This past Sunday, March 24, Oahu’s Rocky Point hosted an important annual surf contest for the local community that featured some of the best rippers on the North Shore. This year, the contest was dedicated to our late friend Chas Chidester who passed away in April of 2018 at the young age of 29. Keoni Burger helped organize the Rocky Point Classic to relight the stoke.
Conditions were pretty good with overhead sets all day on a NNW decreasing but steady swell going both directions with favorable trade winds. Heats were 30 minute long in a “freesurfing” format (no colored jerseys). The Sunday vibes consisted of BBQ, friends and family enjoying a beautiful day of great waves with legends like Tom Curren and Derek Ho in the mix.
Congrats to our main man Mason Ho for his epic win! Chas is proud of you, and we sure are!
