Come to a Party at the Beach in Carlsbad – The State Beach Classic

The State Beach Classic


Party at the BeachThe 5th Annual State Beach Classic: A Tribute to Bannon Capps takes place in Carlsbad June 2 just south of the Village at Tamarack State Beach.


The State Beach Classic begins at 8 am and will run until 7 pm.


Who doesn’t love a terrific beach party?!


The State Beach Locals Surf Club was founded a number of years ago by some like-minded surfers as a way to enjoy the sport of surfing and protect the ocean.



After the death of one of the locals, Bannon Capps, the State Beach Classic was created by Ulises Thomas in his memory and the event has taken off.


Surfing in CarlsbadOver the last 5 years the State Beach Classic has become THE summer event for friends and families to gather on the beach for a great time and lots of surfing.


You can expect plenty of food, great music, raffle prizes, and contests, plus some pretty impressive surfing in multiple categories (e.g., Groms, Men, Women, Juniors, Masters, Grand Masters, and Long Board, plus a Pro Division).


No doubt you’ll see a wide age range of participants, and talent ranging from novice to professional.


Over the years the State Beach Classic has also attracted an impressive list of sponsors (e.g., Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club, Breakwater Brewing Company, Digital Solutions Marketing, and Knockout Pizza). The Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club, and Carlsbad High School’s Banning Capps Scholarship fund will benefit from the proceeds raised by this event.

Jeff we don't have an event like this around here, but I bet they would get a big turnout if we did.

You're right, Jeff... who doesn't love a good beach party? I can't remember the last time I was at the beach, much less a beach party.

Jeff, oh how I wish I were closer. I'd love to attend a party at the beach and really can't think of a better setting for a party. I hope you attend!

An all-day, city-wide beach party to honor one of your own -- what could be better??

Now that is my kind of party, looks like it will be a lot of fun!  I am itching to get back out to California, but I don't think that will happen this year.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - I was not part of AR  when I lived in SoCal or I would have been to many of these events and happenings. I am sure this will be lots of fun.

Hi Joe Pryor 

We had family in town over the weekend so we were not able to go. No doubt it was a fun time for those who attended and who participated in the surfing. Perhaps next year.
