Arnette's Cash Pot Surf Series Comes Back To Oahu On July 7
July 5, 2012: The Arnette Cash Pot Surf Series has been winding its way across the US this year and its next stop is at the famed Ala Moana Bowls off Oahu's South Shore on Saturday, July 7. Held in conjunction with TransWorld SURF, Cash Spot Surf Series events are free-to-enter and beach entry only, with spots given out on a first come, first serve basis. As all previous Cash Pot events have been filled to capacity, anyone looking to surf the event should arrive ready to fill out their entry forms by or come with the form already filled out (downloadable at arnette.com/blog/acpss-ala-moana2012).
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.
"It's great to be heading out to Ala Moana for the Hawaii stop of the Cash Pot. The left there is awesome and when the swell comes in, it definitely goes off," commented Brent Bearden, Arnette Team & Events Manager. "I'm stoked Arnette is able to be at Ala Moana this time around, supporting the local scene and kicking down $3,000 to rippers all day long."
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.
