2014 Oldtimers Longboard Classic - Next Sunday Afternoon

It's early again this year. The 2014 Cape Cod Oldtimers Longboard Classic will be held at 5 PM on Sunday, August 10th, at Wellfleet's White Crest Beach.

This year there will be a few new rules (see below). Since vintage longboards are getting valuable and harder to come by, any longboard over 9 foot may be used in the contest (without a leash). Collector boards and vintage items should still be available for everyone to drool over. This is intended to be a fun event - not to be taken too seriously. 

The rules...
  • Any longboard (9 feet or longer) regardless of age or condition will be allowed this year.
  • Contestants must be 21 and over. (Lifeguards under 21 accepted) 
  • All boards must be nine (9) feet in length or longer.
  • No leashes / No wetsuits - (If it’s too cold – tough!!!)
  • Tow-ins by Great White sharks will result in immediate disqualification
  • No whining!
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.
