Surf Contest Sunday Morning!! Rexhame Beach, Marshfield

Surf Contest Relocated to Rexhame Beach from Nantasket

 THE GROM PRIX WILL BE HELD THIS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH AT REXHAME BEACH IN MARSHFIELD, STARTING AT 8 AM SHARP.   OUR TRADITIONAL NANTASKET BEACH SITE IS NOT AVAILABLE, BECAUSE THE NANTASKET BEACH TRIATHLON IS SCHEDULED THE SAME DAY TO SUPPORT THE HULL ATHLETICS BOOSTERS.  FORTUNATELY, THE TOWN OF MARSHFIELD HAS ALLOWED US TO USE THE REXHAME BEACH SITE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GREAT WEATHER AND WAVES!

THE DETAILS:

WHAT TO EXPECT: A REALLY GOOD TIME! ALTHOUGH THIS IS A ‘CONTEST’, IT IS MORE ABOUT COMMUNITY AND GETTING ALL THE KIDS TOGETHER FROM ALL OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS ON THE SOUTH SHORE AND BEYOND. THE EARLY ROUND HEATS ARE FUN AND UNCOMPETITIVE. EVERYBODY WITH A GOOD ATTITUDE GETS A FREE SWAG BAG UPON TURNING IN THEIR JERSEY!

START TIME:  THE FIRST HEAT WILL GO IN THE WATER AT 8 AM.  YOU WILL ALL RECEIVE HEAT SHEETS VIA EMAIL BY 6 PM ON SATURDAY, SO YOU WILL KNOW WHAT TIME YOUR HEAT IS.  COMPETITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE TENT AT LEAST 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR HEAT.  WE SUGGEST GETTING THERE EARLY, PACKING A LUNCH, AND MAKING A DAY OF IT! WE EXPECT THE CONTEST TO BE DONE BY ONE O’CLOCK.  

HEATS:  HEATS VARY BETWEEN 12-15 MINUTES.  A BLOW HORN WILL SIGNAL THE BEGINNING AND END OF EACH HEAT.   EACH RIDE IS SCORED BETWEEN 1-10.  ONLY YOUR BEST RIDE COUNTS, SO WAIT FOR THE GOOD ONES! THE SURFERS WITH THE TOP 2 SCORES IN EACH HEAT GO DIRECLTY TO THE FINALS.  HEAT SHEETS AND TIMES WILL BE MAILED OUT TOMORROW BY 6 PM.  

LIFEGUARDS:  AS ALWAYS, PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING AN EYE ON THEIR OWN CHILDREN AND DETERMINING IF THE CONDITIONS ARE MANAGEABLE FOR THEIR CHILD.  THERE ARE NO LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY IN SEPTEMBER. 

LOCATION: REXHAME BEACH IS A SANDY BEACH WITH AMPLE PARKING, BATHROOMS AND GREAT WAVES.  IT IS AT THE END OF STANDISH STREET IN MARSHFIELD.  ON YOUR GPS, TYPE IN “STANDISH STREET, MARSHFIELD MA”.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A GPS, GO EAST ON 139 IN MARSHFIELD.  YOU WILL PASS LEVITATE ON YOUR RIGHT.   EXACTLY TWO MILES PAST LEVITATE, TAKE A LEFT ON TO WINSLOW STREET.  WINSLOW STREET BECOMES STANDISH STREET AFTER A HALF MILE, AND ENDS IN A DEAD END PARKING LOT AT REXHAME BEACH.  

WHAT TO BRING: THE EARLY MORNING WILL BE CHILLY SO PACK A SWEATSHIRT.  THE WATER IS THE WARMEST IT HAS BEEN ALL YEAR, BUT PACK YOUR WETSUITS BECAUSE OF THE WIND CHILL. DISCOUNTED WETSUIT AND BOARD RENTALS ARE AT LEVITATE FOR COMPETITORS FOR PICKUP ON SATURDAY NIGHT OR SUNDAY MORNING.  

IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT:  WE WILL HOLD YOUR SWAG BAG AT LEVITATE, WITH YOUR NAME ON IT.  FEEL FREE TO PICK IT UP AT YOUR CONVENIENCE, 7 DAYS A WEEK, BETWEEN 10AM-6PM.   

ADDITIONNAL SIGNUPS:  THEIR ARE A FEW SPACES LEFT IN SOME OF THE DIVISIONS.  NO HEATS WILL BE ADDED AT THIS POINT, BUT WE WILL ALLOW ADDITIONAL ENTRIES TO FILL IN ANY HEATS THAT ARE NOT FULL.  THESE LAST MINUTE SIGNUPS WILL BE ALLOWED, SPACE PERMITTING, AT LEVITATE ON SATURDAY OR AT THE BEACH SUNDAY MORNING.
