The World Skin Cancer Foundation, Ocean Potion Sun Care Products, and Bright House Networks are preparing for their 4th Annual Fall Classic.

The Fall Classic begins with the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) National Surfing Championships.

This two-day event takes place on October 31st and November 1st behind Coconuts on Beach in Cocoa Beach, FL.

The World Skin Cancer Foundation's Slater Brother's Invitational surf contest is scheduled for November 6th through the 8th, behind Coconuts, on Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Come out and watch a talented field of world-class surfers, including CJ and Damien Hobgood, Rob Machado, Shea Lopez, and nine-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater.

The WSCF's Slater Brother's Invitational is proud to announce their newest hometown hero, world-renowned skateboarder, Adam Taylor, will be joining the mix.

Watch Adam and other skateboarding pros tear it up on the mini-vert ramp situated right on the beach.

Free Skin Cancer Screenings

The weekend of parties kicks off Thursday, November 5th, at Rusty's at the Port with a street party, including live music.

Enjoy the contest the next morning, but be ready to have a good time Friday night when the Bon Fire party heats up at Coconut's on the Beach with the great music of national recording artist G-Love.

Saturday will be another day of world-class surfing and skateboarding, but Saturday night belongs to the Pirates Ball Costume Party and Silent Auction at Coconuts on the Beach.

All types of costumes are welcome.

On Saturday, November 7th, dermatologists will be providing free skin cancer screenings inside of Coconuts on the Beach.

All of our past screenings have been extremely successful, and many lives have been saved.

"It's great to be able to create outdoor events like these for people to enjoy while raising awareness and increasing education on the deadly disease of skin cancer," commented Drew Filliben, President of the World Skin Cancer Foundation.

"We don't want people to stop enjoying the outdoors. We want them to understand how to take precautions to help minimize the dangerous effects of UV light."
