Two stops of the 2013 Oakley Surf Shop Challenge, Southwest and West, will host the Oakley High School Surf Team Challenge for the second year running pitting 10 high school teams against each other for the regional title.
Each winning high school team will receive $5,000 ($2,500 for their Athletic Department and $2,500 for their Science Department). A $1,000 Spirit Award, donated to the Associated Student Body fund, is also on the line for the most spirited school in each region.
The high school division, which debuted in 2012, was wildly successful with top high school surf teams from around San Diego and Orange Counties turning up for the chance to compete. This year, the Southwest regional will take place on April 6th at Seaside Reef in Cardiff, Calif. where 2012 Champions Torrey Pines High School will defend their 2012 title.
