NERC 2007 REGIONALS
Wrap Up May 15-2007
should not be a single member of our organization, or for that matter,
any Surfer alive today, who does not get the difficulty
of predicting waves. We all know it's a Crap Shoot. You roll the dice
and hope for the better.Running the Regionals is much harder than having
our local District contests. We can't postpone a REGIONAL contest from
week to week. It does not work that way. Too many surfers and too much
equipment travelling long distances make for a "set in stone"
policy. Besides there are many more Regional contests to run for the ESA
each Spring. Having said all that, TEAM NNE did fairly well in
the little surf. We had several Finalists who are now qualified to surf
in the Easterns. With several of them taking First Place. (See above)
NNE Director Lenny Nichols and Garret Krapf took first in
the MENS Shortboard division. And that my friends is no easy task
in any size surf.
The sad irony of predicting surf is apparent by the "Real" swell
that's hitting the Northern New England shores this weekend. Like
we said. It's very difficult predicting surf. But that's also the beauty
of Surfing. It's why we all love it. It is a unique sport that is unlike
any other. So to all the contestants and volunteers we thank you for particpating
in this truly amazing event (with or without surf). You should all still
feel proud of yourselves and our district. And we can only get better
with each contest from here on in.
