Women’s East Coast Surfing Competition Returns to North Carolina

Wahines (wa-hee-nees), a Polynesian word meaning surfer girls, will compete in the Wrightsville Beach Wahine Classic on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 17 and 18. Girls 13 and up and ladies of all ages will compete in amateur and pro shortboard and longboard divisions during the two-day event.

Jo Pickett, Eastern Surfing Association (ESA) longboard champion in 2012 and shortboard champion in 2006, will co-chair the Wahine Classic with Jack Viorel of Indo Jax Surf Charities. Blockade Runner Beach Resort will serve as host hotel.

Pickett says, “We will have an elevated skill beyond what the girls in Wrightsville Beach usually see.” Pickett and Viorel plan to expand the reach of the local contest, attracting regional and national contenders from the Outer Banks, South Carolina and Florida. Read More
