
Tryouts will be held on October 2, 2016 at the beach down from Camino Pescadero in Isla Vista. We will set up mock heats early in the morning, similar to the set-up of a typical competition. Bring your own wetsuit and a board! We are a competitive team, but encourage all to try out. If you’re looking for a more relaxed atmosphere, many of our members are also active in the school’s surf club!
If you enjoy competing and are looking for a fun group of like-minded surfers, contact Lulu or Riley! We look forward to seeing you at tryouts!
