to answer some questions...unfortunately the town would not allow a swell "window" just a day for the event and one day for a "no wave" date. after talking to others that put on small, local contests that seems to be the norm. this is our first go round with a contest, and we wanted to focus on the kids. we are trying to find fun, positive activities for the kids in the our local communities. the ages max out at high school seniors(17/18) and younger. girls are invited to surf in their respective age group, and if we get enough girls we will make a division with just them on that day. for older people we do have an open division, it has a higher entry fee, but you can win $$ in that division. if the contest goes over well we hope to expand it.

don't underestimate early June - obviously its not tropical storm or Noreaster potential, but the fact is during that timeframe we get a lot of fronts that move through that can create plenty of waist-chest+ short window swell events, add to that no sea breeze, and no filthy guido bennies around yet...yep June is def. under-rated
