Winner-takes-all sponsorship package event to run Weds & Thurs
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 November, 2013 - Santa Cruz, California - Contest organizers have made the call to run the 2013 O’Neill Coldwater Classic Invitational on Wednesday, November 6 and Thursday, November 7, the first two days of the four-day contest holding period, to take advantage of the surf size and favorable conditions Official Forecaster Surfline has predicted.
The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) North America Specialty Event will see 16 unsponsored surfers battle for a $50,000 grand prize winner-takes-all yearlong sponsorship package. The heat draw will be determined in a random draw during opening festivities at the East Side Eatery in Santa Cruz on Tuesday, November 5.
According to the Surfline Forecast Team: “Fun size, longer period WNW swell will start the event waiting period on Wednesday the 6th, along with favorable wind and weather conditions under the influence of high pressure. Decreasing surf takes over on Thursday, with a very modest new bump of WNW swell late Thursday and into Friday. At this point the weekend looks fairly slow off a mix small, mid period NW swells and small Southern Hemisphere SSW swell.”
