2022 Easterns® Invitation List – registration opens soon

Please check the 2022 Easterns Invitation List (updated August 3) to see if you earned a slot, or must apply for an alternate slot to the 2022 Easterns®. Competitors signing up for the 2022 Easterns® are only eligible for those divisions in which they competed during the 2022 ESA Regional events.

If your name is on the 2022 Easterns® Invitations List you will have until 11:59PM on August 16, 2022 to register via LiveHeats for your slot. If you register after that date, your registration will be considered a late paid alternate and you will be put on the alternate list.

Alternates will be considered for any remaining open slots in the order of their registration on LiveHeats. If your name is not on this list you may still register for an alternate slot, but only in the divisions in which you competed during the 2022 ESA Regionals. Any competitor applying for entry whose membership expires on or before September 30, 2022 must also renew their membership on LiveHeats before registering for the event.

Invitations for the 2022 Easterns® are determined by the ESA’s 2022 Regional event rankings.  If you did not compete in an ESA Regional event, you are not qualified to surf in The Easterns.


Entries for the 2022 Easterns® will only be accepted online via link when opened.

Be sure to check the 2022 Easterns® Invitations List above before submitting your entry.  Online registration fees will not be refunded if you register for a division that you are not qualified for.
