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.
Mark the date on your calender Oregonians! Get your hands on the new Lib Tech Waterboards two weeks from now. Demos are free, and all you will need to check out a board is a valid ID and credit card. There are going to be a lot of boards for demo so tell your friends, it’s gonna be a blast! For those of you that don’t know, these are revolutionary new surfboards, and deserve a test ride at the least. Not only are Waterboards environmentally freindly, they are Dang Difficult to Ding(2D2D), and I believe they also surf very well. Don’t take my word for it though, get out there and try one! See you all there!
