East Coast Surfing Championship (ECSC) is North America’s Oldest Running Surfing Competition and the second oldest continuously-run surfing contest in the world. It’s put on every year by the VB Jaycees and a ton of volunteers and sponsors who join together to make the event a success. More than 100 of the world’s top professional surfers, male and female, and an estimated 300 amateur surfers will travel to Virginia Beach to “ride the curl” at the Oceanfront and compete for combined cash prizes of $35,000.
Held annually in Virginia Beach, Virginia since 1963, ECSC is more than just surfing. Dozens of people also take part in other competitions including skimboarding, volleyball, an oceanfront 5K run, a swimsuit competition and the extreme sport of skateboarding. Live bands perform for free on an oceanfront stage throughout the weekend. A cost is involved to participate in competitions, but all activities are free and open to the public.
