Newport Parks and Recreation will be hosting the annual Agate Beach Surf Classic on September 6-8.
This event is unique due to the partnership between City government and local surf shops and other businesses. It is a one of a kind event on the Pacific Northwest Coast. Packet pickup is on Friday evening, September 6, at Ossies Surf Shop in South Beach. Surfers will compete on Saturday and Sunday at Agate Beach just south of the lighthouse. Competitive heats will start at 8:00 A.M.
Event pre-registration is $40 online. Day of registration is $50 and closes fifteen minutes prior to the first heat. Spectating is free. There will be music, food, and a beer garden throughout both days. Prizes are given to the top three competitors in each division. There will be an open raffle on Sunday for those that buy tickets during the 2-day event.
All proceeds from the event goes towards the youth scholarship program at the Newport Recreation Center. These funds allow children from economically disadvantaged households the opportunity to participate in a number of fantastic recreation programs.
