Surrounded by bodyboarding legends – both virtual and IRL – we took part in the YouRiding Games video game tournament this past weekend at eBodyboarding.com’s headquarters in San Clemente. After a heated competition, Bodyboarding Adventures instructors, Iran Cortes and Taylor Scott, took home the top 2 prizes which included a Science bodyboard and an eBodyboarding changing mat.
If you want to check out the action, here’s the unedited live stream of the event, moderated by former pro, Jay Reale, and YouRiding Games’ Manny Vargas. Visit YouRiding Games on Facebook for gear, upcoming events and more!
One thing that we’re really passionate about at Bodyboarding Adventures is teaching our students about the ocean and our beach environment. That’s why we’ve partnered with the San Clemente Beach Conservation Program, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to preserving our local beaches, to help develop a curriculum for our summer camp that’s focused on respect for the ocean, our beach ecosystem and sustainability.
We recently participated in one of their Beach Clean Up days, which take place every 3rd Saturday of the month at various beaches near San Clemente. It was such a fun time and we met some awesome people – our little guy even found an orca tooth on the beach (which, of course, we left behind in it’s rightful home)! Check out their site for more information, upcoming events and to donate to this worthwhile cause.
