Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert

Benefiting the Switchfoot Bro-Am Foundation, the Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert was held July 11 at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.

The July 11 lineup at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas included Needtobreathe, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Colony House, and of course, Switchfoot.

The 2015 events will benefit the Switchfoot Bro-Am Foundation, which the members of Switchfoot recently created to continue their mission of giving back to the local community through music, surfing and youth development programs throughout the year.

Some of this year’s beneficiaries include A Step Beyond, which offers dance education, academic support and family services for underserved youth and their families, as well as Doors of Change, which provides free music lessons to homeless youth. Event proceeds will also benefit the Encinitas Youth Scholarship Program, Surf Industry Manufacturers Association and StandUp for Kids.
