ABOUT ESA

ESA is the largest amateur surfing association in the world. Our family oriented programs promote a healthy and active lifestyle. It is not uncommon to find two or three generations of the same family involved as members of the ESA, and actively competing in our program. Two of the original founders of the ESA, Cecil Lear and David Reese, are still active in the association more than fifty years later.

The Association’s activities are organized into a total of twenty-four districts, which extend along nearly 2,000 miles of coastline. Stretching from Maine through the Gulf Coast of Florida, and the Great Lakes, each district’s programs are developed and operated by a dedicated group of volunteer directors and staff.

QUICK FACTS

Eleven time world professional surfing champion Kelly Slater and former world professional womens surfing champion Lisa Anderson both learned their competitive skills through the Eastern Surfing Association.
