21st Annual Folly Beach Wahine Classic

July 29,2023

Washout Surf Spot at 1550 E Ashley Ave, Folly Beach


The highly anticipated annual women’s surf contest, the Folly Beach Wahine Classic, returns for its 21st year on Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th. The Folly Beach Wahine Classic is a non-profit organization with a mission of empowering women of all ages and skill-levels, and benefitting Charleston Surfrider, Waves 4 Women, and other local ocean-based non-profits.

Hosted annually for over two decades at the iconic and historic Folly Beach surf destination, the Washout, “wahines” (women surfers) travel from near and far to compete at the nationally recognized all-girls surf contest. Locals have shown love and support every year for the non-profit event. You can donate at to help them put on the best surf contest yet. Spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer on our wahines!

Each year, the Folly Beach Wahine Classic strives to make the event a plastic-free, low-waste event. For the first time in 21 years, they are taking it one step further by hosting a sustainability giveaway with the Charleston chapter of the Surfrider Foundation! All participants who bring their reusable items like water bottles will be entered to win a fun, environmentally friendly prize.
