On September 6th, celebrities will unite to raise ocean awareness at the Surfrider Foundation Celebrity Expression Session, taking place at First Point, Surfrider Beach in Malibu as part of the 45th Anniversary of the Malibu Surfing Association Classic.
An event like no other, the Surfrider Foundation’s Celebrity Expression Session allows celebrities to show off their surfing skills and moves in a free surf format. In addition, celebrities can win prizes for every wave they catch and ride courtesy of Project Blue, a collective between six of the surf industry’s top brands to raise funds aimed at supporting the Surfrider Foundation. Celebrities taking part in the surf session include Chad Lowe, Richard Burgi, Flea, Sal Masekela, Peter DiStefano, Brandon Cruz and David Chokachi.
“As surfers, we are always at the beach and in the water, so raising awareness on the conditions of our oceans and beaches is really important to us,” says actor David Chokachi. “This event is a great opportunity for us to do so and catch some waves with our friends.”
The MSA Classic is a two-day longboard competition honoring the association’s founding members. Started in 1962, the MSA Classic is the longest running longboard competition in Southern California.
“We are excited to be part of the MSA Classic,” says Matt McClain, Surfrider Foundation’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “With their enthusiasm and support, the Expression Session will be a great addition to the legendary competition.”
