Surf, Sand, and Sun: How To Make the Most of A Trip To Virginia Beach
When you think of surfing hubs, Virginia Beach is probably not the first place that comes to mind. But, for the past 60 years, the resort city has been hosting the longest continually-run surfing competition in the world. Originally known as the Virginia Beach Surfing Carnival, the Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championships (ECSC) brings several hundred surfers from around the world to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to compete for East Coast surfing titles and prizes.
One look at the more than 100,000 people who attend ECSC events (both surfers and non-surfers), and it’s clear that Virginia Beach is a haven for people looking for a vacation where the water meets the sand.
