CHASING WAVES FOR CHANGE
Get ready for the 4TH ANNUAL SurfearNEGRA SURF-A-THON, a half-day event dedicated to chasing waves and welcoming new surfers to our commUNITY. This year we’re excited to share waves with teams everywhere--from San Diego to NY to SUP crews inland.
Here's the basic info:
Event is happening August 26th across multiple locations in Jacksonville Beach, FL (and around the world). Teams of surfers will meet and ride as many waves as possible in a two-hour period.
Designed for safe (socially distanced) participation; teams will meet at different beach accesses. *Event attendees encouraged to maintain safe social distancing while walking the beach.

On August 22nd (if you are attending the Jax Beach main event) we'll send you final details, including timing and the dedicated beach access where your team will surf. On event day, teams are encouraged to bring a tent, flag or cool set-up to help attendees find you in the water. We'll meet you with an official SurfearNEGRA wave counter & team sign.
If you are in a satellite city, designate a time for your team to meet up and surf your hearts out. Your final wave count will be on the honor system!
