The Deaf only contest held at the Queens break which is typically a 1 to 4 foot high mushy right popular with longboarders.
Deaf competitors will be flying in from places like Israel, Brazil, Basque, Ireland, England, Uruguay with over three-fourths of the total competitors coming from the United States, Australia and Japan.
