The Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championships presented by Vans is a major professional and amateur event for the United States Surfing Federation. Each year, several hundred surfers 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 volleyball, a boardwalk 5K run, street skate and ramp contests, swimsuit contests, food and drink concessions, and live music on the beach.
The original event started in Long Island, New York in 1961. But the Virginia Beach Jaycees started East Coast Surfing Championships on the shores of Virginia Beach in 1963, making it the second-longest, continuously-run surfing contest in the world!
