The 56th annual Brooks Street Surfing Classic will open its waiting period on Aug. 6.

Brooks Street was first held in 1955 and could be argued as being one of the world’s longest-running surf contests.

“Its been a great south swell season so far and hopefully it continues long and strong from this point on so we can get the contest back in the water after a two-year hiatus,” contest director Brandy Faber wrote in an email.

The event is open to Laguna Beach residents and could happen if enough contestable surf is available on a weekend. The waiting period runs to November.
