#2 In the Books

Great weather, good waves, surfers shredding, family and friends, it doesn’t get much better than that for a successful contest. One downfall…our P.A. System was being repaired and our backup failed us.  There were a couple of hiccups with the timers, other than that we had a smooth running contest.  

A huge thank you to all of the judges and volunteers that helped out throughout the day we couldn’t do it without you all.  Many people come together to pull off every contest and it shows by the compliments we receive.  We would like to welcome our newest members in Girls U14 Danielle Baugh and Emily Chester!

#1 In the Books

Sorry for the delay in posting, we are running a bit in SloMo it seems this season so here you go:

What a great turnout we had for Contest #1 on May 16, 2015.  Fun was had by all.  We even did a combo event with SurfQuest for the 2nd half of the day. Enormous props to everyone that helped out with the disabled surfers.  They are having their next contest on June 13th if you are available to share in the surf stoke! Visit their website for more info http://www.arcsj.org/surfquest.html

*We had a some confusion with members surfing the wrong divisions during this contest. Youth Divisions are allowed to surf up, Adult divisions are not allowed to surf up. Please be sure of your division and sign up for the proper one during each contest. You will not get points for incorrect divisions surfed. Here is a link to explain age divisions:

We had a record new member sign up on the beach of 10 people. Please join me in welcoming our new members!

2015 Season Begins

May 16th is Contest #1 of the 2015 season.  Mary Street Ramp 8am registration on the beach or you can print the form from the website and mail in your entries. We also have online Registration and Payment available through the website and Facebook. Tell your friends and have them come as well. We also still have the hotline phone #904-824-0131 check it for updates.

We are very excited to announce that ARC Surf Quest is going to be joining us for the afternoon from 1pm to 4pm.  Volunteers are appreciated to help out the surfers with disabilities.  We went last month and participated and to say it is rewarding is an understatement.  You will be smiling all day when you see how happy they are to be able to get in the water and surf.

SurfQuest

Surf Quest was created by former professional surfer Pete Skoglund in cooperation with The Arc of the St. Johns in St. Augustine, Florida. Over the years Pete has seen a void that needed to be filled as, many men, women and children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities were missing the opportunity to enjoy the ocean and connect to a caring and sharing community of avid surfers. program is a free monthly event with trained volunteers who introduce adaptive aquatic recreation using specialized surfboards and flotation devices for anyone with a disability. All ages and abilities are welcome. This program allows family and friends to participate in outdoor recreation as ohana (family).

COMMUNITY INCLUSION ~ BUILDING SELF ESTEEM ~ NEW SOCIAL NETWORK ~ NEW FRIENDS

– Surf Quest empowers people with disabilities by providing adaptive surfing instruction and therapeutic educational programs on water recreation, and enriches lives by assisting families to access the beach and ocean together in a barrier free environment.

– Surf Quest will act as an advocate for accessibility to the water that will allow people with limited mobility to reach the beach (i.e. wheelchairs, assisted devices, strollers, etc.).

– Surf Quest will provide adaptive equipment with educational programs for the advancement of adaptive surfing.

– Surf Quest will develop partnerships to expand the awareness of safe adaptive aquatic recreation.

Pete’s vision quickly extended to all levels of disabilities, including those men and women returning from military engagements overseas. Surf Quest is a total volunteer program supported by kindred and caring business and individuals as presenting, equipment and event sponsors.

Don’t forget to send in your surfer profiles if you want them posted online.

 

If you didn’t receive an email from us last week let us know and we will add you to our  email list.  We also are going to be sending text alerts with contest info so if you would like to receive them then get your cell phone number to us as well.

Paradise Beach Park, Melbourne Beach, Florida

Below are the links to the St. Augustine ESA Final Season Points. Please look for your name and see what your final ranking in your division(s) while viewing the “Invitation Matrix”. Find your division and see how many slots are allocated for our St. Augustine District. If your placing for the season is within that number you have an invitation. If your placing is not in that number you can still sign up as an alternate. ESA will place all of the paid seeded entries and then expand the event to bring in as many alternates as possible. So if you qualified congratulations! If you did not, don’t worry sign up as an alternate. You have a great chance of getting a final seed once the divisions are expanded to included alternate seeds. This takes quite a bit of work so the earlier you sign-up the better chance of getting a slot. Slots are based on seedings throughout the year. You must surf at least two contests. This however only allows you the chance to qualify. The seeding is based on the total points throughout the entire 2014 season.

*****Please remember your memberships must be current through September 30, 2015. ***** A lot of memberships expire so make sure to get on-line and register for the new 2015 Season if your membership expires prior to 9/30/2015. While signing up for the contest and the new membership…pay close attention to the new revised age divisions starting this new 2015 Season. You can now surf up in age. I recommend surfing up at least extra division. Try to keep your primary division your number one goal however. Surfing in three or more divisions can be taxing during an event and may lead to a performance in your primary division that is a little less than you would have liked.

The cutoff date for Entries is March 9, 2015.
Any entries received after that date will be a late paid alternate
