About Us

Eastern Surfing Association founded in 1967 by east coast surfers. Your membership helps the ESA keep a strong voice in the surfing community. As a national member you will enjoy local, regional, national, and international competition opportunities.

The ESA Palm Beach County District holds contests every year, beginning in the fall and finishing in January, in order to pick our team to represent Palm Beach County in ESA post-season competition at the ESA Regional Championships each spring, and the ESA Eastern Surfing Championships (“The Easterns”) on the Outer Banks of North Carolina each September. 2014 will be ESA’s 47th anniversary and we are proud of all the great surfers who have grown up surfing in ESA contests, including 11-time World Professional Surfing Champion, Kelly Slater.
