The Eastern Surfing Association (ESA) is proud to announce its 2020 ESA All-Star Team made up of the best up-and-coming surfers along the entire Eastern seaboard and the Gulf coast of Florida.

Team members gain valuable training from world-class surf coaches, travel as a team building life-long relationships and become exposed within the surfing industry through the ESA.

The All-Star Team members hail from all over the East Coast as well as the Gulf Coast of Florida and were showcased on stage at the surf industry’s biggest trade show of the year, Surf Expo, as well as being introduced and acknowledged at the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame’s ceremony.

“The ESA All-Star Team represents some of the best amateur surfers from the organization,” said Michelle Sommers, ESA’s executive director. “They were chosen based on several factors which included their surfing achievements, sportsmanship and dedication to represent the ESA.”

While the ESA All-Star Team consists of members age 14-17, the ESA Developmental Team is for those future All-Stars who are 13 and under. Coach Jason Motes and the ESA All-Star Team Committee saw that creating the team atmosphere at the younger ages proved beneficial for better sportsmanship and skill coaching.
