East Coast Surfing Championships 2017

The 55th Annual East Coast Surfing Championships took place last week in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It is the longest continually running surfing competition in North America and the second longest in the world.

I’ve been attending the competition off and on since high school back in the 1980’s. Some years, the waves cooperate. Some years, the waves never show up.
While there were waves this year, the winds were blowing out of the East causing a lot of chop in the water. Still, the surfers put on a great show.

I showed up Sunday morning for the Vans Pro Junior final, the Bobby Holland Memorial Pro Longboard final, and the Vans Pro final. Here are some of the images I captured. If you are interested in purchasing any of these, just click on the image and it will take you to my gallery.
