Relentless & UK Pro Surf Tour events launch in May
UK Pro Surf Tour Updates
An elite surf tour created by Relentless Energy Drink in collaboration with UK Pro Surf Tour returns
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 May, 2012 : - - Relentless Energy Drink is proud to announce the Relentless Energy Drink Super Series, an elite surf tour created in conjunction with UKPST (UK Pro-Surf Tour), will be returning in 2012 for a second year. A bespoke tour for 28 of the best surfers in the UK (including Relentless Energy Rider’s Jayce Robinson and Oli Adams), the Super Series will be unique among surf tours. The Super Series is taking place in three top UK locations (Thurso, Lynmouth and Llantwit) cherry picked by the pro’s themselves and the UKPST.
Each stop will include an extended waiting period, meaning the competition will only take place on the day with the best waves. Also the compact tour allows athletes to compete in competitions across Europe and further the cause for British surfing. To top it off the tour will feature a phenomenal total cash prize of £15,000! With £5,000 allocated to the winner of each competition.
As well as the 28 invited pros, each heat will feature four wildcard surfers. These will be locals nominated by surf associations from the three event locations, brought in not just to highlight the fantastic raw talent in the UK, but to keep each stop on the tour fresh with an injection of new energy every time.
A spokesperson for Relentless Energy Drink Said “Super Series 2011 was such a great opportunity for Relentless Energy Drink to give back to our grass roots surf following. In 2012 we want to improve on it to create one of the best tours in the UK, dedicated to hardcore surfers.”
Dave Reed, Relentless Energy Drink Super Series Tour Director commented, “The ground breaking Relentless Energy Drink Super Series tour proved a great success in the first year, with epic waves at the venues of competition. Year two has been improved with longer waiting periods and a change of one venue to now have a tour which includes locations in Scotland England and Wales.”
