Classic Surf – Country Feeling Classic JBay 1984

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

A Youtube playlist of 3 videos of the Country Feeling Classic JBay 1984. First run as the Beach Hotel Classic in 1981 with sponsorship totaling R850 (now US $130), the inaugural event saw SA and international surfing legend Shaun Tomson beat a field of 27 in flawless 5 foot surf at Supertubes. This became the Lightening Bolt / Country Feeling J-Bay Surf Classic in June 1982 when Cheron stepped in to sponsor the event and Greg Day (Aus) took first place.

The following year saw the amateur division won by Durban’s Marc Wright, with Californian David Barr taking the pro title in what had become the Country Feeling Surf Classic. Upgraded to ASP World Tour status in July 1984, the surfing world suddenly sat up and took notice when Supertubes delivered four solid days of incredible 8 – 10 foot surf, leading ASP General Manager Al Hunt to rate it as one of the best 20 surf contests of all time.

After numerous epic confrontations between the likes of then world champ Tom Carroll, Shaun Tomson and Michael Ho, 18 year-old Mark Occhilupo (Aus) beat Hans Hedeman (Haw) in the final.

Grant Corgan and Dylan Thomas of Surf Ski Kauai on their Molokai Crossing in 2012.

“A little over a year ago we were given an amazing gift…the gift of getting to celebrate our love.  Jim and Caroline sent us on our honeymoon to the beautiful and magical island of Kauai.  During that time we had extraordinary healing, healing of living in the moment, and seeing the beauty.  One of the magical connections that Jim made was with us and Dylan Thomas of Surf Ski Kauai.   Dylan is a waterman extraordinaire, Surf Ski paddler and an all around phenomenal human being.  Jim had set it up with Dylan to take Grant out paddling in the Surf Ski, knowing the two would hit it off.  The tandem Surf Ski is a 28 foot long / 18 inch wide kayak of sorts, designed for open water/off-shore racing and riding waves”

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships

Registration for the 17th annual Molokai-2-Oahu Paddleboard World Championships (M2O), presented by Kona Longboard Island Lager, opens Friday March 15th at 12:00 PST. The event, scheduled for July 28th will draw an international field of paddlers and, as in previous years, sell out far in advance of the July 1st registration deadline. Register at www.molokai2oahu.com.

M2O is much more than a championship race. It is a 32-mile journey from Molokai to Oahu across the Ka’iwi Channel – one of the deepest, most treacherous channels in the world. The ever-changing conditions of this channel requires both athletic ability and navigation skills – a true championship test. M2O is the iconic event in the paddling community and has become the milestone for those seeking to define themselves as watermen. Like other iconic endurance events M2O is a deeply personal experience and defines a champion in every sense of the word.

The images and stories from the M2O race fuel the minds of paddlers across the globe driving the passion that propelled paddling as the largest growth segment in action sports today. M2O is infused with the culture of Hawaii and its people and all who attend will feel the enigmatic spirit of Aloha.

For further information on the race, race registration, rules and requirements go to www.molokai2oahu.com
