Good Luck at 2015 Easterns!

Best of luck to all of our Central Florida ESA competitors! Easterns is the greatest amateur surf event ever and it is only possible because of the greatness of each individual. Each competitor, each volunteer, every fan, and our devoted staff members. Cream always rises to the top and The Eastern Surfing Association has proven itself and so has it’s members, for nearly 50 years! We are all, each and every one of us, blessed to have a relationship with the ocean. With respect for our beaches and environment, we become far more than surf athletes. We are ambassadors for the living force that is the ocean, which gives life to all on Earth! Never take this role lightly, and know that we are so proud to not only have the best surf family ever, but we have an even larger impact when we carry ourselves as stewards of the beach… CFL Pride!

Go Big! Have fun! Smile a lot!

Please see the slots open, by district, for the 2015 ESA SE Regional Surfing Championships. You can compare with the CFL Standings here. Ex. If your division says 4 in the slots column, that means that the top 4 in your division from our district have a slot. That is, if they register by the cut-off (date to be announced). We strongly encourage everyone who would like to compete to go ahead and register. If you don’t have a slot, register as an alternate. If slotted competitors are not registered, the slots go to alternates and your chances of compete are greatly increased. If, for some reason, you don’t get the slot your entry will be refunded. So there’s nothing to lose with respect to fees. Please go here to register. Make sure your ESA membership is current through September 2015. This has been a rule forever and is in place to insure that all competitors competing in “post-season” events have current membership through the time Easterns runs in September. Come represent the home town as Central Florida is once again hosting the Southeast Regional Championships!

out of 112 finalists, Central Florida had 27 or 24% – awesome!

we tied for 2nd with North Florida for number of 1st place finishers at 4 a piece

Palm Beach won that title at 7 wins! Congrats to them, but look out at Easterns!!

I think it’s safe to say, Central Florida ESA has what it takes! In and out of the water! Thanks so much to everyone who made it to this year’s regionals! This is just a sample of how great the new and improved ESA can be! We are one big “stoked-out” family and we are thrilled with everyone’s achievements! A special thanks to our Regional Director Pamela Hill who coordinated operations along with our host NCFL district directors “Chilly Willy” Gilreath & “Eddie” Clement, Angelo who came all the way from NJ to set-up the main tent, ESA AllStar Coach Pat, Executive Director Michelle Sommers, all of the district directors who came to help, our esteemed judging panel (including CFL guys like Chip, Barry, & Gordon), Travis Ajay – MC Extraordinaire, Steve “Sugar” – our SUP MC aficionado from Stand Up Journal, Photographers – (Jim Dunn,  Ken Horton, Tom Warnke of PBFL and Tim Baker of East Coast Paddle), John Ross & Mark Haryslak for manning the webcam, John Brooks for hosting a fantastic Friday Surf Film Night at the beautiful Altantic Center For The Arts, my co-director (and weekend roomie) Mario DeLuca (4-10 hr days!) and wife Zoe for helping to Beach Marshall – making sure everyone got checked in and didn’t miss their heats as well as handing out the sick Regionals T-shirts to our competitors, Stretch with Hyperflex Wetsuits, Sanuk, Under Armour, Jason Meehan of Starboard, all of our National Sponsors, Clancy’s Cantina for hosting our “killer banquet”, our local dawgs representing like the utterly awesome Dustin Boshart of Sun Bum,  Sean Kinberger of Flomotion, Ron Jon Surf Shop, 27N Paddles of Juno, and the list goes on…

How cool was it that, in addition to a top-notch and well-run event, we had  a “Live Webcast”, awesome awards, Movie-Night, Computer scoring, Professional announcing and judges, a Competitor’s Banquet, top-level competitors, and the most awesome surf families in the Southeast! It’s obvious that the ESA is an organization that’s “by the surfers and for the surfers”! We are a true “grass-roots” volunteer organization that offers our competitors a fun environment to gather and compete with “like-minded” surfers! Now that we have aligned with Surfing America, our surfers not only have a pathway to the greatest amateur surf event on the East Coast, Easterns, but now you can earn a slot at the USA Surfing Championships in California. Your membership to ESA gets you membership into Surfing America, a subscription to Surfer Magazine, discounts at participating airlines, rental cars, and local surf shops! File that under “Are you kidding me?“!! What a “Bah-gain”! So let’s go! Get your friends to come out and see what they’re missing! Hope to see everyone on the beach at Contest 1 in June and remember… Right Coast – Right Now!!SB_Logo_Full_Dark
