The Alliance for a Living Ocean and the Wooden Jetty Surf Shop are pleased to announce the Long Beach Island Longboard Classic - a new surfing contest and beach concert to take place on LBI on August 22nd 30th, 2009.

The LBI Longboard Classic will be held at the 65th Street surfing beach in Brant Beach, adjacent to the Long Beach Township Municipal Annex.

The event is named the “Classic” because only vintage longboards will be allowed, and the contestants will be scored by classic contest criteria such as noserides, hanging ten, cheater fives, dropknee turns, fin first takeoffs, spinners, length of ride and cross-stepping style.  No leashes, and no board modifications.

Surf Instrumental band the Diamondheads will be performing live immediately following the contest, performing a retro mix of Dick Dale and Ventures songs with their own 1960’s era-inspired compositions.

This event promises to be a bitchin’ good time for friends and family, whether you surf of not.  Come out for “fun, sun and stoke” and support a great cause!!!

Entry fee is $35 for pre-registration and $40 at the day of the event, and all proceeds benefit the Alliance for a Living Ocean.

Contest divisions will be:
- 15 and Under
- Open Men
- Open Women
- Tandem

I'm definitely going to this one.  Classic contests are nothing but fun.  If anyone wants to come but needs a vintage log, PM me and I can bring some extras.  Most are good riders of the 9'6" variety.

If I'm not back and school or working I'm in. So it actually has to be a vintage board or can it be a vintage style board, like big single fin, scooped nose, 50-50 rails, and a big square tail. Only its a year old Bing? If not I might take you up on that offer NJ Longboarder.
Peace,
Kyle

Looks like the rules state "Vintage Boards, No leashes, No modifications".  Have a few boards that have fins replaced with repro style fins, so I don't know if they will be allowed.  I'll have to send an email to the organizers.
 
Hope they don't count extensive ding repair as modifications.

Yeah, A few of mine I had to replace the fin setups. Does that discount the board? They let it pass in the Manasquan event.

  • I highly doubt I am going to the contest.  If anyone is heading down that needs a board, PM me and I might have one to borrow (depending on the conditions). 
     
    Really dig the classic contests, but only get one free pass per weekend and I plan to use it all day on Sunday.

  • I've got the right board for the job. Anyone else down, if the expected swell peters out? You're more than welcome to use the ol' 1964 Bunger if you come wif.
