Our Endless Summer Sailboard Classic is scheduled for October 7th-9th, 2022. In order to help make this year’s event a success we are currently looking for sponsors, donations of cash, in kind services or goods for the swag bag or raffles.
We our asking all of our Shell Point Sailboard Club members to please consider helping make our club’s event a huge success by contacting your favorite businesses in town that you patronize on a regular basis for donations (see attached sponsorship opportunities available).
We are a not-for-profit recreational organization that is completely run by volunteers which is pretty impressive when you see that this event is now in its 35th year!
For those that have previously donated we thank you and humbly ask if you would please consider becoming a sponsor once again.
We appreciate your support in helping our club continue to carry on this wonderful event.

About our Endless Summer Event . . .
The Endless Summer Sailboard Classic, held in the fall, is a don't miss for the serious racer. The event generally begins with a welcome party on the beach, with hot buffalo wings served up in the evening, washed down with cold beverages. Camping and motel rooms are available but reservations for both are recommended. On-site registration is Saturday morning, which includes customized t-shirts by Homestead Handcrafts, course and long distance racing, trophies 3-deep, and dinner and entertainment Saturday night. The SPSC sponsorship committee ensures that everyone goes home with great door prizes, generously donated by windsurfing retailers and manufacturers.
Our idea came from "The Endless Summer", a seminal surf movie released in 1966, after a limited showing in 1964.
They call it The Endless Summer the ultimate surfing adventure, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. From the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the shark-filled seas of Australia, to the tropical paradise of Tahiti and beyond, these California surfers accomplish in a few months what most people never do in a lifetime...They live their dream. Director Bruce Brown creates a film so powerful it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation. When it first played in theaters, audiences lined up to see it again and again, spellbound by its thrilling excitement and awesome photography. But in fact, what's most compelling about the film is the sport of surfing itself, and once you've seen it, you'll never forget why.
