Revolt Summer Surf Series
The RSSS Pro-Am announces title sponsor, new divisions & charity partner
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 18 June, 2012 : - - San Diego -- The Revolt Summer Surf Series or RSSS, will kick off their sixth season June 23 at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach, CA with a new title sponsor, more cash & prizes, larger setups and the much anticipated new divisions; the SUP youth & SUP Roughwater Races.
A signature San Diego summer sporting event, the RSSS has been widely supported by surfers and media from around the globe. The growth of the event has been due largely to an open invitation for surfers professional & amateur, men and women, young and old to perform in the sport of their choice and be recognized for their accomplishments. Divisions include: Open Pro Am, Juniors (13-16), Groms (12 & under), Women, Longboard & Stand Up Paddle. New this season are SUP Youth Division (14 & Under) and SUP Roughwater Race.
Title sponsor, ROCKWELL Watches have teamed up with the RSSS to produce a four part Pro-Am surf series this summer including musical performances, charity raffles, the Green Beach Festival and fun beach activities. All four events take place at Crystal Pier this season with THE FINALS (October 6) running alongside the Pacific BeachFest in front of an estimated 75,000 people.
The RSSS is working with Surf Lifesaving Del Sur to raise monies toward the purchase of a personal water craft and other lifesaving equipment, badly needed by lifeguards in Baja California. Several San Diego lifeguards started this .org to train and equip lifeguards in beach resorts as far south as Cabo San Lucas where there were few or no lifeguards before. A widely un-advertised problem south of the border has been the lack of lifeguards patrolling resort beaches and a startling number of annual tourist & surfer drownings as a result. SurfLifesavingDelSur.org is on a mission to see that this problem is addressed and corrected and the RSSS is assisting in their efforts.
Throughout the series, raffle tickets will be made available for items including: SUP race boards, Custom shaped boards by Tim Bessell and Scott Chandler, Custom Longboard skateboards by Loyal Dean. Skydiving packages, ROCKWELL watches, bicycles and more will be raffled of with money going to our charities this year.
RSSS 6.0 Pro-Am Dates include: June 23, July 28, August 25, October 6. All events will take place on the north side of Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach, CA. All events are open to the public and family friendly.
