The Queen of the Peak is an annual all Women’s Surf Contest created by Surf Sister and Shelter Restaurant. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors the contest has grown into a two-day event held every October. This year our presenting sponsors are once again Billabong and the Wickaninnish Inn.
The contest was created to showcase and celebrate the amazing female surf talent present here on the west coast. Contest organizers have focused efforts on designing the contest to be ‘female-friendly’ with free child care and dog sitting services for competitors and even has a massage tent that is complimentary for competitors.
Competitors vie for cash and prizes in both longboard and shortboard categories. New to this years contest is the added division of the “Princess of the Peak” for grommets ages 16 and under sponsored by Billie Girls by Billabong. In addition this year a “Masters” division for women 40yeas and up will be added. The masters competition will be a contest where competitors collectively work to catch as many waves as possible and for every successful wave rode a donation will be made to the Keep A Breast Foundation.
Included in the entry fee for longboard and shortboard contestants is a wine and cheese welcome reception at Surf Sister and an awards gala multi-course dinner at Shelter Restaurant. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Keep a Breast Canada, who’s mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support.
