Conditions couldn't have been better for the finale of the Revolt Summer Surf Series this past weekend, in Pacific Beach, Calif. Surf Race to Victory was proud to be part of the series finale, as well as part of the first contest ever on south side of Crystal Pier. If the finale wasn't enough entertainment, the Pacific Beachfest was in full effect on the boardwalk with a great crowd of spectators taking in all the action of the events on the water.
Solid sets rolled in throughout the day, with waves at 2- to 4-feet. The small surf added more of a challenge to the Supcross event, which took the competitors in and out through the surf. The women kicked things off with a strong presence of competitive athletes and tight races in both heats. In the end, Hailey Harrison pulled off the win with a solid showing in the finals. Angela Jackson finished in second, with Alison Fullagar placing third.
The men took the stage following the ladies, and each heat was an intense battle. The heats saw one great race after the next, and the excitement carried through the day to the finals. Australian Jake Jensen dominated each of his heats, and continued his domination into the finals, taking first without question. Beau O'Brian took second, sealing up the top spots for the Australians, and Chuck Glenn finished in third with a tight race for fourth place just behind him. Victory team rider, Anthony Vela, who made it into the finals through the repechage heat, made it a photo finish for fourth, finishing only inches ahead of Maui's Zane Schweitzer.
"Everything went off without a hitch, one of the smoothest running events to date," said Victory's VP of Sales, Brian Richmond, who coordinated the Surf Race to Victory SUPCross with Victory's Parker McDonald. The combination of the Revolt Summer Surf Series with the Surf Race to Victory SUPCross Series, provided great entertainment across the board. With the Pacific Beachfest on the boardwalk it was a great chance for thousands of people to see the mix of the two sports and great performances by some of SUP's best.
