(July 9, 2013 — Encinitas, CA) – The 9th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert returns to Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on July 13, 2013. An annual event near and dear to Switchfoot’s heart, the Bro-Am was created to give back to the San Diego community while benefiting local children’s charities through funds raised at a pre-event auction night soiree, as well as from vendors on the beach day-of, corporate surf team entries, sponsorships, and an after-party at the Belly Up Tavern. Since its inception in 2005, the Bro-Am has raised more than $715,000 for San Diego-based children’s charities. The members of Switchfoot recently created the Switchfoot Bro-Am Foundation to continue their mission of supporting local at-risk, homeless, and street kids year-round.

Bro-Am weekend kicks off on Friday, July 12, with an auction night event at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa at which guests will savor signature dishes from the area’s leading restaurants. The evening will also include a live music performance by Switchfoot, stellar silent and live auctions, opportunity drawings, and an exclusive sneak peek at Switchfoot’s debut feature film, Fading West.

The 9th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am presented by Hurley on July 13 will feature a surf contest, live music performances, and nerf surf jousting exposition between surf contest heats. This year’s event will welcome back the 2nd annual Rob Machado Bro Junior. Open to youngsters ages 16 and under, the Rob Machado Bro Junior places a premium on the competitor having the most fun. Those who have already signed up to participate will compete on one of Rob Machado’s boards, and stick around for the day’s festivities. Rather than a financial donation, entrants bring gently-used surf clothes to the beach on competition day as their entry fee.

Four-person corporate surf teams have secured their participation via sponsorship donation to the Switchfoot Bro-Am Foundation. This year’s Bro-Am will feature riders representing Hurley, Billabong, Surf Ride, Shaper Studios, Chelsea’s Light Foundation, Flat Rock Eats & Drinks, Arnette, Dragon, Encinitas Firefighters Association, Univ, and Macbeth, as well as surf legend Rob Machado, and members of Switchfoot. A free concert on the beach rounds out the beach day festivities, with performances by Switchfoot, Gentlemen Hall, Pacific Air, 78 Violet, and Makua Rothman. But it doesn’t end there. Bro-Am weekend then concludes with the official after-party at Belly Up Tavern, hosted by Switchfoot and featuring performances by Fiction Family, Makua Rothman, and Kelley James.
