Perfect days are a rare gift and the final day of the ESAs seemed about as close to a perfect day as could be found.-Kip Tabb
A beautiful break in the ocean, warm sunshine and a light breeze created some incredible action in the surf.
The kids took to the water early afternoon with some body boarding followed by the longboarders. Menehunes, boys and girls were in the surf and there was some really good rides.
In the Junior Women’s longboard, Jazmine Dean from Florida really stood out, showing a grace and athleticism that focused attention on what she was doing.
It wasn’t just the ESA competition that made this such an amazing day.
Jennette’s Pier was lined with fishermen (and women)–not a lot of action but it looked like a few perch were being landed.
On the north end of the Pier, away from the ESAs, surfers were in it just for fun, sitting on their boards, waiting for a wave–lined up for about as far as the eye could see. And along the horizon the masts of at least three sailboats could be seen.
It just doesn’t get much better than that.
