The RIPCURL Seach event in San Francisco is set to get going at the start of next month and we are for sure feeling the hype and buzz out there from a global audience.
WHY SAN FRANCISCO?
Ripcurl marketing manager Dylan Slater stated "Sometimes we forget that what we are searching for is right in our back yard, and thats what San francisco is all about.We also wanted to show the grittier side of the Search. It's not all about tropical elements and Indonesia. This event is about the worlds best surfers versus the elements. The potential for ocean beach is for big,perfect A-frames. And we wanted to see the Search interpreted in this completely new, different, and lively environment."
We found this video of Ocean Beach looking very contestable..... Lets hope its big and gnarly for these guys...
