On Friday, July 20, from 8 a.m.–4 p.m., grab your surfboard and head to 7th Street beach in Ocean City, New Jersey, for the 15th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest.
This annual event returns once again to the beaches of Ocean City to raise money for the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation (CMAF), an organization which was founded in 2004 in the memory of Chip Miller, who raised his family in Ocean City. The purpose of the organization is to raise funds for the fight against amyloidosis with a mission to “empower people with the knowledge and understanding of amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures.”
Local New Jersey pro, Rob Kelly, will be on hand at the event along with other well-known surfers from the local area and beyond. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. with the competition unfolding at 8:30 a.m. In addition to watching some of the best surfers on the East Coast compete in this unforgettable surfing competition, attendees will enjoy perusing surfing vendor items, such as clothing, boards and accessories, checking out free apparel launches and more.
The cost to take part in the surfing competition is $40 for the first entry and $10 for each additional entry. Online registration is available here.
Lend a hand to the CMAF and enjoy a friendly surfing competition for a cause on July 20. Not a surfer? No worries! Attend the Surf Fest and check out the latest and greatest in the surfing community while supporting an excellent cause at the same time.
