2014 Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic in da books
The Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic was a hellava fun time! The crew at Moment Surf know how to put on a contest! Less than stellar surf conditions didn't spoil the fun, and the two+ day comp unfolded without a hitch with parties, music, silent auction, campfires, good food and a positive vibe all weekend. There were several photographers on the beach, so I'm sure the surfing was well documented. Here's an album on the Gorge Facebook page from a few heats both Saturday and Sunday, including awards ceremoy podium shots. Final results are forthcoming. As is the skate park. Not sure if the fundraising goal has been met yet, but we sure put a dent in it this weekend.
Up next on October 3-5th is the Surfrider Clean Water Classic in Westport, WA. The Clean Water Classic weekend includes not only great surfing (which includes shortboards, longboards and SUPs), but also live music, movie showings, a vendor village, silent auction and raffle.
The CWC is a fundraiser for the Pacific Northwest Chapters of the Surfrider Foundation. A grassroots environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the worlds oceans, waves and beaches.
