Tombomb Wahine Classic 2013

Tombomb Wahine Classic 

Saturday January 26, 2013  l  Kohanaiki

The Tombomb Wahine Classic began to advocate preservation of the Kona coastlines, promote women's surfing and encourage community involvement. A wahine surf contest and beach cleanup in Kona aimed at encouraging teamwork and camaraderie between women surfers. 

The Tombomb Wahine Classic is set up on a team format. Teams of 5 are selected prior to the event. Each team is made up of diverse water women from old to young, shortboarder, to longboarder and anywhere in between. Each team surfs together in a "heat."

Heats consist of one team surfing all together, so each surfer is encouraged to push their teammates, share waves, and work toward a common score. Each individual surfer will achieve a total score based on the top three scoring waves. The individual scores will be added up to achieve a team score. To be fair, entrants cannot select their own teams.

For additional information, including registration, visit the Tombomb Hawaii website.
