Westport, WA. – The 10th Annual Cleanwater Classic the weekend of May 13-15 is expected to attract more than 100 surfers from Washington, Oregon and British Columbia to compete in high tech wetsuits on the waves of Westport’s Half Moon Bay off the jetty at Westhaven State Park.
The Cleanwater Classic brings cold-water surfers of all ages and proficiency levels together to compete in divisions for men, women, masters, juniors and kids. This year’s classic welcomes four Hawaiian pro-longboarders to compete in a pro/am. Hawaiian surfers will also help with a ‘surf camp’ for up to 20 youth, ages 6-18 that will be conducted in two-two hour sessions at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The Clean Water Classic benefits the Pacific Northwest Surfrider Foundation that has 12 chapters in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Proceeds from the classic help support chapter programs and campaigns from clean water advocacy to public education and outreach throughout the year.”
