June 14, 2017 – Kalaeloa, Hawaii – The U.S. Coast Guard claimed the “Top Branch” award for the second consecutive year at the Eleventh Annual HIC-Quiksilver All Military Surf Classic, presented by MWR Hawaii. Held this past Saturday, June 10th at White Plains Beach, on the former Barber’s Point Naval Air Base in Kalaeloa, Hawaii.

Active duty military surfers from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard battled it out in the surf for Top Branch honors as well as individual trophies and prizes. Joined by Department of Defense (DOD) employees, retirees and dependents, over one hundred and fifty individual surfers competed in five Active-Duty and ten Open divisions, which included both shortboard and longboard surfing.

Team U.S. Coast Guard once again clinched the Top Branch award.
The All Military Surf Classic is an annual highlight for Hawaii’s military surfers and the tight-knit, family oriented surf community that frequents White Plains Beach on Oahu’s south-west shore. Sunny skies, chest high waves and glassy conditions kicked off the morning, providing an ample platform for the surfers to show their moves. An occasional rain squall would blow through here and there, yet the mood remained high as competitors enjoyed a day of surf, sun, competition, and camaraderie with their fellow surfers.
