2014 Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic Recap

I went down to Pacific City for a couple of days to hang out and compete in the 16th Annual Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic this past September.  The comp has been going on for a while and is a rare longboard gem for the Northwest now that the Lincoln City event has been decommissioned.  There’s something pretty cool about a bunch of big boards (9’0″ and up) all getting together for some surf.  The competition is also a benefit to help build a skate park for the Coastal Oregon town of Pacific City.  Hosted by Moment Surf Shop, and Pelican Brewery, these guys know how to throw a party.

Team Rider Kelland Ong on his Takayama Scorpion

Introducing our most recent team rider Kelland Ong.  Stoked to have him on board!  Check him out wake surfing his 6’8″ Takayama Scorpion.  The Scorpion is a sick little board with a really unique shape.  Made for smaller surf, with a fat nose for noseriding, and a pointed tail for snappy turns, it’s a super fun board for wake surfing.

“Surfed the Takayama last night.  Incredibly fun board.  More people need to be using this for wakesurfing! ”
