Surf rises for Easter championships in Newport

April 24, 2014

Corran Moore catchs a wave during the Newport Surfing Championships this past weekend.

Isn’t it appropriate that the surf gods would be generous on Easter weekend, giving ESA competitors great waves to ride at the 2014 edition of the Newport Surfing Championships. The call came at 7 AM from Newport’s legendary icon, Sid Abruzzi. “ First Beach was firing with perfect waist to chest high swells. It is the right call today. Second Beach is only one foot and choppy.”

“This was the first time in several years, that we decided to run the contest at this beach,” said ESA Competition Director Mario Frade. “We randomly called the event for First Beach and scored. Everyone was surprised at the quality of the surf today.”
