22nd Annual Shane Dorian's Keiki Classic
This past weekend was the 22nd Annual Shane Dorian Keiki Classic held at Banyan’s on the Big Island of Hawaii. The contest had over 60 kids in both boys and girls divisions and this year Shane introduced live scoring and priority so the kids got to showcase the best of their abilities with no excuses.
The waves were going off all day with 4-6 foot faces and really consistent sets allowing everyone to get their share of waves and show the judges what they are made of. As always, Shane had a few other Hawaiian surfers over to hang out like Zeke Lau, Torrey Meister, Matt Meola and even Kelly Slater.
Overall it was another huge success and continues to be the event that all the kids look forward to the most. Shane puts so much time and effort into his event and it really shows. A special shout out to our very own Brodi Sale for taking his third Keiki Classic title in the U13 division with a great variety of airs and smooth carves. We’ll see everyone next year!
