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.
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.

1. Start Early
When it comes to finding that perfect Sea Isle City summer rental, the early bird catches the worm...or, in this case, the beautiful beach front on 4th of July week. Starting your search early will up your chances of finding the prefect home for your family. If you know the exact home and week you want to rent, the absolute best way to secure your rental is to call as early as the summer before. If you are not sure of the home or week, you'll want to look in early December. The rental market really starts to pick up after the New Year, so if you can start looking before then, you'll be ahead of the game!
2. Hire an Agent that you trust
The main advantage to using one of our Real Estate Agents is that they'll do the legwork for you, weeding out listings that don't match your criteria or that don't live up to their descriptions. For real estate novices, an agent can identify whether something is actually a good deal and how much certain features are really worth. You'll also save money by booking with Sea Winds of Sea Isle. We are the only agency in the city that does not charge a booking fee!
3. Check our Website early and Often
Has you're dream home already been booked by someone else. Don't despair! Our agents are very familiar with our inventory and will be willing to show you a home that is comparable to the one you want. It is also important to establish contact with one of our agents. If your week suddenly becomes available due to a cancellation, you'll be first on the list. You can start your Sea Isle City Rental search here.
It's easy to fall for fancy extras or a great decorations, but don't let those eye-catchers make you blind to the things that will really matter when you live there. We're talking size, location (for example, how far it is from town, the beach or bay) and, if you have a four-legged family member, the home's pet policy. After you've got the nonnegotiables covered, use some of those extras you'd love to have (but don't necessarily have to have) to help narrow your search.
5. Sign the Lease
Sometimes homes are rented out by different agencies. If you fail to sign the lease in a timely matter, another agency may book that perfect place first. Don't be a victim to procrastination!
