Major Media Event In Sea Isle

A message from the Sea Isle City Chamber of Commerce:

Dear Friends: I am very pleased to announce that on Friday morning we are hosting a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the start of the summer tourist season in Sea Isle City and the entire Jersey Shore. New Jersey Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno will be in Sea Isle to participate in this event, which will once again put our town in the spotlight. Our ribbon-cutting ceremony will coincide with those in other communities up and down the Jersey Shore, all of which are part of the state's "Stronger Than The Storm" tourism campaign. Also on Friday morning, Governor Christie will be in Seaside Heights, where he will co-host NBC's Today Show, which will be broadcasting live from that location for two hours. In addition, an NBC helicopter will be flying up and down the Jersey shore at that time taking video of other communities - like ours - participating in ribbon-cutting festivities. I hope you can join us and help spread the message that the shore is open for business. We want our Promenade to be filled with smiling faces when the NBC helicopter flies along Sea Isle City! The ribbon-cutting event kicks-off at 8:00 a.m., when members of Ocean City High School Choir will sing our National Anthem and other music selections. Additionally, a professional sand sculptor will be on hand creating one of his masterpieces - plus you will get to see your neighbors and friends and kick-off the 2013 season in style! I hope you can join us on Friday at 8:00 a.m. at the Sea Isle City Beach Pavilion, located on the Promenade at JFK Boulevard. We will also need people to stand at different points along the Promenade to hold the one-mile long ribbon we will be cutting, so be sure to come to the Promenade and participate in this memorable event. It promises to be a great start to a tremendous summer in Sea Isle City and all along the Jersey Shore - and I hope you can be there! Smile...You're in Sea Isle! Mayor Leonard C. Desiderio

Surfing in Sea Isle City

This year's Eastern Surfing Association’s Northeast Regionals, which is the qualifying event for the Eastern Surfing Championships, will be held this weekend on the 40th Street Beach in Sea Isle City.

Sea Isle City Surfing

The Eastern Surfing Association is the world’s largest amateur surfing organization, with more than 25 districts from Maine to Florida, the Gulf Coast and the Great Lakes.

At the end of each season, the best surfers qualify to surf the following spring to determine who heads to the championship which is held on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in September.

The Northeast Regionals have been held up and down the East Coast, including: Newport, Rhode Island; Montauk, New York (in the Hamptons); and in Rye, New Hampshire.  But this year, we are lucky to have it held right here in Sea Isle City!  This is sure to be a big advantage for South New Jersey surfers, which always do well in this competition.

The Eastern Surfing Association last held the Regionals in Sea Isle in 2001.
