The Aloha Beach Festival was designed to give back to our local social and environmental organizations. Chipper and his family each year choose a charity organization and they volunteer for them for one year. Each year the Festival has grown in size and scope and brings the community together to share the aloha spirit.

“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.”

“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).” Read article in VC Reporter here: Aloha Beach Festival
