Many past and present New Jersey surfing legends will be on hand. During this time, the NJSHOF will honor New Jersey’s surfboard shaping community with an interactive exhibit featuring both current shapers as well as some of the legendary shapers from our past. Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served. At 9:00 PM, the induction ceremony will take place in The Flanders Hotel & Business Center’s Main Hall. The NJSHOF is honored to announce legendary surfer and 1977 IPS World Champion Peter “PT” Townend will be on hand to MC the event.

In less than two years, the NJSHOF has evolved into a nationally recognized organization that celebrates all things related to New Jersey surfing. In addition to the biannual inductions, the New Jersey Surfing Hall of Fame has also created an annual Surfers’ Gala to celebrate current surfing talent and the community that supports it. The Hall of Fame has hosted multiple events honoring the 50th anniversary of iconic film The Endless Summer and continues to expand its reach. The NJSHOF is a registered 501(c)3 charity dedicated to preserving New Jersey’s rich surfing heritage. We forever enshrine those of significance and those responsible for its development, culture, and lore by preserving our legacy of historically valuable timelines, places, people, and  all things surfing in New Jersey.
