To give back to the shops that support it, Redsand has been putting on a series of surf contests between its dealers for the last year or so now. Each retailer gets to surf against others from its areas for bragging rights and prizes.
According to Redsand Marketing Director Devin Johnson, the company has been holding the shop series for a while now, and has some more coming up next month. The good-vibes event supplied by Redsand include a nice tent on the beach with a DJ, food, and a little lounge for everyone to hang out in. Then the three-person shop teams hit the water and battle it out for bragging rights and prizes that include a first-place 250-dollar travel voucher.
The latest shop-versus-shop contest was held in Ocean City, Maryland, where a bunch of out-of-staters crashed the party to take the top honors. The winners were 7th Street Surf Shop in New Jersey.
There will be more upcoming contests in October. On October 14, Redsand will host one at Trails at San Onofre for its Orange County stores. On October 21, it will have one at Torrey Pines State Beach for its San Diego County accounts.
