2013 Southeast Regional Champs Sunrise Surf Shop

The seven-event nationwide search will carryon throughout the next few months traversing the continent to identify the best teams from stops in Florida, North Carolina, New Jersey, Hawaii and three areas of California. Four-man teams (two surf shop pros and two shop employees) will be competing for a chance to win an all-expense-paid trip to the National Championship in Central America, an advertising spread in SURFER Magazine, and the coveted title and bragging rights of best surf shop in the country.

2014 reigning National Champ Sunrise Surf Shop has been the dominant force in the Southeast with an untarnished record of five straight regional victories and two National Championships (2006 and 2013) under its belt. But who will take the title in 2014, is still anyone’s bet.
