The Steel Pier Classic is a professional and amateur surfing contest.  It is the largest longboard event on the east coast.

The name is part of a tribute to the old Virginia Beach steel pier that was near First Street.  The event has approximately 400 competitors.

Surfers will compete for a total purse of more than $13,000.  It runs all weekend long.
