Encinitas, CA – August 13, 2012: The Arnette Cash Pot Surf Series returns to the East Coast this week for its final two stops. Taking place on Monday, August 13, at Florida’s Ponce Inlet and Friday, August 17, at the Outer Banks in North Carolina, the last two stops of the Cash Pot Surf Series are free to enter, with $3,000 in prize money up for grabs at each stop.
Arnette’s Cash Spot Surf Series events have been packed at every stop this year and are beach entry only. Spots for competitors are assigned on a first come, first serve basis, so anyone looking to surf in the Cash Pot should arrive to fill out their entry forms by 6:30 am or come with their form filled out already, downloadable from the Arnette Website at the following URL’s:

Held in conjunction with Transworld SURF, Arnette’s regional Cash Pot Surf Series has wound its way across the US, with six previous events in California, New Jersey and Hawaii. 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 stoked for last two stops of the Cash Pot to go down on the East Coast. The surfers out there always come out in force and the scene on the beach is super fun,” commented Brent Bearden, Arnette Team & Events Manager.
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.
