Toms River Women Compete in Belmar Pro

Two-weekend surfing event begins with amateur leg today.

As Hurricane Leslie heads north this weekend, likely creating some of the year's biggest swells, dozens of surfers will be hitting the water for the amateur leg of the Annual Belmar Pro

And the fun is just getting started, as next weekend some of the world's best surfers will ascend on the Jersey Shore for the Belmar Pro competitions at 16th Avenue beach and the 20th Annual Manasquan Longboard Classic at the Manasquan Inlet. 

Among them are two women from Toms River, in the Hannah Pro of the Annual Belmar Pro:

Dana Palmieri, a regular in the Belmar Pro who took fourth in the Unsound Pro in 2009; and Brittany Gomulka, who for the last 11 years has served as a lifeguard for Seaside Park Beach Patrol which won first place in the paddle relays lifeguard tourney this year.

Check out Palmieri and Gomulka along with surfers from Jackson, Manasquan, Avon and elsewhere on the Jersey Shore, plus visitors from Hawaii and the Carolinas.

  • Boy’s Shortboard 14 and Under
