Scores of neoprene clad kids hit North Chesterman Beach on Saturday, Sept. 14 to participate in the 6th annual Bruhwiler Kids Classic.

The rain graciously held off for most of the free kid’s surfing event that showcases Canada’s best young surfers. Participants had the option to register for classic heat/judging divisions as well as fun, non-judged ‘Expression Sessions’ where everyone wins.

Prize draws and beach games took place throughout the day and Surfrider provided delicious hot chocolate for all to guzzle after braving the cold waves.
