There are two nude events in July 2010 worth your time.
Skinny Dipping at Haulover Beach in 2009
The first is the AANR Guinness Book of World Records Skinny Dip on July 10. The goal is to give people an excuse to go skinny dipping at a beach, resort, lake, river or club. It’s healthy. It’s natural. It’s fun. It’s simple. Go to a participating location. Remove your clothes. Jump in the water. Smile. And you get to be a part of history by helping set a world record.
The AANR (American Association of Nude Recreation) website has details on where you can participate. If you’re going to be in south Florida, join us at Haulover Beach. One of the best clothing optional beaches in the USA. We’ll be working with the people from South Florida Free Beaches to create a video of the event which can be ordered through South Florida Free Beaches.
Black\’s Beach Nude Surf Contest
The other is the nude surf event at Black’s Beach in San Diego on July 25, 2010. Waves may not be big, but it’s a summer day on a beautiful beach with thousands of naked people. Despite being the nation’s largest, and possibly most liberal state – California has very few nude beaches. Activists with too much time and too little respect for other people’s personal choices have worked hard to shut down San Onofre for nude use. Whether you’re an active nudist, have tried it a few times, or just believe that people should be free to pursue personal choices if they don’t harm others – come soak up some sunshine, get in the ocean and try surfing, boogie boarding or body surfing.
There’s great prizes including a free weekend at Glen Eden Sun Club including resort passes and accommodations, and lots of other great stuff. The Blacks Beach Bares arrange a bbq, beach toys, umbrellas and other amenities to make it a great event.
Nude recreation should be simple. Practiced by those who enjoy it, in areas where others won’t be confronted or offended. Show your support and join one of the upcoming events.
Blacks\’ Beach Nude Surf Session
A few months ago we wrote a blog that Nude Surfing Was Coming. It was February and water in California was in the high 50’s. But we knew one day the water and air would be warm enough to surf naked.
So it’s only appropriate to celebrate that for the last few months that’s been possible. Grab a board, nothing else, and head out into the surf. For a few weeks in late August and early September the water was in the high 70’s. Now it’s back to the low 70’s, and very soon will be dipping back into the 60’s (and beyond) until next summer. But while it’s here…it’s GREAT!
This year we did nude surfing at San Onofre Trail Six and Black’s Beach. The waves are generally a bit better at San O, but Black’s is a much better beach. Nicer sand, better scenery, livelier beach scene. And thanks to Lloyd and team from the Blacks Beach Bares, you can enjoy some boogie boarding, bbqs, umbrellas and great crowd when you’re not surfing.
Surf Lesson Student who was riding the waves in minutes
We took part in the Blacks Beach Surf Event, did some nude surf lessons including one with a cool guy from LA who was riding waves just minutes after his lesson started, and made some new surf friends who share the passion for getting out in the waves with nothing but a smile, a surfboard and energy to enjoy the good things of life.
In the next few weeks the water will cool and nude surfing will be a memory…at least for 2009. But it’s also a promise for 2010 and the fun of summer. If you’ve never done it. Make a resolution now that 2010 will be your year to try. It’s fun. It’s healthy. It’s natural. It’s Great!
San Onofre Nude Beach
I’ve been going to the nude beach at San Onofre for something like 15 years. It sounds corny, but for many years, it really was a little Eden. No cars, no buildings, no congestion, no services. Just sand, salt water, sandstone bluffs and serenity. And naked people.
It’s where I learned to surf, met my best friend, and let the harshness of everyday life percolate through sun and sand to become the rich story of my life. And now they plan to close it in just a few weeks. Or at least put a stop to a couple hundred people who like to gather without clothes. But since you have to pay $15 per day to park (or $175 per year for a pass) drive 5 miles to a dead-end road, walk about 1/2 mile, and end up on a beach that’s so rocky getting into the water can by physically painful, I can’t imagine many people will go there if they can’t be naked.
So time will tell. Will bureaucrats and those who believe they know how others should live their life succeed in telling us we can’t be naked on this remote stretch of beach? Or will some common sense and freedom prevail and let people continue to chill out, relax, catch a few waves in the buff? If you’re reading this you’re likely a nudist, or at least curious. We hope you’ll support the cause and help promote places and events that encourage nudity, freedom, self expression. That’s our goal. Life’s too short and too much fun to be hidden under clothes
San Onofre Nude Beach
What’s good about a summer day at Black’s Beach and some nude surfing? Just about everything!
The annual Nude Surf Event was held at Black’s Beach on Saturday August 1, 2009.
Early Morning Warm Up
Participation was a little less than previous years, possibly due to being held on a Saturday instead of Sunday, but there was still plenty of surfing action and Whoo Hoo’s. There’s even a special shirt which you can get for $10 if you email Geoff@BlacksBeach.org. The money goes to the Blacks Beach Bares, a great group worthy of your $10.
Weather started with overcast, got sunny and then a few clouds rolled through when the surf competition started. Air temps were still in the mid 70’s and water was reported at 79, so the clouds didn’t matter at all.
Participants included men and women ranging from the mid 20’s – 50’s. Waves were on the small side, but plenty of waves were caught giving the judges enough criteria to make awards for best male and best female surfer.
A boogie boarding and body surfing contest took place later in the day.
Dates for the 2010 event will be announced in early 2010, but it’s never too early to start practicing some nude surfing.
Summer Nude Surfing
Cold winter days are perfect for summer day dreaming. Knowing it’s just a few months until the sun and surf encourage us all to get naked, relax and have some fun. Living in California it’s tempting to believe we’ve got the edge on surfing and nude recreation – but that’s not really true. The south west coast of France has world class surfing, warm summer temperatures and an attitude towards nudity that puts California to shame.
Summer on a French Nude Beach
Nudity is common on most beaches in France, and at resorts like La Jenny, Montalivet or Euronat you’ll find thousands of naked people enjoying the sun and surf.
It’s been a few years, but we’ve visited La Jenny Naturist Village in France a few times.
Heading to the La Jenny Beach for Surf and Sun
An entire nude village with miles of nude beaches with reliable waves for surfing, boogie boarding and fun.
The beach is huge so even if you’re not into surfing you can enjoy Frisbee, paddleball, bbqs, or just relaxing with a very nice glass of French wine and soak up the sunshine
