This contest schedule is always subject to change. 
All of the local SSC Contests are held at the Washout on Folly Beach.
First division is $15.00. Each additional division is $5.00. Please make checks payable to ESA.
You may pick up an entry from any local surf shop, fill it out & leave it there for us. We pick up the shop entries on the Monday afternoon before the contest. 
We should have the schedule of events posted on here by Friday afternoon (unless we have a lot of late entries & are still working on it, hint hint!)

We need to have your paid entries in our hands by Tuesday (not Thursday) afternoon to start setting up the heats.

Print it out and bring to any local surf shop or snail mail to address below.

Entries may also be mailed to:
PO Box 740
Folly Beach, SC  29439

Paid entries must be at the Jones's , 1603 Teal Marsh Rd., Riverfront Subdivision by TUESDAY afternoon.  (note: This is a change from Thursday)
We will accept beach entries on a first come first served basis, but it really makes it easier on everyone if you sign up in advance.  Also, this year there will be no more "paid points". You must stick your toe in the water to receive contest points!  We are considering bringing back late fees next season.

Please check out the new ESA rules & also the judges course.

2006 Competition Divisions (SSC local contest season usually runs from March thru November)
How old will turn on your birthday in 2006? You should surf in the division of that age group.

**Your competition age group is determined by your age as of January 1 of the year following our season's end. For
example, during the contests of the 2006 competition season, your competition age is determined by how
old you will be on January 1, 2007.**

It is possible that a surfer who is 17  years old for most of the season could end up
surfing in Mens if that person turns 18 in Nov. or Dec.Please review carefully to make sure you surf in the correct division. If you have any questions as to which div. you belong in, please email nancy at
