Super Surfer Saturday with SurfGirlBrit


One of my longtime surf buddies who lives all the way in Carolina Beach, North Carolina is conducting the first annual Tony Silvagni Surf School Foam Board Fest. He is out there putting on an amazing event, supporting his local community, and doing just what he loves to do teaching people how to surf. I really admire how much Tony has contributed to the sport of surfing in his own hometown and across the globe.

I’ve always been inspired by Tony Silvagni’s journey in becoming such a successful professional surfer. When I was roommates with Tony back in 2008, he was winning every contest he entered with his smooth, stylish flow and innovative tricks that he created. Watching Tony surf is extremely impressive and anytime I get the opportunity to watch him compete in the pro longboard division, I get so excited to see what he has up his sleeve. With his competitive surfing success and the continuous support from his small beach community, Tony was able to build an amazing surf school from the bottom up. Tony is always giving back to his community by teaching neighbors and visitors of Carolina Beach how to surf. He’s always coming up with fun events each and every year for those who are stoked to be a part of something in their favorite sport and support a good cause.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony Silvagni for bringing the people of his community together for a fun day at the beach with family and friends.  All of the proceeds for this event are being donated to the Pleasure Island Lifeguard Association.
