Logstradamus 2015

June 27, 2015 | First Street Jetty in Virginia Beach, VA

Logstradamus started as a renegade contest comprised of unconventional twists and turns and has since morphed into an all day festival of music, surfing, vendors & more. The prediction is an unmeasurable amount of weirdo ripping, sopping blazers and wizardly maneuvers all atop single fin surfing boards and during an all day music fest on the sand. The aim is to inspire community and camaraderie through a friendly competition of expression and individuality and to showcase the amazing local wares of Hampton Roads. Enjoy a full day of local vendors, music, and a single-fin surfing competition. It’s truly a metaphysical never-ending jawbreaker of vibe curation.
