Since 1967, the Eastern Surfing Association has been responsible for launching some of the most legendary surfing careers in the history of the sport.

The Eastern Surfing Association (ESA) is dedicated to the sport of amateur surfing, to the operation of a program of amateur competition for surfers of all ages and abilities, and to the establishment and preservation of free access to a clean shoreline and ocean environment. It was founded in 1967 by East Coast surfers to promote, preserve, and protect the sport of surfing on the East Coast.

Today, the ESA is the largest amateur surfing association in the world, with a current membership of over 10,000 surfers.

The 2013 Easterns Championships will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 15 and run through the following Saturday, Sept. 21 at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, NC.
