Another Folly Beach Wahine Classic is in our rear view mirror. This year's event, like its predecessors, was filled with smiles, fun, sun, and . . . small waves.
The all-women event was held at the Washout, Folly Beach on June 2 & 3. The McKevlin's Crew was out in full force and scored several impressive victories:
Hampen Thomas captured 3rd in Girls Longboard, Sylvia Windham took 2nd in Girls Shortboard, and Kristin Tanner posted a 6th in Womens Longboard, a 4th in Womens Shortboard, and was awarded the Hottest Longboard Ride with an 8.1 out of 10 score!
Meanwhile, Perng Hutson, the shop's assistant manager, and Kate Barattini, our ambassador of stoke management, went home with the most hardware! Perng received 4th in Ladies Shortboard, 2nd in Ladies Longboard, and a 3rd in Pro Longboard, giving her a $300 check. Kate Barattini won the Pro Longboard division (and a $1,000 check) and took home 3rd place in Womens Shortboard and 1st in Womens Longboard.
This contest always draws competitors from all over - not just little South Carolina. Thanks to Co-Directors, Liz Chirles and Patti Dawson as well as all the hard-working judges, tabulators, volunteers, contestants, and sponsors. We're already looking ahead to the 2019 Classic!
