The Eastern Surfing Association’s 2014 Easterns® Surfing Championships at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, North Carolina concluded on Saturday with an exciting day of youth finals. The event showcased the best amateur surfers from the entire East Coast, including the Great Lakes and Alabama.
“The conditions were challenging all week with hard northeast winds, but the competitors really gave it their all,” said ESA Executive Director, Michelle Sommers. The event began with choppy conditions, but the wind lightened on Tuesday for the adult division finals. “The swell dropped a bit so the final heats were difficult for the competitors, especially with the high tide, but they all put forth an amazing effort,” says Sommers.
