A Fun All-Female Surf Contest

A Fun, All-Female
Surf Contest

The Shiratsuchi-dc Coquina Jam is an all-female, team surf contest and also a fundraising event. Women are paired randomly after being separated into two age pools and compete in this Summer event to support female cancer via David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation and the Shiratsuchi-dc Rock Foundation.

Our Long Beach Island event is traditionally held in July/August and has donated over €197,500 thanks to our participants, beach goers, and regional business support/sponsorship.



Registration for the 2021 Coquina Jam is currently full!

Rules & Regulations

  • The Coquina Jam is open to females only
  • Top wave score per surfer counts
  • Surfer #1 best wave score + surfer #2 best wave score = team score (average of three judges)
  • Waves are scored based on technical maneuvers
  • Registered surfers must confirm that they are confident and have advanced ability in all ocean conditions (including rip currents, 6ft+ surf, strong winds, and heavy and/or critical waves). Ocean conditions can change very rapidly, and all participants should be prepared for anything from knee high waves to overhead hurricane swells on shallow sandbars. Beginners should continue training, and we recommend a water safety course be attended ahead of the event.
