The surf contest is a GO for this Saturday. The forecast looked grim for most of the week but it looks as though there will be an uptick in some contestable waves in the beginning part of the day, with the tide dropping towards midday and then the afternoon eddy of onshore winds, all this should add a little size to keep those boards moving. The contest will be held at the main jetty at Beach 90th Street and sign ups at 8 am on the beach.
To make the day more fun and fluid for the contest we’re doing away with numerous quarters, semis and finals. The Rockaway Beach Surfer’s Association contest will be holding a new contest format for this great event. Each division will be competing in a one hour EXPRESSION SESSION and the BEST WAVE WINS!
Although each competitor will be squared up against some others, it’s really about you and the waves to get that one great ride. Judges will score accordingly and the surfer with that one great ride and highest points will take it for that division.
The Divisions will be Men’s, Women’s, Boys 16 & Under (age as of 7/1/16) and Girls 16 & Under (age as of 7/1/16). Entry fee is $15. There will also be the Best Wipeout award in each of the divisions sponsored by the Gotham Surf Club. By the way, we will not be limiting the surf craft you ride, it’s a free-for-all but you must have a jersey to eligible for the prizes and to take out the top spot.
It’s going to be a phenomenal day with fantastic weather forecasted, great local people milling about, tents with awesome local goods, skate comp, surf comp and ridiculously talented bands. So get down, get involved and sign up for the surf & skate comps and bring lots of coin to buy the local goods on display on the boardwalk. Yay!BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
