Epic, rad, gnarly, sick; words often used to define some of our best surf experiences. Judging from the feedback we have received from this years Clean Water Classic, we’re pretty confident a few of those adjectives were applied. The sun wax shining and the waves were pumping providing one of the best CWC’s in history.

Waves like this one were prevalent for this years event held October 3-5.  With the change in date we were fortunate to experience and host this event on a stellar weekend. Had the date not changed and the event taken place on the typical May weekend the competition may not have even happened after looking at the surf that was happening at that date, totally skunked. The motivation for the change was in large part stemmed from listening to our competitors and volunteers. Thanks to all those who voiced their opinion, we really do appreciate it.

Lastly, we had eight volunteer chapters from the PNW receive credit for volunteering 12+ hours of time to the competition. The funds raised from the event will go to funding their specific chapter programs and campaigns. Thank you to all the chapters for being so on the ball with volunteer shifts, couldn’t have done it without you.
