FINAL: 2014 Hawaii Surfing Championship
The third and final leg of the 2014 noRep Boardshorts Hawaii Surfing Championship took place at Sandy Beach, Oahu this past weekend. Conditions could have not been better to wrap up a great series - light off shore winds, SSW Swell and 6 foot waves made for an epic contest.
Top surfers from Hawaii battled for the First Place and the Overall Championship.
Kekoa Cazimero claimed his home break and took First Place which led into wining the whole Hawaii Surfing Championship.

Kai Sallas won his fifth event in a row, including the first two noRep Boardshorts Hawaii Surfing Championship events and became the Champion for the Longboard Division.
