About the Event

Just to let you know, we are ​rebooting​ this legendary East Coast event that I’ve had the honor to win. Now, the surfing world has changed, and we want to go back and recharge our historical event. What I see happening is honoring our heritage, roots and soul of East Coast surfing. The event will include a men’s and women’s open, as well as a menehune classic. All revolving around ​style​, it doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s cool and with a natural flow. The contest also will be judged by surfers that recognize how hard it is to surf small, East Coast waves and can give their honest opinions on what you have to show. Surfing is the hardest sport in the world to get wired and that’s why everybody wants to be us. Please give us a chance to work with you, and our surf community, to make the Easter Surf Contest what it used to be, and something that we could all be proud of once again. Though this event is a contest, it is all about the roots of surfing. We want to keep the connection of our community and the water pure, so come be a part of this awesome event.

Easter Surf Contest Judging Format

1) The Turn: We know from the instant you take off how rad you are, how cool you are going to be. Attitude starts immediately paddling into the wave. Your turn is one of the most important intros to who you are 

2) In Trim: the heart of the wave, what you do in trim, how fast you go, really shows what kind of surfer you are. Whether you cut back into the tube, bounce off the lip, or go for more speed on the turns

3) Riding The Wave: how long of a ride and what you do on that ride, --To reiterate 1-3 when you work all if it together you have the perfect flow, that is what you'll be judged on,. Style. To go with the flow. You’re a winner. Simple

As a total surfer, I’m so stoked for the re-boot of the Easter Surf Contest. Lori Wilson park is the ULTIMATE site for what I know is going to be the party of the year - no question about it! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Wow! The cool factor and the bar is set really high. The park speaks for itself. It’s a total surf area with sprawling sea grapes and walkways to the beach with shaded areas for all our little tasty treats. Expect to find food trucks, vendors, sun and surf surf surf! There will be an Easter egg hunt on Sunday as well as exhibitions that include kiteboarding and Jetson Jet Surf Technology. You won’t want to miss (for sure, I know for me) the “must see” East Coast Dog Surfing championships! OMG, how much fun! This, for sure, is a family fun occasion. Join us later Saturday evening for Live concert in the Park “Surf Stomp” hosted by Selector Longenecker and friends.

See you all at the beach. 

Much Aloha. Gary Propper (In Memory of Gary Propper)
