Hurley Announces Surf And Enjoy Tour

29-stop National Tour Brings Surfing and Fun to Kids and Families

| posted on May 22, 2014

Hurley announced a new national surf tour for kids, aimed at bringing excitement and energy into beach communities this summer.

With the help of athletes like Rob Machado, Lakey Peterson, Carissa Moore and Conner Coffin, the “Surf and Enjoy” Tour will make 29 stops – from California to the Eastern U.S. to Hawaii – hosting free surf events for kids 18 and under.

“Surf and Enjoy is what Hurley is all about,” said Hurley Marketing and Events Manager, Phil Bannan. “Emphasis on fun, growing the sport of surfing, and bringing the joy of surfing to kids around the world. Our goal is to breathe that mantra into communities from coast to coast.”

The tour events are all fun, no pressure – beginner to expert. Newbies can get pushed into waves by professional surfers, while those with more experience get a chance to compete.

Surf and Enjoy will run May 4 to August 9, with the help from sponsors FlexFit, Honda, Dragon, Futures, Bubblegum Surf Wax, Waterman’s, Rev’d, Obertos, Suja and Peace Tea. Snacks, sunscreen, goodie bags and prizes will be on hand for all participants.

Participants can enter to win the Grand Prize Sweepstakes – a trip to the 2014 Hurley Pro at Lower Trestles, held in September. Official rules can be found on hurley.com/surfandenjoy.
