Join us on November 10th at Crystal Pier for the 3rd Annual Jesus Fish Festival!

The Jesus Fish Fest is a stoke-filled, outside-the-box, community surf contest in which all competitors will surf on an identical, custom shaped Hank Warner Fish during the contest and then be entered into a lucky draw to win one of the boards after the competition.

There will be  Grom, Open Men, Open Women (all ages), and masters divisions. Each heat will be four-man format with each surfer riding an identical 5'7" fish that matches their jersey color. This will even the playing field as every surfer in the event will be riding the same fish that they have never ridden before.

The 8 Fishes are sponsored by local churches and organizations in the San Diego area and each board corresponds with one of four Gospels that tell about Jesus life: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Following the contest there will be a prize-giving at the beach when the lucky draw will happen and every competitor, whether you win your division or lose your first heat, will have a 14% chance (8 fishes / 112 competitors) of winning a one of the Fishes.
