Bruhwiler Classic kids surf event Saturday in Tofino

 

The First Annual Bruhwiler Kids Classic is set for Saturday (September 20, 2014) in Tofino. 

“The free, fun, and competitive event showcases the youngest Canadian surfers who brave the cold waves for their love of surfing,” said a release from organizer Catherine Bruhwiler.

“They are committed to fun times and learning how to shred harder. Some of them just want to be in the water with their friends.  Many of them love to compete and thrive from the excitement of a day at the beach with friends, spectators, sponsors and their families,” she said.

The Beach Day will run as a one day event in Tofino, using a classic heat/judging panel format for the competitive divisions and a non-judged ‘expression session’ event for kids who are not interested in competing but still want to be part of the fun.

There will be a range of age-related divisions, as well as an Open Expression Session.

Everyone welcome. Location TBA on the event’s Facebook page. 

“It’s all about the kids and celebrating surfing in our community and in Canada,” Bruhwiler said.

With preregistration, equipment will be offered to kids who don’t have their own. Preregistrations are very appreciated.  Beach registration will be available, Bruhwiler said. 

Participants, sponsors and volunteers welcome. Connect at contests@tofinopaddlesurf.com
