The Folly Beach Wahine Classic will be held this weekend (June 2 & 3) at the Washout on, where else?, Folly Beach, of course. This is truly a contest where the fun is contagious. If you haven't signed up yet, you may be out of luck! The entry deadline has passed, but if there happens to be room in one of your division's heats, you might get lucky and sneak in.
Whether you're competing or not, you don't want to miss this event. Drop by and visit us under the McKevlin's tent. Many of our surf team members (Sylvia Windham, Kristin Tanner, Kate Barattini, Hampden Thomas) will be attending as well as a few of our shop staff (Perng Hutson, Megan Coker, Heather Wall). To read more about these ladies, go: HERE.
And, on your way to the Washout, be sure to drop by the shop to enter the 2018 D.J. McKevlin Gromfest. That contest's for 18 and under only and is set for July 7 & 8.
The Southern South Carolina district of the ESA held their second contest of the year on May 19, 2018 at the Washout on Folly Beach. This contest was held in better-than-usual contest waves and less than perfect weather conditions! Great for competitors/not so nice for everyone else. McKevlin's Surf Team posted 4 competitors. Sylvia Windham took home the 1st place trophy in Girls U-16 shortboard and in Jr. Women U-18 shortboard. She also scored a 2nd place in Jr. Women longboard. Hampden Thomas managed a 4th in Jr. Women U-18 and a 3rd in Jr. Women Longboard. Also, Kristin Tanner won the Women's division.
Representing the male side of the team, Griffin Jackson took 2nd place in Boys shortboard U-16, a 4th in Jr. Men U-18, and a 4th in Jr. Men Longboard.
The next contest scheduled is the Folly Beach Wahine Classic on June 2 and 3.
