First Annual Moment of Madness Shortboard Contest

First Annual Moment of Madness Shortboard Contest

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!

Here are the results and a few photos from the contest!

The Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic is on for the 23rd year! We are excited to be back with a live event after two years of virtual events. This year’s contest holds special meaning to the northwest surfing community as we will start off the event Friday evening with a paddle-out in honor of long time contest participant and avid northwest surfer, John Newman. We will also celebrate others we’ve lost in the last two years.
