The Thanksgiving Surf Classic was a tremendous success, held at Lawrencetown Beach on Sunday October 13th in 4 to 6 foot beach break with over 40 athletes competing for the title. The remains of hurricane Kyle, which was one of the longest named storms in history, generated the contestable swell with warm water and sunshine that held the entire day.

With the help of media coverage from Breakfast Television, Global News, ATV News, Q104 Radio, the Chronicle Herald Newspaper, and our own signage, the contest was a tremendous success. Drawing an estimated 350 spectators at the peck of the day. The boardwalk to the beach was lined with all our sponsors' banners along with the registration tent, which displayed all the donated prices. Our PA system allowed us to establish a strong presence on the beach, which also enabled us to announce our appreciation to all our sponsors throughout the competition.

The Canadian Surfing Association board members would like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors who helped make this event a success with over $4000 in donated prices. As well, we would like to thank all the volunteers who help make this event run smoothly. We have included the results of the event and a series of photos that were taken throughout the day that clearly show the true success of this event in the eyes of the competitors. We look forward to everyone's support next year and we value any feed back that will help us make next years event even better.

Sincerely
CSA Board Members
