CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – The UNCW Surf Club is bringing back a classic -- the Cape Fear Surf Fest.

The Cape Fear Surf Fest is a weekend long event aimed to bring together area surfers for a friendly competition.

The event will have a unique twist with the addition of Surf Shop Team and Open Team divisions.

Teams competing in the Surf Shop Team division will be made up of four surfers and must include a surfer over the age of 30, a surfer under the age of 16 and two others of their choice, who are on the current shop team.

Teams competing in the Open Team division can be made up of any four members.

There is only space for 12 Surf Shop teams and 10 Open teams.

Other event divisions will include: Open Shortboard Pro, Single Fin Longboard Pro, Women's Open Longboard, and Women's Open Shortboard. The Pro divisions will have cash prize purses for the finalists.

The Cape Fear Surf Fest is scheduled for March 22 and 23. Slots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
