From The NJSHOF board:
“A stellar group of 2017 nominees and inductees as will be every year. Certainly there are dozens of legends we did not see in this years nomination pool that could’ve been. And most understandably disappointment can be understood by the those not in this years pool or not inducted for 2017 but your time will definitely come. For our eight remaining legends – Dennis Doyle, Bill Willem, Steve Jones Michael Morton, Justin Citta, Glenn Magill, Seth Stafford and Matt Keenan, all are eligible for induction hereafter in perpetuity and of in itself a very high honor.

Now it’s time to celebrate and honor our class of NJSHOF 2017 inductees! Induction event tickets are limited. More than 150 tickets are already spoken for three months out. Ensure your participation for another night of New Jersey surf history. Get your tickets online at njsurfinghalloffame.com. The event will sell out – we can not guarantee night of ticket sales.

Lastly – Much thanks to our Shoreline Directors in building a very worthy nomination pool and our NJSHOF Induction Committee for stellar class of 2017 Inductees.”
