WHO: The best of the best from the Atlantic Surfing Federation’s many East Coast

WHAT: The 2015 ASF Championships

WHEN: October 9th-11th, 2015

WHERE: Sebastian Inlet State Park, Melbourne Beach, FL

WHY: To crown the best East Coast champions after a long season of solid ASF competition, and to build points toward qualification for the 2016 Surfing America USA Championships. Although the contest arrived at Sebastian Inlet just at the tail end of the Hurricane Joaquin swell, waves for the weekend were still solid in the two- to four-foot to occasionally bigger range, with some fine Florida fall weather on tap as icing on the cake. Big winners came from across the Rightside: South Florida (Kepa Mendia, Zoe Benedetto), Central Florida (William Hedleston, Rachel Presti, Brandon DeFilippo, Randy Nolan, Salome Aberger, Kenny Saundry, Lauren McLean, and Chauncey Robinson), North Florida (Ryan Huckabee, Chase Elmore, Travis Ajay, ), South Carolina (Emory and Leldon McClary, Adam Dills, Mako Musilenas), and North Florida (Brad Bailey).

In addition, ASF organizers led by Executive Director Phil Jackson put all the competitors’ names from the boys’ and girls’ U12 division into a bucket and picked one name to win a custom surfboard by Aaron “Gorkin” Cormican. The winner was Palm Coast, FL’s, Braeden Kopec — congratulations grom. the other big new aspect of this year’s ASF Champs was the Nub TV East Coast Legends event, which collected a slew of classic rippers with Sebastian Inlet kingpin Dave Speir emerging victorious. Other big news came from Mark Haryslak filming all of the action, Travis Ajay’s classic moves on the mic, and the announcement of a new Southeastern North Carolina chapter starting in 2016. “We are beyond stoked to bring the ASF to our North Carolina surf family,” said Phil Jackson. “The South Carolina chapter has quite a few surfers that travel from North Carolina to compete, so we wanted to have some events closer to them. “Denny Green, Mike Beech, and myself will be running the events in NC. We have some amazing friends up that way and cant wait to share the stoke with all the groms. North Carolina has some amazing talent and I can’t wait to see them at First Peak next October.”
