Nuns Beach: God surfs here | Photo: Bill Cramer

The 15th annual Nun's Beach Surf Invitational will be held on September 11, Stone Harbor, New Jersey, USA.

It may look strange, but it is true. The Villa Maria by the Sea retreat is putting up a surfing competition. The story goes back to the 50's when a group of surfers asked the local nuns if they could ride the waves of the retreat's beach.

They said yes and the spot was baptized "Nun's Beach". In 1996, local surfers decided to give back all the love to the nuns and started a competition to raise funds to maintain the nun's retreat.

The relationship between surfers and nuns is great. Some day, we might see God hitting the line-up.

The $15 T-shirts will be available at the event to support the retreat.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved surfing's qualification system for the Tokyo 2020.
