Retro Surf Contest and Demo Day

Retro Surf Contest and Demo Day

Come get your groove on!

Ben & Jeff's Burgers and Tacos will be hosting the first annual Burrito Retro Classic here at Cape Kiwanda. Along with Moment Surf Company, O'Neill Wetsuits and Surftech Surf/SUP a full weekend of "old school" meets "new wave" will keep the good times flowing. On Saturday June 28th we will be having a demo day where you can take out the new O'Neill PyroTech Wetsuit for a test run and/or any number of surfboards or SUP's from Surftech. All you need will be a drivers license and credit card for deposit. Later that evening Ben & Jeff's Burgers and Tacos will be hosting a movie night with free appetizers and showing "Hawaiian" The Legend of Eddie Aikau.

The Burrito Retro Classic will be held either day, June 28th or 29th, depending on best conditions. The format is simple, the person having the most fun wins! Age groups will be 16 years old and under, and 17 years old to dead. Any single fin, twin fin, or pre 1990 shortboard will be allowed. Points will be awarded for "retro" inspired surfboard, manuevers, costume and/or wetsuit. Winners will receive free burritos from Ben & Jeff's and a really cool trophy.

Call or stop by Moment Surf Company to sign up or if you have any questions. Can you dig it man!

Welcome to the team Justin Buford! Justin has been a part of the shop since we opened in 2010. He was a true local grom who would spend his days skateboarding in our parking lot and washing rental wetsuits when he wasn’t in school. His family lived just up the street and his step-dad is one of the best surfers in town. His brother-in-law comes from the legendary South County Surf family the Ledbetters. Surfing is who and what Justin is, it’s in his blood. 
It felt a lot like home, Ireland. I suppose in a bizarre way it is, as my ancestors planted their roots in county Sligo on the North West coast of the country in the early 1700's after immigrating from Scotland. Ireland has been at the top of my travel list since long before I found out there was surf there. I formed images in my head of what the landscape would look like from seeing pictures, videos and hearing stories of infamous rocky basalt point breaks and shallow heaving slabs. Every image I had crafted fell short in comparison to seeing it all in person for the first time.
Houdini was the ultimate escape artist of his time, and it’s pretty obvious that this was the reasoning behind the naming of the Firewire Houdini; a board built with large, powerful barrels in mind, as well as the act of disappearing into those barrels and then escaping while still standing. So will the Firewire Houdini have you escaping the best barrels of your life, or will you suffer the same fate as the namesake with a fatal punch in the gut when you paddle out into some bombing lineup?
“You’ve got to pay to play” or something along those lines, is what we tell ourselves whenever a board is broken during a session. When you get comfortable enough in waves that require a step-up board like Lost’s Sabo-Taj model, the likelihood of snapping it is pretty high. Extra glassing offered from many shapers can help, but it still takes just one bad wipeout or mistimed positioning to kiss your favorite PU board goodbye. So when Lib-Tech took its “dang difficult to ding” technology and combined it with Lost Surfboard’s slab hunting Sabo-Taj, could a board be born that finally holds up to heavy conditions? Let’s find out….
