Amateur bodysurfing event scheduled for this weekend
For the first time in decades, Da Hui Waimea Bay Shorebreak Shootout, an amateur bodysurfing event, is to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday at Waimea Beach Park, or the next weekend if conditions are not good.
But event organizer Mahina Chillingworth said the forecast for this weekend is promising for the competition, which was last held 20 years ago.
The shootout includes women's, under 17, men's and "rubbah-slippah" divisions.
Hui O He'e Nalu and Aloha Salads are sponsoring the surf meet.
