Super day for the Menehunes at WindanSea Surf Club’s 27th annual youth surf contest in La Jolla


Super surf and a bumper crop of Super Menehune contestants were the order of the day at the WindanSea Surf Club’s 27th annual Menehune and Junior Surf Contest (for boys and girls ages 4-16) held Oct. 6 at La Jolla Shores. Surf conditions were pumping for most of day and there was lots of action both in and out of the water. This year, spectators were treated to the exploits of a record number of contestants in the Super Menehune division for surfers 7 years and under. Top honors went to Hannah Yates of San Marcos, a double winner in girls long- and short-board; Noah Brown of La Jolla on short-board; and Sawyer Roenfeldt of San Diego on long-board. The Club wishes to thank all the participants, their families, volunteers and sponsors for keeping the Menehune Contest tradition alive since 1965. Learn more:
