Creek to Bay Day September 21, 2019
Join us as we show our love for the ocean right here in Oakland!! On Creek to Bay day each year, Brown Girl Surf cleans up the Oakland estuary, on a special waterborne cleanup crew. California Canoe and Kayak Company in Jack London square has partnered with us and is providing kayaks to members of the Brown Girl Surf community for our clean up effort.
Meet at 8:30 am in front of California Canoe and Kayak shop in Jack London Square for registration and to get situated in your kayak. We'll be getting out on the water around 9am, so make sure to show up on time.
PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO INCREASED DEMAND, we have a limited amount of free kayak rentals for Brown Girl Surf community members and 1 guest. If you are able to pay for a rental ($20-25), please reserve a Brown Girl Surf community rent-on-site ticket. Which will allow you to reserve a boat, and then you can pay for the rental directly from California Canoe and Kayak, on the day of the event.
All participants will be required to sign a waiver on site before participating in the event. All participants under 18 will be required to have a parent/guardian sign for them. Participants will not be able to kayak without the signed waiver.
Surf Sister Saturdays Fall 2019!
On Saturdays in the Spring and Fall, our community gets together to connect with the ocean and surf. We welcome you to join us!
Brown Girl Surf provides all the equipment, and no experience is necessary as participants are welcomed into our ocean-loving community. For beginners, we introduce you gently to all elements of surfing, from wetsuits, to board safety, to learning how to be in the ocean. Those who have surfed before can continue to work on their skills and enjoy the great community vibe. If transportation is an issue, we can help you carpool from Oakland to Half Moon Bay. All sessions are open to female-identified and nonbinary folks ages 9 - 99. This fall one session (Oct 5) is reserved for those who are new to surfing and who have not yet surfed with Brown Girl Surf, and one session (Nov 2) is reserved for those who have surfed with us before, to continue working on skills.
The cost to us as an organization for running these programs is $100 per individual per session. We ask that those who can pay this amount do. We are committed to making surfing accessible to everyone so sliding scale pricing is also available. Payment is due at the time of registration.
Please register by clicking on the dates below that you wish to attend.
Please note that Oct. 5 is only open to those who are new to surfing and have not surfed with Brown Girl Surf before, and Nov 2 is only open to those who HAVE surfed with us before and are interested in developing their skills.
