2011 North Shore Challenge Surf Race



Above photo is Zane Schweitzer throwing up a winning hand sign after he clinches the win. I was sick, hurt ribs and on antibiotics but I made the drive to this race and was happy in my decision. The race was held at the Turtle Bay Resort which is a little over an hour drive each way from my house. In Hawaii, we contemplate driving anywhere over 15 minutes. To drive an hour, it’s gotta be special.

A number of the sponsors of this site were going to this race so I didn’t want to miss it and I just got some new camera equipment and wanted to test it out. Turtle Bay turned out to be an ideal place to hold a surfing spectator event. The racers were close, waves were good and everything was within easy range of my camera. Check out the slideshow video below for pictures of the event.
