The Switchfoot Bro-Am is an annual surfing and music festival held in San Diego that raises money to provide grants to organizations that provide services to homeless, at-risk and disadvantaged youth.
The summer festival is two events, the BRO-AM Benefit Party and Beach Fest. The benefit party brings together professional athletes, musicians, artists, and philanthropists to raise money for the charity.
The Beach Fest, which typically has more than 17,000 attendees, features surfing, food, and live music. The Beach Fest includes a surf jousting competition, where competitors attempt to topple each other while riding waves.
The event and foundation supports a number of non-profits in San Diego, including A Step Beyond, Challenged Athletes Foundation, Feeding San Diego, Monarch School and Save the Music Foundation.
In 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was held virtually on July 19, and included an online concert for at-risk youth in the San Diego community.
The date for Bro-Am 2022 has not been set yet.
