ENCINITAS — Thousands greet Moonlight Beach for the sun, waves and the 11th annual Switchfoot Bro-Am on Saturday.

The annual event, which features live music, a surf contest and fundraiser, is hosted by members of Switchfoot. Since its inception in 2005, the event has raised more than $1 million for San Diego-based charities.

Carlsbad-based ViaSat broadcast the event live online for those not able to attend.

Besides Switchfoot taking the stage, Need to Breathe, Drew Holcomb, Colony House and Brynn Elliott performed to the widely attended event.
