Sisters of the Sea Surfing Competition

Surfing for a cause, Stephanie Kim reporting.

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- The ladies ruled the waves for the 18th annual Sisters of the Sea Surf Classic.

More than 100 lady-surfers of all ages gathered Saturday morning at the Jacksonville Beach pier. The competition is unique in that only girls and women are allowed to enter.

The event raises funds to support Bosom Buddies. It's an organization that helps women and families affected by breast cancer in Jacksonville.

"It's about wave knowledge, beach improvement, and friendship, and it has just grown and grown over the years and we can't be more proud of it," said Sam Ryan with Sisters of the Sea.

"It's so cool seeing all these girls coming together just to surf. A lot of them are learning how to surf, and a lot of them have been surfing, so it's cool to see them surf for a cause," says surfer Sophie Falzone from Jacksonville.
 
Organizers say they hope to raise at least $10,000 towards the cause.
