About the ESA

ESA is the largest amateur surfing association in the world. Their family oriented
programs promote a healthy and active lifestyle. It is not uncommon to find two or three generations of the same family involved as members of the ESA, and actively competing in ESA programs. Two of the original founders of the ESA, Cecil Lear and David Reese, are still active in the association forty years later.Eleven time world professional surfing champion Kelly Slater and former world professional womens surfing champion Lisa Anderson both learned their competitive skills through the Eastern Surfing Association.
