From the creators of 1WV1FN, comes another fresh approach to the single fin log-riding contest that continues to widen the playing field and offer up a modest pay day while doing so. A contest with no travel costs, no entry fees, no heats, no false claims, no tri-fins and no limited invites. Open to all men and women riding logs and forwarding the movement in their own way. Here’s the basic idea, best surfed beachbreak wave over a 3 month period wins. Simple as that. Winning male and female surfer each gets $800 usd and an invite into a future Vans Duct Tape Invitational held in beachbreak. The videographer for each winning wave will also receive $200 usd. Numbers taken from top 6 waves in both men/women will determine an overall “coast” winner. Winning coast will retain all bragging rights for one year and we’ll probably so something else cool as well.
