'Big Wave Challenge' Enters 3rd Year

The annual contest challenges surfers and photographers to team up to find the winter's biggest wave in the South Bay.

The South Bay Boardriders Club will once again host its South Bay Big Wave Challenge, where photographers and surfers team up to see who can ride the biggest wave in the South Bay—and document it with a photo or video, according to South Bay Events.

To be eligible for the contest, the wave must have been ridden in the South Bay between Dec. 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013. The boundaries are Indicators in Palos Verdes to the south and Dockweiler Beach to the north.

Participants must sign a waiver in person at Dive N Surf in Redondo Beach before participating in the contest, which is in its third year.

Cash and other prizes will be awarded to the winning photographer and surfer. The winners will be announced at the Hermosa Playhouse on a date to be determined in April.

Entries should be sent to:

2629 Manhattan Ave., PMB 171
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254

Last year's winning shot by Randy Ruby showed Dan Connell of Hermosa Beach riding a monster wave off the Redondo Breakwall. Matt Mohagen and Jeff Farsi won the 2011 contest with a shot of Mohagen riding a 15-foot wave at El Porto Jetty in Manhattan Beach.
