20th Annual OMBAC Classic Longboard Surfing Contest

The contest, a beach community tradition for two decades, is an opportunity for surfers and their vintage surfboards to gather for a nostalgic competition that has become more of an event than a contest. All contestants surf on 1969 or older longboards, 9′ or longer, with no leash. Separate Open (for Men and Women) and Menehune (Youth 16 and under) divisions compete in double-elimination heats for trophies and prizes. Every contestant will receive a t-shirt and refreshments. T-shirts and other OMBAC surfwear will be available for purchase at the contest.
