BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

LEAVING FOR VACATION A COUPLE DAYS AFTER A CONTEST PUT US WAY BEHIND ON THIS POST OF THE 4TH OF JULY 50TH ANNUAL SUN N’ SURF CONTEST IN MEMORY OF BILL MURRAY. SO SORRY FOR THE DELAY.

St. Augustine Beach Pier was the location for the 50th Annual Sun n’ Surf 4th of July Surf Contest, hosted by ESA-St. Augustine District (ESA-SAFL). At first light the ocean was once again awarding our members with some fun offshore waist high southerly swell waves for the start of the contest. The first division and heats of the morning were the Men’s Open shortboard and this division impressed from the start. Being the largest division of the district the competitors took advantage of the incoming high tide push and showed those in attendance the high performance realm of small wave surfing. Boys U12, U14, U16, and U18 divisions had some of the closest battles all season and once again showed the level and rise of talent our district holds. Not to be out done were the Girls U14, U16, and U18. Although the tides and winds changed the conditions for the start of their divisions, the girls were ready to surf and not a wave went by unridden. The girls were absolutely frothing.

Being that this year marks the 50th anniversary of this well known event, the locals came out and showed their support of the event and shared a lot of history from years past to our new members as well as all the people on the beach this year. The founders of the Sun n’ Surf Shop, The Bernstein brothers’ Mark and Gary were in attendance, as well as Tory Strange, Mark Bailey, Charlie Quick, Lynn Harrington, David Bradfield, Terry Drozd, Craig Davis and a lot of other past contestants that remember the early days of the event and how far it has come since the start.

Longboards during the summer months are the norm due to the small surf during the summer doldrums. The Sun n’ Surf 4th of July contest is no exception and the contestants came out strong looking to make claim of their respective division(s). The longboard divisions showcased both a new school and old school approach. Huge props go out to our local legends that surfed in the event as they have since the beginning. Mr. Burgess Autrey and Mr. Joe Beach. Well done gentleman. Inspiring!

Well that is a wrap on another Sun n’ Surf 4th of July Surf Contest. Thanks to all the competitors and parents that were able to attend. Big thanks to our volunteers for all your hard work both setting up the event, cooking, tabulating, t-shirt handouts, judging, and breaking down. We know who you are and couldn’t do it all without you.

Congrats to all of the finalist.
