This May 25, 26, & 27, the Local Motion Surf Into Summer Contest returns to light up the Ala Moana Bowl. Three days of non-stop, high octane, top-notch surfing will kick the summer off proper. Vissla is the presenting sponsor with additional support from Kona Red, G-Shock, Freesurf, Wade Tokoro surfboards, Future Fins and Vertra.
This year, we welcome two new additions to the summer tradition: the Vissla Creators and Innovators Division and the Stabl Thrash for Cash Pro Division.
The Vissla Creator and Innovators Division
This new division is meant for those who create the best of today, the innovations of tomorrow, and the alternatives to the norm. In this division, surfers must ride boards they have shaped themselves. Calling all shapers; this is your time to shine.
The Stabl Thrash for Cash Pro Division
In addition to the amateur divisions, Surf Into Summer will have a pro division where 48 gladiators will battle it out for $6k in cold hard cash. Featuring 4-man heats, the format will allow professional surfers to exhibit their talent at “bowls” and earn cash as they advance to the finals. Get your entry in early; 48 surfer maximum in the “Stabl Thrash for Cash” Pro Division.
Entry forms are available at all Local Motion retail locations across Hawaii as well as the Hawaiian Style shop on Kapiolani boulevard.

*Note: The Longboard Division in now a completely open division to women and men of all ages. Also, with the changes to this year’s Surf into Summer, Bodyboard Divisions will have a 1 year hiatus to determine if an additional date or alternate venue is required to host a competitive high quality bodyboarding event. In the interim Local Motion, will be supporting this year’s USBA contest at Sandy Beach.
