Are you a business owner who wants to support women's surfing?

We’d love to have you join us as a Wahine Classic sponsor. We absolutely could not run the Wahine without the support of our sponsors and we are so grateful for all of the Carolina Beach, Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington-based sponsors this year.

Special thanks to our 2023 staff, judges and ambassadors
