It’s almost time to crown the queen of the bay.
The first-ever all-women big-wave surf competition, ‘Queen of the Bay’, returns to Waimea Bay.
The holding period will be from October 1 to November 21.
The ‘Queen of the Bay’ contest was slated to run in 2017 but was postponed due to lack of appropriate swell.
The contest will feature the most recognizable names in women’s surfing from around the world including contestants from Australia, Brazil, France, Guatemala, Portugal, Japan, U.S. and Hawai’i based pro-surfers.
The opening ceremony will be held Thursday at Waimea Beach Park from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
