18th Annual Guy Daniels Memorial Surf-Off

August 5, 2017 • East Coast Contests

More than 100 surfers gathered in Surfside Beach, SC, on July 29th-30th for the 18th Annual Guy Daniels Memorial Surf-Off. Daniels was a local waterman who died in 1999 at 19 years of age, and the Guy Daniels Memorial Foundation awards scholarship money to local students from Horry and Georgetown Counties. As of this year, it has now awarded more than $100,000.

The foundation also works to preserve local beaches by supporting renourishment efforts. As Foundation Director Mikey Pruitt told local news channel WBTW, “I think Guy would be really happy with the way everything has turned out. Ever since he passed away, we’ve been doing this in memory of him and it’s been growing every year. We’re really appreciative to the community for all the support.” For more info, visit SurfOff.com and check out full results from this year’s contest below.
