Single Fin Classic V - A Unique Moment Inspired By Surfing

For their second consecutive collaboration, RVCA and HAWAII Donostia hit the beautiful Basque city of San Sebastian celebrating the 5th edition of the Single Fin Classic. Year after year, mixing the local scene to an international field of renowned loggers, the event has become a key stop in Europe delivering a unique vibe of surf, music & tapas. With hundreds passing by the beachfront and close to 100 competitors, the 5th Single Fin Classic stepped-up to its reputation with Europe’s most promising longboarder Jules Lepecheux (Biarritz, FRA) clinching his first major win.

« It was an amazing 5th edition of the Single fin classic. Sun, nice people, good vibes and little waves. All the ingredient to have the best LOG event. It’s always a pleasure to have such a nice mix of locals and international surfers enjoying together. Thanks to all the participants and see you next year » said Diego, the main organizer, from Hawaii Donostia.
