Surfers gain valuable knowledge at each event regarding heat tactics

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 August, 2016 - RVLT Surf announces record turnouts this summer at the Chevrolet Revolt Summer Surf Series - Pier II Pier - Pro Am presented by Hodad's. Athletes, sponsors & spectators take over the entire beach and boardwalk areas at each stop. This weekend, will be no exception for stop #3 at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach.

"We attribute the growth of the RSSS events to our strong sponsors & international media partners this season," states co-founder Brian Terhorst, "most obviously, our Title Sponsor: Chevrolet. Chevy has helped us take these events to the next level for both the athletes and spectators. The Chevrolet Colorado / Shoreline Edition onsite activation, including a Surfboard Sweepstakes, has been a huge draw for us this summer. The Shoreline edition is the ultimate truck for Southern California surfing & action sport enthusiasts – and the Official vehicle of the 2016 RSSS. You can see the truck up close and in person at all the RSSS events."

Chevrolet and RVLT Surf have teamed up with Gordon & Smith surfboards to create 5 custom boards for theSurfboard Sweepstakes. One board will be awarded to an extremely lucky attendee at each of the 5 events this summer. You must be 18+ and be present during the awards ceremony to win.Each board is hand shaped by legendary shaper/surfer Kevin Connelly with custom laminates featuring Chevrolet / RSSS / Gordon & Smith branding. Each 'Hovercraft' style longboard is valued at $1200.00

The setup has the 'Wow factor' that we were missing & our judging is second to none." said co-founder Leslie Terhorst, "The surfers know the RSSS events are fair & unbiased. If you show up with your 'A Game' & surf well, chances are you will advance & get that much closer to the PRIME event & the Exotic Surf Trips*. Our staff include top ISA rated judges & industry professionals."

These events are proving grounds for up and coming surfers as well as seasoned competitors. Surfers gain valuable knowledge at each event regarding heat tactics. Strategy, wave selection and time management are just some of the lessons learned.
