      The 2021 Wes Laine Super Grom presented Coastal Edge featuring Quiksilver and Roxy

      The 2021 Wes Laine Super Grom presented Coastal Edge featuring Quiksilver and Roxy

      It was a beautiful day in Virginia Beach and the 59th annual Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championship kicked off with our favorite event, the Wes Laine Super Grom featuring Quiksilver and Roxy.  

      The Super Grom contestants are all under the age of 10.  They are accompanied in the water by a parent or adult, who pushed them into the waves.  For many of the Groms, this is their first time getting up on a surfboard.  Being able to see the happiness on these Groms faces is what makes this event so special.

      Learning to surf and get up on the board teaches these little surfers how to be confident and go for what they want.  

      We want to thank our sponsors, Quiksilver and Roxy.  Thank you for bringing the stoke and helping to make it an epic day for our Coastal Edge Family and Groms!

      Congratulations to all of our winners!!

       

      The Inaugural Coastal Edge Shoot the Pier Surf Contest 2021

      The Inaugural Coastal Edge Shoot the Pier Surf Contest 2021

      Surfing has been a favorite past time for generations of Virginia Beach locals.  Daily dawn patrols and surf reports are a priority to find that perfect spot.  Up until 1985, surfers enjoyed the natural break at the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier.  Then it was closed for surfing and became a fishing only location.

      36 years later Coastal Edge brought back being able to Shoot the Pier!

      Mother nature showed off her support for the event with a beautiful rainbow that extended from the pier to the jetty.  Blessing all of our surfers the very best luck for the competition.

      The weather was perfect, bright and sunny.  The crowd was ready for some fun and it was amazing to be able to see everyone's smiling faces again.  

      From first time in the water Groms to our Legends, everyone showed off their amazing talent.

      We are so thankful for our city allowing us to have this event.  A special thanks to the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier for allowing the surfers to have their day to Shoot the Pier!  Thank you to all of the families and spectators that came out to cheer on their favorite competitor. 

      We love our city, we love our community and we are all Ohana!

      Style, Comfort and the Perfect Gift for Mom

      Style, Comfort and the Perfect Gift for Mom

      It’s sunny and warm and your closet is screaming for the perfect sandals and flip flops for your wardrobe. During the sunny spring days and the warm summer nights, nothing completes an outfit quite like a pair of Havaianas.


      Whether you are a shorts and tee, or a little black dress kind of girl, Havaianas has your feet covered with style. With over a hundred different designs and color options, you have a choice for every mood and outfit change.


      With a price point that is affordable and a product that is well made and comfortable, you can’t help but stock up on them. Created in 1962 to resemble the Japanese sandal known as a zori, Havaianas are made with a rubber sole, straps that don’t come loose and a fit that doesn’t lose shape.


      When you slide your tan toes into a unique pair of Havaianas you can feel confident that you are wearing the “original sandal”!  Yep, in 1966 Havaianas patented the rubber flip flop. Nothing like merging authenticity with style.

      With Mother's Day coming up, these are the perfect gift for that special lady in your life.  You can even match your Mini-Me.


      So slide on the maxi dress, pull on those denim shorts, rock that bikini and always make sure you add on your own personal touch of flare with a pair of Havaianas this season.
