Winter Competition: Ventura Bodysurfing Classic 2019: December 7th & 8th

The Ventura Bodysurfing Classic is the flagship event for the South Jetty Swells Bodysurfing Association.

This event is held at the south jetty of the Ventura Harbor in early December. The Ventura Bodysurfing Classic will be the final event of the California Bodysurf Tour. The event is well known for providing powerful north west winter swells and cold water.

The contest has 3 Division as follows:
Men's Open
Grommets under 18 boys & girls
Women's Open

WE WERE STOKED TO CATCH UP WITH SLYDE BRAND AMBASSADOR  JOSH BALL TO GET THE INSIDE TRACK ON BODYSURFING IN VENTURA.

HOW WOULD YOU BEST DESCRIBE THE BREAK WHERE THE CONTEST IS TAKING PLACE?

Sandy bottom beach right next to the Ventura harbor. With two jetties on either side of the beach, shoulders come from the right and left depending on the swell. Sandbars on the outside make for fun long rides and on the inside, you can find hollow shore breaks.

ANY TIPS YOU WOULD GIVE TO SOMEONE COMPETING IN THE CONTEST FOR THE 1ST TIME?

Be prepared for anything! Depending on the day the winter swell can bring sloppy monster waves that wall up, lake-like conditions, or perfect glassy shoulders…you never know.
