22nd Annual Encinitas Lions Club Blind Surfing Event: Sunday, September 10, 2017 The Encinitas Lions Club Blind Surfing Event is the Encinitas Lions Club signature cause during the year. It is held in partnership with Urban Surf. Volunteers from the club as well as many sponsors from the community come together to put on a day of surfing for the blind and the sight-impaired. Surfers are provided wet suits, surfboards and instruction, in the water by Certified Surfing Instructors as they challenge themselves to balance atop surfboards. Breakfast and a BBQ lunch for all our guests will be included, weather you surf or come to enjoy a day at the beach. Of course there will be no charge and no age limit. The event takes place each year at South Ponto State Beach – just north of La Costa Blvd and Highway 101. Special thanks to all of the volunteers that make event a special day!
