This is the last DMV ESA qualifying event for the 2018 Regionals, Surfing America Prime and 2018 ESA All-Star Team! New members are encouraged! 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 $25 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. **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 8am and hand out awards no later than 4pm. 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.
