Hurley’s 2012 Rip My Shred Stick Tour Prepares For Take-Off
30-stop surf contest/beach day allows for more fun at more beaches

(Costa Mesa, CA., May 14, 2012) Hurley’s world-famous Rip My Shred Stick Tour is back and ready to hit a beach near you. This year the tour has expanded from 18 stops to 30, effectively bringing the gift of surfing to more communities than ever before. Starting in Puerto Rico on June 2, and wrapping up in Oceanside on July 28, Rip My Shred Stick will reach hundreds of young surfers in a span of more than 10,000 miles. The inclusion of stops in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Camp Lejeune Marine base and two additional stops in the Great Lakes, along with the new 48-foot self-contained Shred Stick tour bus, will undoubtedly make this year the best yet. Rip My Shred Stick allows kids 16 and under to hang out with the Hurley team, test-drive their boards and compete in a no-pressure, all-fun surf event. “It’s not your typical contest,” says Hurley’s Core Accounts Marketing Manager Zach “Hula” Hartley, “it’s based on a fun scale rather than an experience scale. And that’s the most important part for me; that everyone wins and has a good time.” Thanks to our sponsors, all contestants will receive a goodie bag filled with prizes from: Spy, Futures, Waterman’s Sunscreen, Mophie, Freestyle, Stance, INT, GoPro and TransWorld SURF.

Along with a surf contest, participants will be treated to a post-event party with a video, photo slideshow, food, athlete meet-and-greets and more. For every $50 worth of Hurley product purchased at our participating retailers, you’ll receive a Supersuede Hurley boardshort or T-shirt to customize for free.

All entries to the Rip My Shred Stick events will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Events are free of charge. Sign up at your local participating retailer or on hurley.com/rmss.
