Junior surf contest set for Oct. 6 at La Jolla Shores

The Windansea Surf Club has announced that entries are now being accepted for its annual Menehune and Junior Surf Contest to be held Saturday, Oct. 6 at La Jolla Shores.

Longboard and shortboard divisions for all age groups are offered for boys and girls 16 years of age and under, including the popular (and very entertaining) Super Menehunes for 6-year-olds and under.

The event attracts young competitive surfers and their families from throughout the West Coast, Hawaii and Baja California. The granddaddy of all junior surf contests, the WindanSea Menehune contest was first held at La Jolla Shores in 1965 and was won by a young girl, Margot Godfrey (Oberg), a future world champion.

World-renowned WindanSea Surf Club emerged in the early 1960's from a group of the most accomplished and free-thinking surfers to be found anywhere in the world. 

This groundbreaking assembly of the greatest surfing talent ever into the WindanSea Surf Club began in 1963 and led to a long string of victories in California and International competitions.

The club also began a tradition of community service, creating a positive public image for surfing and pioneered ecological and beach- access issues. From Legends Skip Frye, Mike Hynson (of Endless Summer fame), and Pipeline surfer Butch Van Artsdalen, to popular stylist Joel Tudor and two-time World Longboard Champion Jen Smith, the WindanSea Surf Club continues to be a force in the surfing world.

The WindanSea Surf Club is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 corporation with active members from every generation. The club is still going strong after more than 50 years of competition and community service and relies on the generous support of the community. For more information, visit
