International surfing contest in Atlantic City canceled

  • 0

An international surfing competition scheduled to take place in Atlantic City later this month has been canceled.

The inaugural Atlantic City Longboard Surfing Invitational, presented by the Association of Surfing Professionals, was scheduled to take place from Sept. 19-21 on the beach in front of Resorts Atlantic City.

But Dave Prodan, the vice president of communications for the ASP, said Thursday that the event is off.

“Unfortunately, the Atlantic City event has been canceled,” Prodan said in an email. “The ASP is disappointed that the event could not be executed this season, but look forward to future opportunities for ASP longborders and with Atlantic City.”

The event was to be presented with support by the Atlantic City Alliance and in partnership with the Casino Reinvestment Developement Authority and would have featured a field of 16 male and eight female surfers competing for a prize fund of $15,000 and $7,500, respectively.

Prodan said he could not comment as to why the event was canceled.

Melanie Sole, a public relations representative from the Atlantic City Alliance, said the event was canceled due to work being done on the beach in front of Resorts. She said there are plans to reschedule, but a date has not been set.
