Surfing: Lakey Peterson Classic

Surf Happens Foundation Host the Leadbetter Event


On Saturday, December 20, the Surf Happens Foundation will host its inaugural Lakey Peterson Leadbetter Classic (LPLC), a U14 Surf Competition and community gathering where nobody loses in the first round. After the first round, surfers are separated into two brackets—the main event and a repercharge division based upon heat placings.

The event is free to all competitors. All skill levels are welcome with push in divisions available for U8 surfers. Registration for the event will be hosted online at surfhappens.com through December 10, 2014. Space is limited with priority established on first come first serve basis.

The LPLC also serves to promote the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation featuring a learn-to-surf class for area youth surviving cancer with special pro guests. In addition, we are promoting the Surf Happens foundation High Five program of picking up five pieces of trash every time you go to the beach and five simple solutions to reducing pollution and personal carbon handprint. Register today at info@surfhappens.com.
