After much discussion with the surfers, sponsors and organizers, it has been decided that it is in the best interest of the event, to push back the 2017 COLD WAR to late fall/early winter of 2017.
The state of emergency and the disruption of air travel on the East Coast made it impossible to run the 2017 COLD WAR in the super swell that came from Stella.
All things have to come together at the right time for an event like ours to happen. The swell, the weather, the surfers and the logistics of all three, have to be well orchestrated in order to run in the conditions we feel represent the event in its best light.
People have put in a lot of time and energy in putting the 2017 COLD WAR together and making this difficult decision. Sure we are bummed, but at the same time, the team is excited to run the contest as fall turns into winter.
Thank you to all who came out to the opening party and all the support from our sponsors and the City of Asbury Park.
