HONOLULU - This year's Longboard World Championship, the OXBOW Wave Sliders, will take place at Makaha Beach on Oahu, Hawaii from October 29 to November 7, 2010.
The current selection of riders is impressive: the best longboarders worldwide will gather upon this famous surf spot in hopes of landing the coveted title of ASP World Longboard Champion. The Australian titleholder, Harley Ingleby, will indeed be challenged this year. The local Hawaiian heroes, Bonga Perkins and Duane DeSoto, will put all their strength into the competition in order to win the title in their home waters in front of the Hawaiian audience. The best European longboarders, Antoine Delpero and Ben Skinner, will put their heart and soul into challenging the eclectic group of talented Hawaiian, Californian and Brazilian athletes.  
The competitors should also have a careful eye on Colin McPhilips, the skilled and routined triple World Longboard Champion.  


Hawaii participants include Bonga Perkins,Kai Sallas, Ned Snow, Duane Desoto, Keegan Edwards, Rusty Keaulana, Nelson Ahina and Kekoa Auwae. One more seat will be available for the winner of the local trials.
This year's competitors will surely leave us breathless!

In addition to the main longboard challenge, the OXBOW Wave Sliders will include free ride SUP, Alaia and surfing sessions organized to highlight the rider's multi-faceted watermen skills: true to the belief that "there is no wrong way to ride waves!" (Laird Hamilton).

Aloha, Oxbow World Longboard Championship was held in 1-2ft. waves with high surf warning issued. Waves came up as the Aussies/Spainard surfers doing really well. Local surfers did as expected, they dominated threw-out the day as surf increased to 4-6ft. high performance waves all day. Three locals and one forigen battled to the finals. With Kekoa Uemura coming out victorious. He's a goofy-foot surfer with strong moves creating big slashes on the cut-backs. Kekoa advanced to the main events. Today was postponed due to wash-out on the inside and strong currents due to 10ft. Point surf.
