Event number one of the Surf Ride Pro-Am Series featured amazing surfing by the likes of Pro winner Chris Waring-who, along with Timmy Reyes, Jesse Merle-Jones and Micah Byrne battled it out in a final that could best be described as “electric”.    Waring, who’s been on a competitive roll in 2010, walked with a cool $5,000 for an afternoons worth of work that was just a short drive from his Huntington Beach home.

“The vision for the surf series has revolved around providing an exceptional contest designed for both pros and family division competitors while benefiting a great local cause.  Watching the groms interact and compete along side some of their surfing mentors was not only unique, it undoubtedly raised the level of their surfing- which will further equip them as they prepare for their own competitive careers.”  Contest Director Chris Williams.
