Wahine's returning to Wrightsville Beach

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - After a year away, the Wahine's are returning to Wrightsville Beach.

The Wrightsville Beach Wahine Classic is scheduled for August 17 and 18 at the south end.

Jo Pickett of Crystal South Surf Camp, has partnered with Jack Viorel of Indo Jax Surf School to bring the event back to Wrightsville Beach. The 2012 Championships were called off after a change in management at Sweetwater Surf Shop which served as a main sponsor.

The East Coast Wahine Championship, which was considered the largest women's surf event on the East Coast, called Wrightsville Beach home from 1997 until 2011. 

Divisions for the Classic include pro short board and longboard as well as amateur shortboard and longboard, novice, and stand-up paddle board and are open to ages 12 and older.
