Now in it’s sixth consecutive year! The Revolt Summer Surf Series is a San Diego based surfing competition dedicated to providing a stage for both male and female surfers (professional & amateur) to perform in their sport and be recognized for their achievements. For the past 5 summers, Revolt In Style Magazine has been dedicated to the establishment and development of a grassroots Pro Am Surf Series and ‘Green’ Beach Festival, supported by surfers and media from around the globe.
Four events are held at beautiful Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach through out the entire summer season. This platform has allowed the RSSS to help talented surfers advance their skills in a safe and positive competition for- mat, while also providing a highly visible, family friendly and eco-friendly setting for all our sponsors and spectators. Not only are we building an event that focuses on the competition of surfing but also provides exposure for our sponsors and revenue for the surrounding businesses & beach communities.
Each summer we have partnered with the San Diego Lifeguard Associa- tion, LifeSaving Del Sur.org, Discover PB.org and other important com- munity organizations. We are privately insured and secure proper permits from San Diego Parks and Recreation for each event.

The RSSS offers four separate events with eight diferent divisions:
Men‘s Pro Am,
Grom’s (12 & under),
Stand Up Paddle (SUP) and new for this year: A SUP Youth division and The Rough Water SUP Race.
In 2012, the RSSS is expected to be even larger than previous years with more prize money, larger setups, live web casts & stronger media ties. The legendary gift bags awarded to all the top riders from each divi- sion are full of the finest surf gear & products provided by our sponsors. To date we have awarded our competitors over $200,000 in cash and prizes, including new surfboards, skateboards & bicycles.
Other elements, including a ‘Green’ beach fair, surfboard demo’s, live DJ’s, special celebrity appearances, raffles, giveaways & beach games, add to the family friendly, festival atmosphere.
Partners like The Surfrider Foundation, San Diego Coastkeepers, The Progress Project, and Buster Biofuels help raise ocean, coastal, and en- vironmental awareness at each event. We have eliminated the use of plastic and styrofoam containers for food & beverages and repurpose our advertising banners each season. Onsite activation with eco friendly products, beach clean-ups and recycling programs at each event is not only smart, but sends a great message. We care!
Held at Crystal Pier the same day as the Annual Pacific BeachFest. The BeachFest is the annual signature end-of-summer festival that attracts an estimated 75,000+ people. Live Music & DJ’s perform on three different stages while Surfing, Skateboarding, Running and Volleyball competitions run simultaneously. Hundreds of product and food vendor displays help create an amazing backdrop for our final surf event of the season. This is an exciting addition to the RSSS event plan, not only for our competitors but also for our sponsors. In 2012 we expect to attract 100,000 people to the combined events.
