Surf Rodeo Music and Surf Festival

Ventura, CA 93001


The Surf Rodeo team strives to bring you a creative, interactive, relaxed event where fun always comes first. If our tasty vendor treats and our wild bucking bull on the beach don’t catch your eye, our nationally recognized musical lineup and quirky contest divisions are sure to lasso you in. From the crazy kids corral to the belly’s full of beer in our designated gardens, we’re confident there is something for each member of the family to enjoy.

The Surf Rodeo spirit is something quite genuine and can only be captured first hand. So ladies and gentlemen, please don’t drag your spurs. Come down to Pierpont Beach for a weekend of salty skin and sandy toes and experience what we are truly about.

Surf Rodeo started as a passion project for Ventura entrepreneur, John Drury, lovingly known as JD to most of the Ventura community. Drury’s mission for Surf Rodeo was to bring the highly competitive, cut-throat, serious atmosphere of today’s surf competitions back to its relaxed roots, where fun always comes first. 

"We try and remind ourselves we are all out for the same thing, to just have fun,” said John Drury, founder of Surf Rodeo. “Let's laugh at ourselves a little and bring us together through music and surfing.”
