Beachside Resident " In its tenth year, the Waterman’s Challenge is older than most of the menehunes who will be surfing in it, old enough to be its own little slice of Cocoa Beach surfing history." By Athena Sasso
'This year we have a new division called “Skip Savage 1st Timers,” open to anyone who has never surfed in a contest but wants to for the first time. (You’ll only get one chance to surf in that division — think about it!) Other divisions include longboard, shortboard, SUP, bodyboard, the Rodeo and the Real Retro.
'On Saturday night, the Waterman’s Luau will be at the Cocoa Beach Pool Pavilion, so bring your paddleboard for a friendly race around that island. You can get tickets for the luau and sign up to surf at pre-registration on Friday, June 10, 5:30 p.m. by Mambos at the International Palms Resort. If you’re passionate about surfing and friends, you’ll find we take our fun pretty seriously around here.'
