Truth be told, there are far too many badass events across the globe to attend within the year. But if it were physically—and financially—possible, we’d go EVERYWHERE. From dirt to asphalt, from mountains to desert; the call of revving bike engines beckons us…but the beach? Yes, we’re based in San Diego where bikes and beaches go together like stripper poles and stilettos, but more often than not, all the cool events are held where there’s plenty of room to run and play, and urban beach areas in Southern California are typically without.
Roland Sands Design thought otherwise, however, and after dreaming about a beachfront moto event for years, the RSD crew kicked off the inaugural Moto Beach Classic this past October at Bolsa Chica State Beach, an underdeveloped beach area just north of Huntington City Beach in Orange County California.
Partnering with Sea Legs Live, an outdoor concert venue on the sand at Bolsa Chica, RSD’s one-day festival brought bikes, babes, bands, and booze together at the beach—all the Bs any moto lover can only wish for in one place—along with many of the best brands within the motorcycle community.
Amazing vendors, Super Hooligan flat track racing, drag and mini-bike racing, motorcycle stunt shows, surf comps, local artists, food, and custom motorcycles packed Bolsa Chica to capacity with the help of two-wheel enthusiasts from all over, and to top it off, reggae tunes filled the air during the day with live performances by Black Uhuru and Wargirl, while punk rock closed out the night with Lit and Unwritten Law taking the stage.
Is the Moto Beach Classic an event we’ll look forward to in the future? HELL YES! We’re already counting down the days until next year’s, and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
