This is the first DMV ESA qualifying event for the 2018 Regionals, Prime and 2018 ESA All-Star Team! New members are encouraged!
This event is sponsored by CHAUNCEY'S SURF SHOP at 30th St. and Chauncey's Surf O Rama at 54th St in Ocean City, and the folks at Chauncey's are awesome and super supportive of DMV ESA! Trophies all divisions, t-shirts for all competitors and some cool give-aways!
ESA contests are a great way to improve your surfing skills, no matter what your skill level is! A current ESA membership is required before you can surf your heat.
All competitors are highly encouraged to enter online through this website by the deadline. Late entries will incur a $15 late fee. Beach entries are highly discouraged. Beach entries will incur the late fee and will only be taken to fill available slots. No new heats will be added the day of the contest! The schedule of heats will be posted the morning of the contest.
Depending on number of competitors we may double beach early in the day. **Schedule is always subject to change.** ESA Summer Surf Series is an all Volunteer event. We want to bring everyone the most fun, most efficient surf contest we can, so we hope to start no later than 7:30 or 8am and hand out awards no later than 4pm (hopefully MUCH earlier!) You can help! Experienced competitors are encouraged to judge some heats, or help tabulate. Ask the ESA top athletes - they will tell you this is the BEST way to improve your surfing skills!
Bring sunscreen, plenty of wax, water, snacks and clothing appropriate for the weather conditions the day of the contest. Stay warm and stay hydrated. Need wax, a rash guard, a wetsuit, a new board?? Run up to Chauncey's Surf Shop on 30th & Coastal Highway for all your surf needs!
Support the nearby Beach Stand and rent a chair or umbrella for the day! Support the nearby eating establishments, like Mother's Cantina on 28th St., Barn 34 at 34th St., or Shotti's on 35th St. too! Support our local businesses, thanks!
