2020 Easterns® UPDATE due to 2020 ESA Regional Event cancellations

The ESA is now looking forward to the 2020 Easterns® this fall in Nags Head, North Carolina. Despite the cancellation of our 2020 Regional events, we remain positive and hopeful that our 2020 Easterns® will be another exciting and challenging ESA surfing competition when we converge on the Outer Banks in September.

Prior to the creation of the ESA Regional qualification process, ESA competitors qualified for the Easterns® directly from their ESA District. We plan to implement a similar qualification method for the 2020 Easterns®. The general concept is described below.

Slots for the 2020 Easterns will be determined based on a competitors’ 2019 District ranking. Allocation of slots per district in each division will be determined by the January 1, 2020 membership count as is regularly done to determine slots for Regionals.

Competitors who do not qualify for a slot from their district may still apply as an alternate. Alternates may receive a slot in the event should a higher ranked competitor decide not to use their slot. Slot allocation information will be provided prior to the opening of sign-ups for the 2020 Easterns®.
