The 11th Annual Jupiter Fall Classic Pro Surf Contest comes to Juno Beach Pier

Juno Beach, Fla. - The Jupiter Fall classic is coming to the Juno Beach Pier this weekend, November 18-20 th.  In its 11 th year, it is the longest running surfing event in south Florida.  The event has been previously held at Carlin Park in Jupiter, but this year will move down to the Juno Beach Pier.  It's a higher quality and more contestable wave, which will prove for quite a show in the water from all the surfers.  This event is also the final event in the Western Atlantic Surf Series , and a champion will be crowned for that.

Previous years have had great turnouts and a record crowd is expected this year at the pier.  There will be plenty of sponsor tents, a kids surf clinic. The main sponsor, Guanabanas restaurant and Kona Brewing Company, will have a food and beer garden open each afternoon.

The event kicks off Thursday night with a Luau Party at the Jupiter Beach Resort.  A big bash is also planned at Guanabanas Friday night with surfing legend Tom Curren and local surfer/musician William Kimball playing their tunes on stage.

Pro surfing kicks off at 8am Friday (depending on surf conditions) and runs throughout the day. Saturday and Sunday heats will start at 7am.

There's even rumors legendary pro surfer Tom Curren will compete in the Ocean Magic Masters Pro division.

The surf forecast is looking good for the contest.  Swell should pick up Friday as a cold front moves through and wind picks up out of the ENE.  It'll be choppy and onshore but decent size chest-head high waves, and the nice break at the pier should make it highly contestable for all divisions.  The swell will build Friday, peak Saturday and start to taper off Sunday.  Click for the complete forecast.

The contest will continue to grow and next year there's hopes of a music festival, arts and crafts, food and beverage, games for kids etc.

The Fall Classic will have the following divisions :
The WAPSS Mens Pro
The DNA Energy Pro Jr.(under 19)
The Ocean Magic Masters Pro(35 and over)
The Sik Chix Womens Pro
The Square Grouper Longboard Pro
Entries are limitted for all divisions , so get your entry in today.
