We want to say good luck to the 3 people from the NY ESA District who have invitations to attend the Surfing America series best out of 3. For information please see the following web-site:
Jared Bono- Allstars for Boys
Selen Moberley- Allstars for Jr. woman
Miller Overbeck- Winner of the Girls divison at the NE Regionals
You ask…How do I get there???? Well see below:
1.) You must be a member of the ESA and the membership must be current. It must have the divisions you will be competing in signed up on your membership to be eligible.The more members the more slots we get for the next level.
2.) You must compete in at least half the contests.
3.) Our head tabulator gathers all your points at the end of the season and you are ranked in the NY district.
4.) You get an invitation to the NE regionals which can be held anywhere from NJ to NH. 2014 is NJ and possibly 2015 is NY, yes NY. We get the invitations based on the highest scores and the slots allotted per district to enter. The more members the more the slots.
For this year they took the NE regional points along with the NY points to get the invitations for the Surfing America Series.
5.) From the NE Regionals you can go to the Easterns, held in NC every year about the 3rd week in September.
6.) Your rankings from the combination can get you a slot to the East Coast Prime with Surfing America.
7.) Qualify from the Prime and you go to the grand finale. Again check their web-site located at the top.
So will you be there next year????
This is the ESA, and in the rules, you cannot surf up in any division. You have to stay in your age group. If you do the points do not count because you also have to have it assigned to your membership when becoming a member.
Also the rules of competition are posted on the web-site at www.surfesa.org for your viewing pleasure………
Keep posted as more e-mails are to come and the web-site will be updated accordingly…
