Wrightsville Beach Wahine Classic
August 16 - 17, 2014
The 2014 Wahine Classic in Wrightsville Beach is Wilmington's annual All Female Surfing Contest. Women ages 5 to 65 compete in this annual surfing competition in Wilmington. Last year, surfer girls, undeterred by the elements, showed up en masse to surf in the rain on Saturday. Laughing, blinded by the rain, they surfed on, heat by heat, through squall after squall. When the rain abated on Saturday, we called our last heat, and the sun came shining through! Participants and parents enjoyed a golden evening of gentle surf. Airlie Pickett described this wahine event as “Dads and daughters”, an apt description! Call 910-465-9638 for information about the 2014 Wahine Classic.
