    The official

    of Blue Tarp Surfing

  • Once upon
    a tarp,

    in sunny Southern California,
    there was a man.

  • One day while at
    his boat,

    a gust of wind
    began to blow...

  • The wind caught
    the tarp...

    ...and it blew in the air!
    This gave the man an idea...

  • The man
    rushed home,

    and told his boys
    about his incredible new idea.

  • One tarp,
    one skateboard,

    and a ton of fun later...

  • Blue Tarp Surfing was born!

    And the sport has only just begun to catch on!

  • Blue Tarp Surfing Gets a Voice!

    As seen in the October 2010 issue of Surfer Magazine

    Designing the future is not as easy as we pictured it. Even when all the ideas and resources are there, it takes time. When Blue Tarp Surfing began we were happy to let the tarping aloha spread. We sat back and watched the evolution of a sport take place. It has taken on a life of its’ own. We were there for the birth and now we are here to nurture the direction it is growing in to.

    Blue Tarp Surfing has taken on many creative forms, with some pretty creative stories, and with some pretty creative characters.  Not wanting to take the fun out of the sport, we have just kept a low profile until now.  But…it is time…time to give Blue Tarp Surfing a voice.

    Dodge, Wyatt and Cody seem to be popping up everywhere…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av4RXjZHDqE

  • Adidas goes Tarp Surfing

    In a European Adidas commercial they start off  Tarp Surfing. 

    It is obvious that this is more than just a craze as more and more companies jump on board sponsoring and using the likeness of Tarp Surfing.  It is no wonder as Tarp Surfing always draws a crowd and when it comes to advertising that is what the goal is. 

    From Tarp companies (who actually show sales up 1% due to Tarp Surfing), to surf companies like Rusty and energy drinks like Rockstar and Red Bull, to giants like Apple. Tarp Surfing is real and valuable. It is crazy what we started.  Good thing Blue Tarp Surfing is so much fun too!!

  • The Story Of How Tarp Surfing Started

      Tarp Surfing started in 2009 in the hills of San Juan Capistrano by the Brady family and a close family friend Dodge Weirath.  Mr. Brady was covering his boat with a large Blue Tarp when he saw the wind blow a wave through it.  He showed the boys and they took it from there. Soon after, Tarp Surfing was born.

    For Christmas of 2009 the boys got a new tarp and a video camera.  The day after the first YouTube Tarp Surfing video titled “Blue Tarp Surfing” was posted.  Soon it was on Surfline where the guys from Korduroy.tv saw it. Together they made the second Tarp Surfing video called “Tarp Pits” now considered the best Tarp Surfing video ever made. Months later after seeing these videos another video simply called “Tarp Surfing” was produced by Homer Hernard and a group of surfers in Santa Cruz.  After being posted and heavily marketed it went viral in less than a week.

    The San Juan group knowing this was way more than just a blast to do filed a patent on the game of Tarp Surfing in December 2009.  Since then they have filed patents on specially designed tarps and accessories just for Tarp Surfing.
