Surf Legend Shaun Tomson will attend this year’s Surf Nite in SLO

We’re very excited to announce that South African surfing legend Shaun Tomson will join in on the fun at Surf Nite on Friday, March 15 at the Fremont Theatre in downtown San Luis Obispo.

Shaun Tomson is a World Surfing Champion, and has been described as one of the greatest surfers of all time (Surfing Magazine 2004), and one of the most influential surfers of the century (Surfer Magazine 1999). He was an inductee in the Jewish and South African Sports Hall of Fame and the US Surfing Hall of Fame. He is a board member and ambassador for Surfrider Foundation, the world’s largest environmental group dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans, waves and beaches and he received the SIMA Environmentalist of the Year Award in 2002.

Tomson started, managed and sold two multi-million dollar clothing brands – Instinct in the 80’s and Solitude (co-founded with his wife Carla) in the 90’s. He is the author of the best-selling book “Surfer’s Code“, and the writer and producer of the award-winning documentary film “Bustin’ Down the Door.”

All event details can be found here. Surf Nite typically sells out so don’t wait to purchase your tickets! We pre-sell a limited number and then sell rush tickets at the event after all Full Access pass holders have been admitted. You snooze, you might lose!

Surf Nite fan Stan Gitler is looking forward to another Surf Nite and in honor of his favorite event, he shared this inspired photo of a portion of his incredible train layout. Thanks Stan!!

See you at Surf Nite!
