20th July 2015 – The WSA (Western Surfing Association) hosted its tenth annual Menehune contest, which has now been renamed the Sunbum Surf Fest. This event is held annually at Goldenwest in Huntington Beach in the off-season and was created to introduce new surfers to the WSA and contest surfing as well as a tuning session for established competitors.

Cate Stokes, a returning competitor, said, “It’s always great to be in heat during the off-season. I look at this contest as a way to get prepared for the next WSA season.”

The surf conditions, while in the 3 – 4 foot range, proved to be challenging for most competitors. The sets that came in were walled. However, in the middle section, there were some fun corners to be found.

Sun Bum was a fun new sponsor, they provided sunscreen, paddle ball, and frisbees for the competitors to play with between heats. The WSA always provides breakfast and lunch, making it a fun family beach day.

It was great to see the under 10’s so confident and performing so well on the waves with surf/skate super grom Bella Kenworthy taking out the youngest division.

Congratulations to the event organisers and all the competitors on celebrating the 10th year of a great comp – The Mermaid Society also congratulates Liv Stokes on her longboard win and for her ongoing contributions to brining you the latest West Coast surf news.
