2020 Free Virtual

Surf Challenge for Kids, ages 4-15

The Ken Whalen Surf Challenge is in memory of Ken’s love for family, surf and the beach. The goal for the event is to encourage kids (15 and under) and challenged athletes to strengthen their connection with surfing by competing and having a fun day at the beach with their friends and family. This event is geared towards beginner and intermediate surfers as a way in which to deepen their love for surfing. We focus more on having fun than the actual competition.

This year’s event will be held virtually. Simply download a video of your child’s best wave of the summer. Complete the registration form, and we’ll follow up with instructions on how to participate.
