"What could be better than spending an entire summer’s day surfing with your friends, listening to great music, and eating freshly grilled chicken avocado sandwiches?" writes The Inertia's Tory Knoepfel. "By most surfer’s standards, not much. The Big Andrew has brought that unparalleled experience to the New England surf community on Long Sands Beach in York Beach, Maine since the foundation’s first surf contest in 2008. The best part? It’s all for a great cause."
For Knoepfel, as well as many other attendees, it's become impossible to imagine a summer without The Big Andrew.
