Revolt In Style extends International Surfing Day 'stoke'
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 June, 2014 - Revolt In Style confirmed today that, while June 20th has been earmarked as International Surfing Day - June 21st marks The First Day of Summer, the Summer Solstice and the first event of the eighth annual Revolt Summer Surf Series Pro Am presented by HOVEN.
On Friday, June 20th, beachgoers and surf enthusiasts from around the world will come together to celebrate the Surfrider Foundation’s 10th Annual International Surfing Day. The Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter is teaming up with FM949 to host a free family-friendly event in Ocean Beach (on the grassy area next to Veterans Plaza and the Santa Monica lifeguard station) from 3-10pm. Just behind the area, on the beach, visitors will see the Revolt Summer Surf Series (RSSS) set-up, under construction for the event the following day.
The RSSS is a Non ASP domestic surfing competition dedicated to providing a stage for both male and female surfers (professional and amateur) to perform in their sport and be recognized for their achievements. This grassroots surf series is supported by surfers and media from around the globe. The RSSS provides an alternative to typical surf contests in San Diego. The event has been attracting surfers that may otherwise shy away from competition with the laid back - no pressure - everyone is welcome - attitude. Unconventional sponsors like SkyDive San Diego, Snow Summit Summer and Dos Equis make the RSSS synonymous with 'Another Level of Interesting'.
“This is great...” said Brian Terhorst, co-founder of the RSSS, “we were already expecting a large turnout here in Ocean Beach, but this means even more eyes will be on our event. These surfers are some of the best on the planet & we want as many people down here as possible to cheer them on. Our events are open to the public & family friendly. What a great way to spend the first day of summer... at a surf contest!"
Visitors will also have the opportunity to browse product displays on-site provided by Hoven, Dos Equis, Surf Ride Surf Shops, OEX Point Loma, Futures Fins, Watermen's, Snow Summit, Sky Dive San Diego, ZipCar.com and others at each event. - all sorts of games, giveaways, samples & equipment demos are there to engage the fans.
Other new sponsors for 2014 include Surf Ride Surf Shops, SurfersVillage.com, Futures Fins, Waterman's Sunscreen, POP Paddleboards, Progress Mfg, Sky Dive San Diego & Snow Summit Mt. Bike Park.
The Green Beach element will be in full swing this summer with The Surfrider Foundation, SD Coastkeeper, Progress Mfg. and Wildcoast on site, raising awareness towards issues including water quality, marine life conservation, coastal access, protecting our surf spots, recycling & more. Volunteer a few minutes of your time for our beach cleanups after each event.
"We plan on turning these events into the most interesting series at the beach this summer." said RSSS co-founder Leslie Terhorst, "This year we're adding some new elements to the events to make sure we attract the top surfers around. Most notably for 2014 is the all new SURF SHOP CHALLENGE."
Surf Shops can sponsor up to four surfers at each event. At least two members must be employees of the shop. Not only will those surfers be competing for individual glory in the Pro/Am division, but the accumulated points will be tallied up & that winning team will receive $400.00 cash at each event .
At The FINAL event, (during the annual Pacific BeachFest) in October, all season points will be added up & we will crown a SURF SHOP CHALLENGE CHAMPION. That winning team will receive more cash, killer swag & the surf shop will be awarded a custom trophy to display - plus - advertising & product placement in the annual Revolt In Style Magazine Holiday Gift Guide. Bragging rights as well as cold hard cash are on the line for these teams, while exposure & PR are on the line for the surf shops. Get your surf shop team together asap!
Red Bull, the official energy drink of the RSSS, will be featuring world class DJ's, athlete autograph signings, brand ambassadors and an outdoor lounge where fans & athletes can relax & re-fuel at each event.
Wonderland Ocean Pub at 5083 Santa Monica Ave, in Ocean Beach will host the first official after party. Hoven, Red Bull and Dos Equis (among others) will present an evening of music, fun & libations for the 21 and over crowd. Past seasons have seen appearances from world champion surfers, NFL players and multiple recording artists. You never know who will show up to an RSSS event!
The first event of the Revolt Summer Surf Series presented by HOVEN - is set to kick off June 21 at The OB Pier in Ocean Beach.
