Alana Blanchard and Bethany Hamilton grew up together on the Hawaiian island of Kauai and have been good friends since the age of 5. Though they have very different schedules, they remain close and value the opportunities they get to spend with each other. That is why they had so much fun coming together to host their Keiki Classic surf contest for kids on Kauai. Growing up, Alana and Bethany would surf in the annual Irons Brothers Pine Trees Classic and wanted to figure out their own way to give back to aspiring surfers on the island. So they partnered with Rip Curl to develop the Keiki Classic, and judging from the smiles on the young surfers faces, the event was a huge success.
