Big thanks to O’Neill, Surfline and Corey Lopez for bringing Wave of the Winter to Island Water Sports. Here is the 2018 Wave of the Winter recap.

It was an amazing night of epic waves with Pro Surfer Corey Lopez. Corey joined our staff emcees Scott and Trevor as he shared about the Wave of the Winter contest and film.

Big thanks to El Jefe Luchador for providing the grub to keep us fed and Holy Mackerel for providing the brews to keep us hydrated. Surfrider’s Broward Chapter was on site to educate those attending about how we can be better stewards of our oceans. Our surf camp instructors joined the festivities to meet and greet campers and parents who will be part of our 2018 summer surf camps in Boca Raton and Deerfield Beach.
