Flagler Beach, FL – The first contest for Season 2 of the Florida Board Riders’ FL Cup Series will be making waves in Flagler Beach on Saturday, October 9th beginning at 8 am and concluding at 3:30pm; with an after party celebration featuring awards and live entertainment provided by Kulcha Shok Musik.
What sets this event apart from most surf contests, as well as other sporting events, is that this is a team competition between cities and incorporates generations of surfers all on one team.
This first competition features the north division teams of Fernandina, Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, St Augustine, Flagler and Daytona Beach. This is the first of three stops where the teams will compete for the right to earn the two north seeds in the State Final against the South Division’s top two teams. Stop 2 will be November 20th in Jax Beach and Stop 3 January 22nd in St. Augustine.
Each team is composed of four surfers in seven divisions: Women, Under 14, 15-19, 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50+. Each division is given one hour in the water to relay their 4 surfers. The highest score earned by each surfer is then added to the team total. Adding to the pressure, surfers are only allowed to catch three waves and only their best wave counts.
This is a unique, high energy event that the public is encouraged to attend and support their local surf teams. The after party, to be held at Tortuga’s Kitchen and Bar, will also feature scholarship fundraisers, with the opportunity to win hand-painted surfboard art by Stewart Maxcy.
