Preliminary heats run all day Saturday, along with good-fun beach games for killer prizes. The top six surfers advance to the finals on Sunday. Lunch is provided by Wahoo's Fish Taco and drinks courtesy of Pepsi (included in entry fee). Enjoy free Enza apples while they last!
Day two, Sunday takes you back into the surf for the final heats. The highest scoring shortboarders, longboarders and bodyboarders advance to the day's final round where this year's champions will claim their title as top grom.
Join BoardStories TV for a very special "Expression Session" on Sunday. Grown-ups and keiki compete in a tandem division, where fun is the biggest factor. Prizes are awarded to the top three teams.
Wrap it up with the awards ceremony where the top six surfers are honored with trophies and prize packs. A few finalists will be selected as the "most deserving" surfers for showing intergrity, sportsmanship and strength of character. T&C Surf's president Craig Sugihara will reward these special kids by handing them a new surfboard.
