Big Wednesday is held the second Wednesday of every August at San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente California. It's motto is simple; skip work at surf. Some of you may be old enough to remember the movie, but for those who don't the philosophy is very similar. It's a day to take off from work, grab your board, throw it in your bus and head down to the beach. 

There's no schedule to follow, or admission prices to pay (except $15 bucks for parking), but this is just a day to relax with some friends down at the beach. Hot Dog Fred is cooking Brats, and we give out three awards the whole day. One is for the best ride of the day during our "relaxed" version of a surf contest, the second is for the best example of a VW Surf Vehicle, and a third for our Corn Hole tournament. In the years past, the awards have seemed to be the highlight of the afternoon. We hope to see you down at the beach, with or without a board...
