Red Bull Rivals

Sandy Beach, Oahu
4 September 2010

Competition between Oahu's North Shore and South Shore to take place on Sandy Beach

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 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 (neutral territory). Before the Red Bull Rivals 2009 competition, no surf event had been held at this popular surf hangout location since the Gotcha Pro back in the early '80s. Teams will compete for each others' surfboards (used in competition) instead of a traditional purse (similar to racing for pink slips) & The ultimate surfing bragging rights

Ten surfers for each team will be chosen by online voting found on our Facebook page ; each team must have at least 1 girl and 2 groms (17 or under). Team Captains will be chosen by each team. A "ringer" will be allowed to be a part of each team and does not have to be disclosed until day of competition (this can be any surfer from anywhere in the world).

To cast your vote for the ringer, text rbrivals to 72855. Follow us on Twitter #rbrivals
