Come watch the first ever North Shore vs. South Shore, one-day, high-speed comp at Sandy Beach. The best surfers in Hawaii will go head-to-head to win bragging rights and the other teams' boards. KaiBorg Garcia and friends will judge which shore owns the surf.
Red Bull Rivals is a one day surf event pitting Oahu’s legendary shores (North Shore vs. South Shore) against each other in a head to head surf competition for ultimate island bragging rights.
To keep things fair, the event will be held on the Eastside of Oahu at Sandy Beach (Neutral Territory). No surf event has been held at this popular surf hangout location since the Gotcha Pro back in the Early '80s.
Teams will compete for:
-Each others' surfboards (used in competition) instead of a traditional purse (similar to racing for pink slips)
-Territory advantage in next years competition
-The ultimate surfing bragging rights
Ten surfers for each team were chosen by online voting (see rosters below); each team must have at least 1 girl and 2 groms (17 or under).
A “ringer” will be allowed to be a part of each team and does not have to be disclosed until day of competition (this can be any surfer from anywhere in the world).
Team Captains will be chosen by each team
A best of 5 “Roshambull” (Rock, Paper, Scissors) will determine honors (who surfs first)
-Honored surfer will choose competitor
-Surfers will battle head-to-head in 20 ten-minute heats. Judges will determine who surfed the best and noted shore will receive a point
-There will be a “halftime” after the 10th heat to let each team re-group and strategize
