Revolt Summer Surf Series
Ocean Beach Pier, San Diego, Calif.
20 July, 2013
Event #2 of Revolt Summer Surf Series at OB Pier
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 July, 2013 : - - San Diego, California -- The second event of the Revolt Summer Surf Series will be held on the north side of OB Pier on July 20. Ocean Beach historically presents the athletes with a fun wave during the summer south swells and a large crowd of spectators.
The Grudge Match format used with this year's Pro Am, actually allows the athletes to call out their opponents and surf against them thru out the day. Surfing against your best friend or arch rival makes for exciting competition and interesting strategy. There is a $2000.00 cash prize purse for the Pro Am Division!
The first event of four took place June 22 at PB Drive and saw record sign-ups in Pro Am & SUP Surf divisions.108 surfers battled the entire day, with heats running continually from 8am until roughly 7pm.
For event # 2 in OB the Pro Am division will be capped and heats will run with four riders (including the finals). If you are planning on signing up or have team riders that you want to sign up - it is a good idea to do it now, online and in advance of the event.
We will not open more heats the day of the event, like we did for the first event - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Please sign up in advance!
Stand Up Paddle companies like Kings Paddlesports, Riviera Paddlesurf, OEX of Pt. Loma and Art In Surf attracted a large crowd supporting the SUP Surf divisions. A cash prize purse of $500.00 will be awarded to the Men's Sup Surf division (Winner take all) - The Junior's & Women's SUP Surf divisions both need a minimum of 6 signups by day of event to run.
At the first event a total of $2700.00 was awarded to the top Pro riders. Custom trophies by STRGHT and the legendary RSSS swag bags were awarded to the top competitors in all divisions.
The official RSSS After Party will be held at the newly opened Wonderland Ocean Pub in OB. Best view in San Diego! Come down and enjoy craft beer, craft cocktails, seafood and grill items. The event will begin at 7pm. VIP Lounge is courtesy of Revolt In Style Magazine and Red Bull.
