Beginning in 1997, hundreds of wahines gathered from near and far to surf together in The East Coast Wahines Championships. This event, enjoyed by locals and traveling wahines, halted after the summer of 2011. Jo Pickett and Jack Viorel are reviving this wahine surfing event under a new name and new management. We are encouraged by the enthusiastic responses from excited wahines and their family members, and their offers of support.
