Professional Longboard Association Announces 2009 Schedule

The Professional Longboard Association have announced their 2009 surf series schedule. In its first year, the PLA held a four contest event series that saw two of those events sanctioned by the ASP, and over 30 pro men surfers per contest. In 2009, the PLA has already expanded and grown into an official qualifying series for the ASP’s Longboard division.

The PLA will run five contests, all sanctioned by the ASP, and will see both ASP Men and Women longboard professionals in attendance. Currently all events are set at one-star events, with a possible three-star event to finish off the season. Details on the championship and whether the PLA will make it a three-star event will be announced later.

2009 PLA schedule:
March 13-15: Huntington Beach, CA – 9th St
April 24-26: Ventura, CA – “C” St
June 19-21: Huntington Beach, CA – HB Pier
October 2-4: San Diego, CA – Crystal Pier (PB)
November 13-15: Oceanside, CA – Oceanside Pier

“FDt Marketing is excited to bring the PLA back for its second year at this magnitude. With the addition of three more ASP sanctioned events to the PLA calendar, alongside a PLA ASP women’s series, we feel this is a strong step in the right direction in helping build longboarding back up,” said Jeff Stoner, Executive Director of the PLA.
