Presented by HOVEN
Revolt Summer Surf Series
Pacific Beach, San Diego California
30 - 31 August 2014
Warm weather and S-SW swell make for amazing day of competition
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 September, 2014 - San Diego has been experiencing the positive benefits from a series of storms & hurricanes in Baja California over the past couple of weeks - Saturday saw fun waves in the 3-5 foot range for stop #3 of the Revolt Summer Surf Series presented by HOVEN - Perfect beach weather combined with the crisp S-SW swell made for an amazing day of competition.
Vince Boulanger had been consistently impressing the judges and spectators alike at each RSSS event this season with his power moves & his extensive air abilities - this time it paid off. In front of a large crowd and a loaded division, he charged hard against the Brazillian Icaro Rodrigues, the Ocean Beach standout Cody Sherman and the phenom from North SD; JD Lewis - and wound up with his first win of the series.
Remy Juboori found himself in a heated battle between Alan Cleland & Jack Stewart but came away with his first win of the series in the Juniors division.
Young Alyssa Spencer (11 yr) dominated in the Women's Pro Am division against Sophia Tiare & Morgan Gore, while Tiare Thompson continued her winning streak with a first place in the Jr. Women's division. Sophia Tiare also took home a first place trophy in the Women's SUP (an overall good day for the RSSS newcomer)
Men's SUP Surf division was a fun battle between friends after Daniel Hughes showed up just in time to keep the division from a scratch. Chuck Glenn, Jason Galetti and Daniel had a blast in head high sets for the final heat. Much respect for these athletes - Airs, big turns and absolutely 'destroying' the lip are common place within the division. Junior SUP surf ace Noah Hopper locked down the season with his third consecutive win of the series.
The series championship runs on October 4th on the south side of Crystal Pier. An estimated 60,000 spectators will be in Pacific Beach for the finale and Pacific BeachFest that runs during & alongside the event. The absence of a number of Pro Am competitors at Saturday's competition opens up the points and makes this anyone's series to win. The finals will prove whoever has what it takes to be RSSS Champion.
In light of the SUP Surf series wrapping up with stop #3 - the RSSS has added new divisions for the final event. A Masters (40 +) a Women's Longboard and the Expression Session will insure a full day of competition in October.
