Event: The Rogue Gathering, Newport, Oregon Sept. 6th & 7, 2008

(Click Here for RESULTS for the 6th Annual Rogue Gathering Surf Contest)

Surfing and beer (in that order) are a natural combo. And in the Pacific Northwest, the land of great beer, it's only natural that a brewery would sponsor a surf contest. If you're a fan of either, we recommend you show up for the Rogue Gathering surf contest sponsored by the Rogue Brewery in Newport, Oregon. Even if you're not a surfer, the beach scene is fun, and the Rogue Brewery will be on the beach serving refreshments and food.

Randall Barna and Peter Miller entered last year (2007), the first year for a Standup Paddle class. Peter is holding up 2 trophies because he's an awesome guy and entered (and won) in both the Longboard and SUP classes. The weekend was sunny and in the 80's (not always the case)! Hope to see you there!!
