Miss Reef: Natalia is from Argentina

A bevy of Miss Reef hopefuls graced the stage at the 2010 Miss Reef Contest this past weekend, but only one contestant took home the coveted title.

Simply going by her first name, Natalia, the Argentine was officially crowned Miss Reef as she won over thousands of spectators and judges at the Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championships.

Natalia won her share of $2000 in prizes, and will fly to Hawaii in November to compete at the Miss Reef Hawaiian Pro during the first stop of the Van’s Triple Crown of Surfing.

The Miss Reef contest held during the ECSC was a worldly event with contestants representing from up and down the Eastern seaboard, and as far away as Panama, Brazil and Argentina. In fact, the Miss Reef contest is one of the few times where the identity of Miss Reef is actually revealed to the public.

Feel like you missed out? Well you did, but stay tuned for more info on the upcoming Miss Reef Hawaiian Pro this coming November. Even if you aren’t lucky enough to live on the North Shore, a live webcast of the Miss Reef Contest could be the next best thing.

Want to see more of Natalia? A Miss Reef title will offer her the opportunity to represent Reef in advertisements, inclusion in the Miss Reef Calendar, and appearances at special events around the world.
