SURF DAYTON - Community Park & Play

Dates:  June 14, 28; July 12, 26; August 2, 16, 30

Selected Thursdays (during the 2018 season)

Get ready to Surf Dayton!!! Meet your buddies at one of the new ‘River Features’ on selected Thursday evenings this summer!  Bring your stand up paddleboards and/or kayaks and become a regular participant at this Community Park & Play!  We plan to use either the Eastwood Park feature or the Riverscape feature, depending on water levels.  The location will be posted.  This event will be for all skill levels; with good swimming skills.  It’s a super fun time and a great chance to play around in the river features with the support of the paddling community.  The event will run from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  Check out this short video!

If you need equipment, no problem!   Boat and board rentals can be reserved ahead of time; and delivered to the wave.  There’s just one catch… you must preregister and prepay for this service.  Fees: There is no charge to attend the event; however, will be:  $20 plus tax (cash/check); $21 plus tax (credit card)    

The Surf Dayton, Community Park & Play event is an opportunity to meet people, try your hand at surfing and playing in the feature.  You don’t have to know how… you can watch and experiment.  There are no rules saying that you have to standup and surf on the boards.  You can have just as much fun going out on your belly or sitting on your knees.  You’ve got to try it!  It’s so fun!  Note: Good swimming skills are essential for this activity.

You can pre-register for equipment by stopping by the store, calling 937-222-7020, or you can e-mail at: wwwh@erinet.com.  Reservations should be made before 3:00 the day of the event.
