Sage Island proudly sponsors the East Coast Wahine Championships

by Vicki Vasil

This year the Wahine Championships – the largest women’s surf event on the east coast, held annually in Wrightsville Beach – teamed up with Sweetwater Surf Shop, and moved the event to Columbia (“C”) Street for a weekend of unbelievable surfing in 12 categories, ranging from grom to goddess.

Beautiful weather, good surf, a big crowd and great camaraderie between the ladies made for a hugely successful event, and will surely pave the way for more growth in the future. We’d like to congratulate all who participated, Sweetwater Surf Shop whose staff helped direct the event, and the Wrightsville Beach community for showing so much support. Sage Island is a proud sponsor of the event, and of women’s surfing.
