Just a quick update to all the wonderful kids coming to surf together on Saturday!
For the kids in the competitive divisions we have had to cap their participation to 1 division only (in appropriate age group) due to the huge amount of registrations. In order to let all the kids have a fair chance to participate, we are definitely encouraging the competitive kids to also do the expression session as their 2nd division.
We thought better to include everyone, than exclude anyone! And next year, the event will have to run over 2 days!
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for sharing the daylight with each other (101) and the understanding.
A successful beach clean up was held Thursday afternoon at Cox Bay in Tofino. The Bruhwiler Families hosted the event so the kids could clean up their playground in preparation for The 2nd Annual Bruhwiler Kids Classic surf contest & beach day, Saturday September 19th.
The kids noticed there were a lot of micro plastics to be picked up! beer cans and flip flops.
