The Arnette Cash Pot Surf Series returns to the mainland this weekend at Santa Cruz' Steamer Lane on July 14. Free to enter and with $3,000 up for grabs at each stop, Arnette's Cash Spot Surf Series events have been packed at every tour stop this year. Since the events are beach entry only, with spots given out on a first come, first serve basis, anyone looking to surf in the Cash Pot should arrive to fill out their entry forms by 6:30 am or come with form filled out already, downloadable from arnette.com/blog/acpss-steamer-lane2012
Held in conjunction with Transworld Surf, Arnette's regional Cash Pot Surf Series travels 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 psyched Arnette is coming back to Steamer Lane again. The locals here live surfing and there's always a great turnout in the water," commented Brent Bearden, Arnette Team & Events Manager. "There are only a few Cash Pots events left and the turnout has been solid at each stop. I can't wait to see what goes down at this one."
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 the individual heat winners.
The remaining 2012 Arnette Cash Post Surf Series dates and locations include:
* 7/14 – Steamer Lane, Santa Cruz, CA
* 8/13 – Ponce Inlet, FL
* 8/17 – Outer Banks, NC
