The biggest beach party in San Diego is the Over the Line Tourment where
over 50,000 people crowd onto Fiesta Island to play and party at San Diego’s
biggest beach charity event.
The event showcases a softball like game played on a rectangular field and
includes some of the most colorful names, costumes and outfits. In the words
of a local Mission Beach resident it is “Mardi Gras at the beach”.
The event now close to its 60th year sells beer, food and entry fees to raise
money for local charities on and along the beach areas including helping
sponsor beach wheelchairs for the City of San Diego’s free beach wheelchair

WHY: OTL serves as the primary fundraising source for OMBAC‘s year-round
charitable programs. OTL is more than “beer, babes and bats on the beach.”
with worldwide competition, OTL began as a San Diego original, played by
men and women into their 80’s. It is one of the last pure Southern California
traditions left untouched by commercialism. OMBAC is continuing to enjoy the
respect and admiration of the community. Focused on serving amateur sports and
youth athletics, OMBAC enjoys unmatched leadership. If not for the dedication of
its members and the unselfish gift of their time, OMBAC would no longer exist.
Any profits from OTL goes back into our community.
