ESA’s 2020 Southeast Regional Championships presented by Florida Space Coast Office of Tourism & Surfer Dudes

April 16-18

Melbourne Beach, Florida
The Eastern Surfing Association Board of Directors regretfully announces that they have cancelled all three ESA Regional Surfing Championship events for 2020.

Due to various reopening phases along the East Coast, it is highly unlikely that all three events will be completed in a timely manner prior to the the start of each location’s summer season.

The ESA strives for transparency and fairness for its competitors.  If one regional event cannot be held, it is unfair for all competitors to run the others in order to qualify for ESA’s 2020 Easterns® Surfing Championship to be held September 20-26 at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, North Carolina.

The ESA is excited to announce that its 2020 Easterns® will be a larger event in order to include more competitors.  Details about the 2020 Easterns® qualification process is now posted on the ESA’s website.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our local district events this summer!
