The waves cooperated yesterday and we had some knee to waist high, glassy waves up until 1 or so. Then the tide got on it and it disappeared from sight. Competitors had to strategize and use the shore-break to get there wave count!
The Pro Division had some fierce competition from the boyz, and in the end, experience won out. Tony Silvagni from Carolina Beach NC slipped by Brad Rose by .3 of a point in a split decision to win and be crowned the Champ for 2013!
Congrats to all of the winners and competitors in our event. You have made a huge contribution to the community by supporting the event with your participation.

There have been some questions about how to best enter the desired events. Below is some clarification of the contest entry fees contained on the entry form. Additionally, the contest rules are attached below.

Who is considered a Pro? Well, anyone surfing in Pro-competition is sponsored by a company, or surfboard manufacturer/surf clothing line. Tony Silvagni is a Pro, who competes worldwide. If a surf shop is sponsoring an individual and they compete on the Pro-circuit, then they are classified as a PRO! If an amatuer (example-SNC competitor) wants to give the Pro-Longboard a try, then the amatuer must pay the entry fee of $150.00 prior to May 1, for that opportunity. You can surf up in this contest/event, but not down in divisions.
Here it is in a nutshell if someone wants to enter the “All” Waterman category, you must enter SUP Surfing and SUP Ocean race in addition to the Longboard category that you qualify for:
1. Amateurs entering three events-cost is $100.00 prior to May 1.
2 Pro’s entering 3 events: $230.00 If a Pro wants to surf/SUP in all 3 events, then the Pro fee has to be added to the SUP Surfing $40.00, and SUP Ocean Race Fees $40.00. To qualify for the “All”Waterman title, you must enter all three categories.

Attached please find the results for the 1st contest of the season for ESASNC. Many of our members killed it over the weekend!!
Thanks to all the volunteers who help make it happen and many thanks to Amy Rose for her organizing the event!
We are proud to host the monthly clean-up of the beach access at Columbia Street, Access 26. We ask all of our members to occasionally go by check out the perimeter of the access, pickup trash, bottles and general garbage/rubbish to leave the area as pristine as possible.
In the future, we plan on putting a sign up to show everyone who is taking care of this beach access! We set examples to our brothers and sisters of the ocean family!
Lets do our part to keep our backyard clean and free from debris!
Attached is the letter from the Township of WB thanking our members for volunteering to maintain this access!
Good job members!!!
