Island Strong was born from the spirit and pride of the community that is Long Island. The brand started simply with a logo, a few stickers, and the idea to introduce each of us with our local communities, small neighborhood businesses, and one another. Fast forward a few short years and Island Strong has grown to over 28 THOUSAND Instagram followers that strive to stay connected, support local businesses, showcase artists, give back to charities, provide volunteering opportunities, and offer super unique happenings such as their upcoming L.I. Adventure Hunt @liadventurehunt
We thank Terrance, the founder of Island Strong, for his unwavering dedication towards everything Long Island and sponsoring ESA NY for the last three years!
Please visit Island Strong at their brand new location:

** Contest 18ESANY #1 will begin Saturday, 12-May around 9am **
Gilgo Beach, Babylon NY
Online registration: ny.surfsignup.com
Application entry deadline: Tuesday, May 8 – 11:59pm
PER TOWN OF BABYLON: ABSOLUTELY NO VEHICLES ON THE BEACH FOR THIS CONTEST!
** THAT MEANS DO NOT DRIVE ON THE BEACH AT ANY POINT FOR ANY REASON **
VEHICLES ON THE BEACH WILL PREVENT ESANY FROM OBTAINING FUTURE PERMITS AT THIS BEACH
We plan to setup very close to the tunnel so no one will need to carry surfboards, backpacks, chairs, etc very far.
Since this contest tends to be a bit modest in terms of attendance, we will combine heats (that means IF two different age groups only have one or two competitors signed up each, we will offer to surf them all together). We absolutely make intentional, educated decisions on what competitors to combine based on age and skill levels. : )
… and since everyone asks about points when heats are combined… Points are awarded for seeding purposes and will be distributed based on the division the competitor is signed up for. In short, if two divisions were combined into one heat for a contest, points will be awarded as though the surfers surfed separately.
