The first east coast stop of the Arnette Cash Pot Surf Series is going down at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ. With support from TransWorld SURF, the event will take place on Saturday, April 21. Cash Spot Surf Series events are beach entry only, with spots given out on a first come, first serve basis. All previous Cash Pot events have been filled to capacity, so Jersey rippers and others from the surrounding areas should plan on being at the beach by 6:30 am for signup.
Arnette's regional Cash Pot Surf Series is made up of free-to-enter events taking place throughout California, New Jersey, Hawaii, Florida and North Carolina. It features two divisions at each stop – Pro-Am and 16 & Under – with $3,000 in cash up-for-grabs at each event. Unlike many surf contests where just the top finishers get paid, the Cash Post Surf Series awards monetary prizes to the winners of each heat.
"I'm stoked we're heading back to Jersey with the Cash Pot. We have $500 more to give out this time and the east coasters always bring the heat when we come to town," commented Brent Bearden, Arnette Team & Events Manager. "With Cash Pot, you don't have to make it to the finals to go home with cash. Because we've got money set aside for the winners of each heat, not just the finalists, it's been fierce at every stop this year."
ASP judging criteria and interference rules will be in full effect during the Cash Pot Surf Series. The first place finisher in the 16 & Under division will receive $250, the winner of the Pro-Am division brings home $500 and additional prize money will be going to heat winners.
