Clean Water Classic surfing contest adds Standup

Buenos Dias'! I have news from the Clean Water Classic organizers this morning. Upon my urging they have added a SUSP demonstration heat at this years CWC. The dates I have been able to find out about this contest are May 16 - 18 in Westport, Washington. I do not know what day the demonstration SUSP heat is as of yet. I am planning to go as they have a Masters Long Board Division. Westport is on the SW - Central part of the Washington Coast and has a beach break just to the south of the jetty leading into the port. Breaks very much like South Beach in Newport. It is about a 5 1/2 - 6 hour drive and every year I have been to the contest it has been foggy with rain. Waves have been overhead to waist high for the contest. The really good news is the water is about 10 - 15 degrees warmer than the Oregon Coast so a 3/2 is perfect and no booties or gloves! They have a few campgrounds in the port which is pretty much like camping in a parkling lot - all gravel, no trees and one bathroom/shower/laundry complex and there is one up scale campground that is like a leisure world. There is no camping at the contest site and you have to drive into it. Any how, I'll keep you all posted!
