Watching people try to ride switch stance is really funny - and when it’s for a good cause it’s okay to laugh. And this past Sunday an estimated 8,000 people flocked to Moonlight Beach to do just that at the 7th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am. Click through to the extended story for a full recap and photos.

The Hurley “A” Team, comprised of Dane Zaun, Brad Ettinger, Jake Marshall, Eli Viszolay, took home first place (the Hurley “B” Team would like to thank you for making up for their shortcomings) while Hurley H2O sold 1,000 reusable water bottles, significantly reducing plastic waste onsite as noted by event organizers. A board demo gave kids the chance to test out Hurley/Stacey boards all day long, resulting in a chorus of, “where can I buy one of these?” Live music lingered above the beach crowd all day, but it was the main attraction, Switchfoot that drew the biggest and most excited crowd. Proceeds benefited local chapters of Stand Up For Kids, an organization helping homeless youth.
