Some players may be given the opportunity to move up to one of the two CCL clubs during the summer. The team will be almost exclusively college players from the Southern California area. The California Surf will play a 30 game schedule for the summer of 2020.

History:

Formerly known as the Orange County Surf, the team was formed in 2015 as an affiliate team for the Orange County Riptide. The Surf competed as an independent for their first season before playing two years in the Sunset Baseball League. While playing in the Sunset Baseball League, the Surf won back-to-back championships in 2016 & 2017.

The Surf moved back to playing as an independent college team to allow the team to play more games against CCL team and to have a more flexible schedule. Through the years, the Surf has seen players go from the Junior College ranks and earn scholarships to Division 1 universities. Several former Surf players have return to their respective colleges to become All-Conference players and All-Americans. The goal for the California Surf is to develop players to the point they can earn a roster spot for DI, DII, DIII or NAIA schools or return to their colleges as a better player.

California Surf players come from the Southern California area and can provide their own housing and transportation to games played locally.
