Head to the beach to catch an incredible live show that’s unlike any other on the Outer Banks with the ESA Mid-Atlantic Regional Surfing Championship. Known as a qualifier for the big USA Surfing’s Prime events and USA Surfing Championships that are held in the summertime, this event attracts talented surfers from all across the region and well beyond to the heart of the Outer Banks for a truly spectacular competition.

The ESA Mid-Atlantic Regional Surfing Championship takes place just off the beach by Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, and the central locale makes the event easy to attend for visitors staying throughout the central OBX area, and even the northern and southern Outer Banks. The other ESA Regional competitions are held in varying points along the Eastern Seaboard, so this is an exceptional opportunity to catch talented surfers close to home. Surfers can visit the ESA website for information on how to compete and when, and spectators will have a blast at the multiple-day event as well, thanks to tons of talent on full display. Grab a beach chair or a beach towel, and hit the sand for front row seats to one of the best spring shows on the ‘Banks.
