RVLT Surf announces divisions, dates and locations – plus – the return of the iconic Hodad’s as presenting sponsor of the 2017 Revolt Summer Surf Series 11.0 – Pier II Pier – Pro Am (RSSS)
“Now one of the largest surf series in southern California, the RSSS is widely supported by surfers and media from around the globe.” Co-founder Brian Terhorst said, “Season 10 saw record turnouts & some of the best surfing we’ve ever seen at the events. Surfers from Mexico, south America, south Africa, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and the UK competed against USA surfers at the 2016 events.”
He goes on to say, “Daily winners & overall season points winners took home custom boards, trophies, cash & great prizes, while the Pro Am Prime winners scored epic surf trips courtesy of Waidroka Bay Resort in Fiji, Scorpion Bay Hotel in Baja California & Nica Travel in Nicaragua. Spectators were treated to food & drink samples, giveaways & beach games – plus a new Gordon and Smith longboard was raffled off at each event. These events are a blast for everyone!”
Co-founder Leslie Terhorst says, “We’re so happy to have Hodad’s back as our presenting sponsor. Working with the GM Jeremy Diem & owner Shane Hardin is awesome – they just want to keep doing great things for their community & that includes serving the best burgers in San Diego & supporting killer surf events. We couldn’t be more stoked to have them back!
