Surf Happens Presents the Second Annual Lakey Peterson Keiki Bowl

The Surf Happens Foundation will host the second annual Lakey Peterson Keiki Bowl (LPKB) at Leadbetter Point in Santa Barbara Saturday, Dec. 19, 2015.

The Keiki Bowl is a free U14 surf competition that employs a unique format where nobody loses in the first round. The event is designed to promote healthy lifestyles, goal setting practices and community, while serving as a pay it forward fundraiser for the Surf Happens Foundation. 

The LPKB also serves to promote the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation, featuring a learn to surf class for area youth surviving cancer with special pro guests.

The event also promotes the Surf Happens High Five program, which involves picking up five pieces of trash every time you go to the beach and coming up with five simple solutions to reducing pollution and personal carbon footprint.

The nonprofit arm of Surf Happens Surf School, the Surf Happens Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) that funds the LPKB along with generous local donors.

LPKB follows the Grom Surf League format: after the first round, surfers are separated into two brackets, the main event, and a reperchage division based upon heat placings. All skill levels are welcome, with push in divisions available for U8 surfers.

Registration for the event is hosted online at surfhappens.com or by email at [email protected] between Nov. 10 through Dec. 10, 2015. Space is limited with priority established on first come first serve basis.

Presented by Channel Islands Surfboards, Hurley and Surf Happens Surf School, the LPKB features amazing prize giveaways.

Contributing sponsors include Smith Optics, GoPro, Clif Bar, Scosche Audio and Sexwax. Media sponsors of the event are the Santa Barbara Independent, Deep magazine, and Surfline.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
