Oahu's Red Bull Rivals event names team members


Red Bull Rivals

Sandy Beach, Oahu
4 September 2010

Public can vote with text for each team's 'Ringer'

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 August, 2010 : - - Red Bull Rivals is a one day surf event pitting Oahu’s legendary shores, North Shore and South Shore, against each other. Top surfers from each shore will battle it out in a head-to-head surf competition for ultimate island bragging rights. To keep things fair, the event will again be held on the Eastside of Oahu at Sandy Beach, which is neutral territory.

Before the Red Bull Rivals 2009 competition, no surf event had been held at this popular surf location since the Gotcha Pro back in the early '80s. Instead of a traditional purse prize, the teams will compete for each others’ surfboards used in the competition (similar to racing for pink slips) and, of course, the winning team will earn the ultimate surfing bragging rights.

Ten surfers for each team were chosen by the public via an online poll. Each shore’s team has to include at least one female surfer and two groms. A “ringer” will be allowed to be a part of each team and does not have to be disclosed until day of competition; the “ringer” can be any surfer from anywhere in the world.

To cast your vote for the ringer, text “rbrivals” to 72855, voting closes 8/29/10
