“California has a rich history of stellar surfing and the Surf Ride series is our way to support the many local and international pros who call the Golden State home,” shared Surf Ride event director Chris Williams.

Williams added, “Having the groms, and other family divisions allowed the amateur competitors a front row look at where many of them are aspiring to take their surfing.  The prize money, ASP judges and all the other details made it an amazing series and we look forward to this series gaining momentum in the years to come.”

    my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
