Surfing competition celebrates 50 years

 

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - The East Coast Surfing Championship is back again for the 50th year in a row, and this time Hurricane Irene won't be standing in the way of the biggest surfing tournament on the east coast.

More than $200,000 in prize money will be awarded which is the most in the history of the tournament and about 200 surfers will be competing.

The professional surfers who put on a good show earn points for the world tour.

"When I won the tournament in the '60s, we only could compete in one event," 1964 and 1965 ECSC winner Mimi Munro said.

Mimi is now 60 and is still surfing in the tournament. She is the first female to be inducted into the ECSC Legends Hall of Fame.
