This is a Contest 7 - Wave Watch - Possible Back-up Date Announcement
Running surf contests is fun! Way more fun, when there's waves! Anyone who surfs in Florida knows it can be a real challenge to find a bump out there. We have booked Saturday December 10 in hopes that by Friday morning we will be able to make the call. This way we can hopefully insure that we are helping everyone to plan their weekend with plenty of notice.
So, please let everyone know, Friday morning we will post whether the contest will be held Saturday. No need to message us, it will be posted.
Thanks and let's pray for surf! See you on the beach!!
Pollywogs is a "push-in" division and is available to beginner surfers. Once you surf in Menehunes you have graduated from Pollywogs and are no longer eligible to surf in Pollywogs. We will make an exception for Pollywogs who want to surf in Menehune Longboard.
Choose your division and proceed to checkout. If you have an additional division(s) you wish to surf in, scroll down and select from the "additional entry" section for the division(s) you wish to add, then proceed to checkout. Easy, huh?
