4/23 - 4/24 Easter Surf Contest Cocoa Beach

Every weekend, especially Easter weekend always brings a crowd to Cocoa Beach

14-year-old phenom Joshua Burke of Barbados made the final and finished in 3rd place

Jake Kirschenbaum from Cocoa Beach finished second


VA Beaches Michael Dunphy took home the win and $2500

Michael Dunphy had to go through some traffic. It was hard keeping some of the swimmers out of
the compition area with this kind of crowd

Melbourne's Kyle Garson is no stranger to surfing this contest. He won a couple.

Joshua Burke stole the show in my opinion. He caught more waves did more maneuvers
but just didn't have the power in them to keep up with Kirschenbaum and Dunphy's scores
