      Waves and Words — Surf Virginia Beach

      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!
