​Wrightsville Beach Pro Am 2017

Carolina PaddleBoard Company and the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History  host the HOBIE + SALT LIFE WB SUP Surf Pro / Am, this coming weekend, April 14 -16 2017.

Some of the most talented paddle surfers in the world will be descending on Wrightsville Beach, NC to participate in a contest that is shaping up to be a preview of the world title chase.

This East Coast event includes all aspects of SUP surfing. Competitive categories include amateurs, pros, SUP longboard, groms, masters, and a new glider division. The Pros will be competing for an $8,000.00 purse, along with cash and prizes for other divisions.

The three times women’s APP World Champ, Izzi Gomez is returning to defend her crown against a fellow ISA Gold Medalist Emmy Merrill, and local stalwart April Zilg. Returning men’s pro winner, Bullet Obra looks to defend against past winner Georgio Gomez, Caio Vaz (APP world champ), Mo Freitas, Colin McPhillips (3x wold longboard champ), and a slew of APP talent.

The forecast looks promising with expected light and variable winds, warm temps, and a two to four foot at nine second swell.
