Drop in on Surfalorus Film Festival 🏄‍♂️

Web Browser Version

September 2022

When it comes to surfing, September’s Outer Banks weather typically cranks up solid swells for riders to show off their skills and perhaps get “shacked.”

So, two big-time contests are scheduled. The WRV OBX Pro heats up Sept. 1 and barrels into Labor Day Weekend. Out in the line-up, these pros battle to score the most points in this World Surf League sanctioned event.

On the beaches, spectators soak in surf culture -- fun, sun, sand and tan. In the end, the best wave rider gets cash and league points. Fans may get a free T-shirt, koozie or opener from sponsor Pacifico.

Next up, amateurs from up and down the East Coast arrive in Nags Head on Sunday, Sept. 18 for the Easterns, which runs to Saturday, Sept. 24. Unlike the pros, this association features multiple age groupings called divisions from each of 22 different districts from Maine to Florida.

The older adults typically get this event started. Each of the 27 age groups compete in heats until the winners are judged to be the best. From Grand Legends to Menehunes, this association covers the entire surfing spectrum.

And Surftember wouldn’t be complete without the Surfalorus Film Festival, which features evening surf flicks that Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Sept.19-21 in Ocean View Hall.

Be there, aloha!
