“Part surf contest, Frisbee competition and music festival, the event is the brainchild of Chipper "Bro" Bell, a 12-time world Frisbee champion, surf instructor and customer service representative for the Patagonia clothing company. Mixed into the surf and Frisbee competition was some Hawaiian aloha spirit, meaning, according to Bell, kindness, unity, modesty and patience. Part of the proceeds go to the groups Peace through Music, the Kokua Hawaii Foundation and the Groundswell Society.” _Scott Hadley Monday, Ventura County Star, August 25, 2008 Read more here

“Just north of the LA county line, old-school surfers, families and displaced islanders come together for a laid-back multi-generational celebration on the beach. The Aloha Beach Festival, held just west of the historic pier in Ventura, combines Hawaiian culture and athletics (i.e. an outrigger canoe race) with Southern California heritage and humor (as seen in the Old Guys Rule BZ Surf Contest -- there are no winners, only many honorable mentions).” - Lena Katz Tuesday, Orbitz Travel Blog, August 19, 2008
