  • subtitle: Sideline Action At Atlantic Surfing Federation Championships Serves As Perfect Prelude To Hurricane Sandy

Written by  Nick McGregor

Before the inaugural Atlantic Surfing Federation Championships visited Sebastian Inlet earlier this month, a proper regional event hadn’t been held at this iconic East Coast surf spot in nearly a year. Which means ESM’s tag team of photographers — co-owners Tom Dugan and Dick “Mez” Meseroll and Photo Editor Nate Adams — were frothing over the collection of talent on hand from October 12th-14th.

Speaking of froth, that weekend’s chunky windswell serves as a great preview of what the East Coast will probably be dealing with next week, Tropical Storm Sandy meanders her way north. Some forecasts show Sandy taking an ideal north/northeast turn into the Atlantic, while others show her hewing closer to the Right Coast. What will that mean? Big, powerful waves; strong, gusty winds; and challenging, victory-at-sea conditions — exactly what the groms and grown-ups battled at Sebastian Inlet two weeks ago.

So enjoy this collection of freesurf shots from the ASF Championships — and get your guns waxed for Sandy next week.
