The JBay Loggers Classic is a true “hey shoo wa, like, chill, bru,” event, with participants sauntering into the water and gliding into waves on massive single finned wooden boards. It’s a throwback event that serves as reminder of the origin of the amazing sport of surfing.

The air is thick with hang tens, suntan oil and smiles.
