STOP #1 of the CHEVROLET REVOLT SUMMER SURF SERIES 10.0 – PIER II PIER – PRO AM presented by Hodad’s Burgers – attracted surfers from around the globe & saw some of the best conditions yet this summer at San Fernando Ct. The heats were packed full & the competition fierce in the 4-5 foot SSW swell

The large swell and high temperatures attracted thousands to the beach and boardwalk area on June 18. Brazil, Argentina, Japan & South Africa were just some of the countries represented at the event. The U.S. lineup was impressive with names like Johnny Norris, Jay Christenson, Jacob Zekely and Doug Van Mierlo stepping up to defend the local breaks.

Brazil was well represented by athletes traveling to California for a variety of competitions including the Volcom Global Championships at lower Trestles the week before. Victor Bernardo, Gabriel Andre and Pedro Todaro were just some of the top Brazilians competing. Felipe Toledo was in attendance, offering advice and support to his fellow countrymen. Ultimately Victor Bernardo took home top honors in the men’s Pro Am division.

Chevrolet was busy the entire day showcasing the all new Chevy Colorado / Shoreline Edition to interested athletes & beach-goers – the Shoreline is the ultimate truck for southern California surfing & action sport enthusiasts – and the official vehicle of the 2016 RSSS.

A quick online registration gave 18+ attendees & athletes an opportunity to win a brand new custom shaped longboard from Gordon & Smith. Chevrolet and RVLT Surf have teamed up with G&S to create 7 custom surfboards for the Chevrolet RSSS Surfboard Sweepstakes – one board will be awarded to an extremely lucky attendee at each of the 5 events this summer.

Each board is hand shaped by legendary shaper/surfer Kevin Connelly with custom laminates featuring Chevrolet / RSSS / Gordon & Smith branding. The new model ‘HoverCraft’ noserider is like no other & designed specially for G&S’s “Kurrently Classic” Collaboration with Kevin Connelly. Caroline Walker won the first Chevrolet RSSS Surfboard Sweepstakes – valued at $1200.00.

Surfers compete for their share of the $10,000.00 cash prize purse, custom trophies, audio gear new boards, wetsuits, sunglasses & surf gear from our sponsors – plus gift cards for the best burgers in San Diego.. Hodad’s Hamburgers!

Exotic Surf trips will be awarded to the Pro Am division winners at the final RSSS PRIME event. Destinations include Waidroka Bay Resort in Fiji, Scorpion Bay Hotel in Cabo San Lucas and a Nicaraguan surf adventure (destination TBA soon). Each trip includes a week long stay (food, lodging & transport) for two. A local ‘Stay-Cation’ weekend at the Newly Remodeled Inn At Sunset Cliffs will also be awarded.

TO BE ELIGIBLE – surfers need to compete in at least two of the four events leading up to the Battle At Beachfest – RSSS PRIME event & season finale on October 1, 2016. This event runs during and alongside Pacific Beachfest – a massive festival that attracts an estimated 70,000 people to the beach & boardwalk area.
