Mark your calendar now as Billabong’s 13th Annual “Cosmic Creek” presented by Subaru is coming the weekend of September 8 and 9th, 2012. Cosmic Creek is hardly just another surf contest. Instead, it is a throwback to the 1970s and a classic surf community celebration of the unique surfboards and surfing styles that made that era unforgettable…it was all about single fins and twinies while the best surfers sported super short inseams and feathered hair.
This year’s Cosmic Creek will once again feature a casual competition for all age groups. Expect local heroes, former pros, industry execs and a few of today’s top surfers including Dave Rastovich, Tyler Warren, Chris Del Morro, Rob Machado, Tom Curren and Donavon Frankenreiter. They’ve all made their mark riding the most unusual and forgotten surfboard shapes of decades past, from Ben Aipa stingers to MR twin fins, and these will be the ones on offer for the competition.
There will also be lots of art and giveaways with Creek legend Frankenreiter (who has been a staple at the event since its inception) hosting a FREE concert on the grass overlooking the beach immediately following the contest awards ceremony. “My favorite weekend of the year?” Donavon asks rhetorically. “The Cosmic Creek weekend! How can you go wrong with retro surfboards and a free concert on the beach?”
The contest is open to the public. To enter the event, download an entry form and take it signed with payment to Hobie Dana Point or Killer Dana surf shops.
