14th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest Presented by Billabong
Life is good in Ocean City, NJ

Sadly Chip Miller passed away in 2004 from a little known disease called amyloidosis. He was a great man and friend to many and lived by a simple motto “Life is good”. His passion shined through over and over and was an amazing family man. We’re confident he was looking down ensuring the day was successful, and hid do a phenomenal job!

The event that was destined to be held on July 30th! Terrible weather forecasts forced the 14th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest to change the date to a couple days later. Sunday, July 30th will be engrained in many surfers heads for a long time! The surf: PERFECT! The weather: PERFECT! The fun: ALL-TIME! The smiles: PRICELESS. The awareness for a terrible disease called AMYLOIDOSIS: over the top!

The waves and weather couldn’t have been better for this family-friendly extravaganza. With the incredible ingredients at hand it really showcased the unbelievable surfing talent that’s offered in this area. The talent shined all day long, the stoke spread throughout the beach. This 14th annual event will be one for the history books, if you were there you know what we’re talking about. If you weren’t there, you missed an amazing event.

The 7th Street beach became a sea of people, sponsors and tents. Event organizer and Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation board member said it best, “It only took 14 years to get perfect surf, but this year we did it!” Indeed the surf was perfect and extremely rare for this time of year in Ocean City, NJ. But the surfing talent was stunning and fierce throughout the fun-filled day making it fun for everyone on the beach.

If you didn’t make it down to the Ocean City, NJ 7th Street beach on Sunday, you really should have. But not to worry, the 15th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest promises to be bigger and better than ever. The Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation will be hosting our first Inaugural Chip Miller ’80s Skate Fest at the OC, NJ Skate Park on August 11th starting at 11am. Following the Skate Fest you won’t want to miss the Slide for Amyloidosis held at the Ocean City, NJ Waterpark on August 11th starting at 6pm.
