LeiOut History

The idea to create this tournament initially originated from a meeting by the local organization LAOUT in 1998 in which everyone there agreed it was time to host a premiere LA tournament. Alex David brought up the Wildwood tournament (at the time it had only been around a couple of years in NJ). Everyone thought a beach tournament was a good idea and worth giving it a shot. It would be the first on the West Coast, a pretty big accomplishment considering the newness of beach Ultimate. They chose MLK weekend because of the Monday holiday and because it was before the club season started. Canada Gordon volunteered to be TD. It took a lot of people to make it happen. There was experimentation and growing pains from year to year. They wanted a luau feel with BBQ and leis the first year. They tried the tournament initially at Dockweiller and Zuma before bringing it to Santa Monica Beach in the fourth year, where it stayed through 2017. Canada handed over the reigns after 2004.

In 2005 Brian Calle took over as TD and continued through 2018 when Lei Out first moved to Huntington Beach.

Andy Bandit is the current TD, starting in 2019.
