The Surf Ride $100,000 Freedom Pro-Am Surf Series by VANS wrapped up it’s inaugural season this past weekend at the Oceanside Pier in Southern California.

The 4 event series, designed to bring top pros and amateurs together at a single event, while benefiting a good cause did not disappoint.

“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.”
