A retro poster ad for the 1982 Katin Pro/Am surf contest. #tbt

The annual PRO/AM, started in 1977 by Nancy Katin herself, held at the Huntington Beach Pier not only featured some of the world’s best surfers, but also provided an arena for the young, talented surfers from beaches all across the U.S. to compete alongside their heroes.

 Champion surfers such as Shaun Tomson, Tom Curren, Martin Potter, Sunny Garcia and Kelly Slater have gone on to win the PRO/AM.
