Bring your wetsuit! The Tuawera Longboard Classic is a new longboarding and retro shortboarding event that takes place in Sumner, Christchurch. We ran our first event last year the weekend before Christmas and had a huge drive behind it.
This year, we will run the Classic on the 22nd - 23rd of October with our Tuawera Twist official competition after-party on Sunday the 23rd.
This will be our first year running a two-day event and the expectation of around 110 competitors throughout the divisions.
We have tried to emphasise the community at the Tuawera Classic. All sponsors are made or manufactured in Christchurch. We want to create an environment that is for the local surfers from any level of surfing and age. The Tuawera has a huge prize pool and is first in first served with entries. Although we try to give the winners a good incentive, we are more worried about people's experience with one another at the competition.
