Cleanwater Classic this Weekend

Cleanwater Classic this Weekend

This is a little late notice, but the Clean Water Classic surf contest sponsored by the Surfrider Foundation is this weekend, May 17th - 19th, 2013.

It's up the coast a bit in Westport, WA, and it should be a great time. The event will raise money for Pacific NW branches of Surfrider to help protect our beaches, and another non-profit called Warm Current will be there to put on a surf camp for kids. Their mission is to teach, inspire, and support underserved communities and youth through surfing.

There are divisions for lots of different groups... Men's and women's pro/am, juniors, masters, Longboard, SUP... There's even a keiki and parent division that's free to enter! It's $50 for the pro/am divisions and $35 for the others.

There will be a few spots open for registration at the event, so it's not too late to enter. And it looks like there will be some fun sized swell too!

We will also celebrate others we’ve lost in the last two years.
