They can all hang-10, but several Newport-Mesa residents will find out today if they can hang with the big boys.
Newport Beach is hosting the third annual Quiksilver Surf Shop Challenge, today and Friday at 54th Street, and local surf shops Surfside Sports and Main Street Surf Shop are both fielding teams.
Teams may compete with two shop employees and two surfing professionals.
Competing for Surfside are employees Nick Skawinski and Brent Bearden, along with team riders Adam Popp and Geoff Moysa.
Competing for Main Street are J. Richie Rollins, Ardemus Gregurek, pro surfer Cordell Miller and Reagan Riley.
"I've never done the contest before, but it should be pretty exciting," said Surfside's Skawinski, who said he surfs everyday himself. "I heard some other teams are going to be pretty strong as well. We've got some good competition coming in."
