Virginia Beach Surfing
Virginia Beach is home to the East Coast Surfing Championships (Aug 22-28, 2011). ECSC is a major amateur event for the United States Surfing Federation. Each year, several hundred amateurs from menehunes to masters compete for East Coast surfing titles, prizes, history and the sheer love of surfing. Other beach oriented sports and recreation include skimboarding, volleyball, a boardwalk 5K run, street skate and ramp contests, swimsuit contests, food and drink concessions, and live music on the beach.
Where to Eat
Consider making a day of it: have a relaxed, sit-down meal in air conditioning or outside table at a local Oceanfront restaurant and having a second meal or snack and drinks down at ECSC. Spread the wealth around with your patronage.
