Results for the Burrito Retro Classic

The Burrito Retro Classic presented by Ben & Jeff’s Burgers and Tacos along with Moment Surf Company was held this past Sunday in Pacific City. After a few morning showers the clouds broke and the day was filled with sun and good vibes. Despite a challenging swell, everybody on their retro boards charged the overhead waves and some amazing rides were had. Over 30 participants dusted off their classic surfboards, several climbed into their 30 year old wetsuits, and everybody got their groove on. The event was a fundraiser for the Pacific City Skate Park and we are happy to announce that over $700 was raised. A big thank you to those who participated, volunteered or just came out to watch the festivities. In fact, several spectators walked up during the contest and donated additional money to the park. We can’t thank you enough for all the support!

We couldn’t have pulled the event off without the help of Ebon and Nick and their entertaining commentary. Joel for being the head judge and Michelle, Cedar, Hollis and Cliff for everything else it takes to run a contest! A special shout out to Lee Leatherman for donating several boards from his own quiver for people to ride. Keep checking back for a video of the event being donated by Big Wings Media.

It was 7 days prior to this year’s Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic and the weather forecast was calling for 40mph south winds and heavy rain. After 10 plus years of running the contest, I had gained enough experience to not enter panic mode, yet.
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.
