The Central North Carolina District of ESA has been on a roll this season with consistent surf for their contest series. CNC Contest 3 was held on June 1 at Bogue Inlet Pier in Emerald Isle. Surfers enjoyed semi-clean waist high waves breaking on the outside sandbar, providing more than enough to produce a venue for high performances.


The Central North Carolina District of ESA has been on a roll this season with consistent surf for their contest series. CNC Contest 3 was held on June 1 at Bogue Inlet Pier in Emerald Isle. Surfers enjoyed semi-clean waist high waves breaking on the outside sandbar, providing more than enough to produce a venue for high performances.



Ruffin Mancuso was a double winner capturing the Menehune Longboard title before focusing on his shortboard performance. He advanced to the Semiís in the Open division before winning the 3A Boys Title.



Tate Hanford set his sights on the Open Am/Pro. He surfed consistently well in the early rounds and rose to the top of the division by picking off the best waves in the more challenging shore break in the final. He also placed 2nd in the Masters Division.



The 2A Boys Division and the Novice Menehune Division have become very competitive with the addition of several new competitors. Colton Ellis charged fearlessly in the shore break to win the Novice Menehune Division while Josh Springfield and Nelson Ricks went head to head in the 2A Boys Division with Springfieldtaking the crown.



CNCís next contest will be on June 22/23 at the Oceanana Pier in AtlanticBeach. Newcomers are welcome. ESA membership is required to participate. Join online at surfesa.org.
