Event Blasts Off at Ala Moana Bowls

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 1 June, 2011 : - - Honolulu -- With nearly two-and-a-half decades of success behind it, the Local Motion Surf Into Summer contest went down over Memorial Day weekend at the famed Ala Moana Bowls on Oahu’s South Shore. With a plethora of surfers riding all forms of craft, competitors in the 24th annual event took to the rippable head-high walls at Bowls with beaming smiles and a thirst to score one of Town’s most perfect waves with just a few other competitors out.

With more than a dozen divisions that represented everything from Women’s longboard to men’s bodyboard to men’s shortboard and everything in between, the event truly represented the sport on a number of levels and crafts.

Not only did some of the state’s finest amateur surfers tear apart Bowls, but this year’s contest also featured a special Freesurf Magazine Industry Division that saw some of the men behind the brands dons jerseys and duke it out. In the end, Kaipo Guerrero, the man behind the mic at most surf contests, stood tall and took the win.

“It’s always been a great event that kicks off the summer and this year was no different.” It’s always fun to see the industry guys get out in the water and mix it up,” said Freesurf Magazine editor Jeff Mull. “The event just ended and we’re already looking forward to next year.”

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of the sponsors who supported this year’s event: Quiksilver, Roxy, Jamba Juice, Vitamin Water, Freesurf Magazine, Star 101.9, and Freestyle watches.
