The First Annual Moment of Madness Shortboard Contest went off yesterday with great weather and fun surf! The boys were ripping and everybody had a good time. It was our first attempt at running a shortboard contest so we kept it real simple with only 24 participants. It was a great crew of guys made up of Oregon Coast locals and PC regulars. Like the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic a few weeks ago, 100% of the proceeds go to the construction of the Pacific City Skate Park. We would like to send a special thanks to the guys who helped sponsor this years event: Ben & Jeff's Burgers and Tacos, Oregon Surf Shop, Ossies Surf Shop, Nate Saso from Lost/Spy/Futures/Creatures of Leisure, Alex Cazanas from Xcel/Smith/Sanuk, Colin Anderson from Billabong, Mitch Leipzig and Matt Baker from O'Neill, and Corey Van Dlac from Dakine/Nixon/Rainbow Sandals!
