2011 Cape Cod Oldtimers Longboard Classic - August 14th

The 2011 Cape Cod Oldtimers Longboard Classic will be held at 5 PM on August 14th at Wellfleet's White Crest Beach.

This year there will be a few new rules. Since vintage longboards are getting valuable and harder to come by they have decided to allow any longboard over 9 foot to be used in the contest (without a leash). Collector boards and vintage items should still be available for everyone to drool over.

The 'new' rules...
  • Any longboard (9 feet or longer) regardless of age or condition will be allowed this year.
  • Contestants must be 21 and over.
  • All boards must be nine (9) feet in length or longer.
  • No leashes / No wetsuits - (If it’s too cold – tough!!!)
This should be a lot of fun, and a good excuse to watch an old art form (and a few old-timers) in action.  If you'd like to compete in this competition, go to the Old Timers website for complete rules and an entry form.
