12th Annual East Coast Wahine Championships

Wrightsville Beach Beach, NC (July 11, 2008) — Southeastern North Carolina is gearing up for the largest women’s surfing contest on the right coast- the East Coast Wahine Championships. Held every August in Wrightsville Beach, the ECWC encourages female surfers of all ages and abilities to join in the fun. Nearly 200 wahines will travel from Maine to Puerto Rico bringing friends and family for a weekend of camaraderie and competition.

This year, the ECWC will host an Open Shortboard division for surfers to test their skills in an all-ages category. Other age-based divisions include shortboard, longboard, bodyboard, and novice for first time competitors, as well as a 10 and under division where parents may assist their children in the water. Entry forms for the 12th annual ECWC are available on-line,

The East Coast Wahine Championships was the first all female amateur surfing contest on the east coast. The event began in 1997 as a tribute to a late friend and as a way to give women the spotlight in the surf. The event has since grown steadily receiving national coverage. The ECWC was most recently mentioned in the book Surfing, Women of the Waves, by Linda Chase.

The ECWC is proud to announce Billabong as its presenting sponsor. Billabong produces active lifestyle, fashion-forward clothing, accessories and related products designed and distributed to a worldwide customer base. The products are developed in the authentic environment of the surf culture and sold primarily through surf and specialty retail boutiques. Billabong sponsors the world’s best female surfers, snowboarders and skateboarders, and is committed to supporting the progression of women’s surfing, and aspiring female surfers.
