When Arnt and Valerie Arntzen lived in California and Arnt started surfing he would always look for surf trophies in the thrift stores. Lots of golf and bowling but never a surf one. So of course he made one and they got a bunch of surfer friends together and started this club in 2009. The group goes every year and camps at Greenpoint, shares meals and surfs together. On one of the days is the contest and there is a trophy that one person gets their name on and keeps for a year.
