On the deck, down to the shore and into the waves, the Pier will offer a complete 360° of California beach culture, featuring marquee ocean races, beachside competitions and full festivals vibes — all for FREE!
In keeping with the Santa Monica Pier Corporation’s (SMPC) commitment to producing the best and most distinctive “can’t believe they’re free events,” there is no cost to attend. For everyone from regular beach fanatics to even the water-resistant, Pier 360 is the can’t-miss weekend of the summer beach season.
The two-day beach bonanza brings together 500+ athletes competing for cash prizes (and glory), and ten thousand spectators who line the sand and the deck to cheer them on. There are lifeguard dory races, elite stand-up and prone paddleboard races (SUP), ocean swims, volleyball and more. And, if that’s not enough, guests can catch skaters busting 360’s on the Red Bull skate ramp, test their warrior-status with a Ninja Nation obstacle course or kick-back and relax in the Beer & Spirits Garden while festival-staple Brownies & Lemonade spin beats all-day.
