The 2nd stop of Arnette's 2011 Cash Pot Surf Series has been moved to Prospect Street! The contest will still take place this Saturday (3/5), but instead of happening at Blackies as originally planned, it will now be held two miles North at Prospect Street where the swell is expected to be much better.
Contest check-in time is 6:30am on the beach, and entry forms can be downloaded at Arnette.com
With the first stop at Seaside Reef being a huge success and Cory Arrambide pocketing over $500, who will take the crown at Prospect? Come on out and show us what you got...remember, entry is free and a good time is guaranteed.
Arnette’s new regional surf series is free to enter and features seven contests throughout California, Hawaii, New Jersey, North Carolina and Florida. Competitors will be broken up into two divisions – Pro-Am and 16 & Under – with $2,500 in cash up-for-grabs at each event. Unlike most contests where only top finishers get paid, at the Cash Post Surf Series money will be awarded from heat one through the finals.
“We’re all about having a good time at Arnette, and we’re really excited about the Cash Pot Surf Series because it’s something new and different that’s bringing the fun back to surfing,” says Arnette Team and Events Manager Brent Bearden. “Not only is it going to be a blast, but it will give kids a bunch of chances to win killer prizes and money... Win your heat, get paid. Land a sick trick, get paid. Place well in your division, get paid. The cash is gonna be flowin’!”
At each contest, ASP judging criteria and interference rules will be in full effect with the first place finisher in the 16 & Under division taking home $250 and the winner of the Pro-Am division earning a cool $500.
