“We have a lot of fun with this event,” said Josh Hansen. “It’s great to see surfers ride boards they’ve been eyeing for a while, and when they get that ride that feels just right, there’s nothing like it. We’re stoked to be part of that. Everyone’s in such a great mood when they’re surfing the best gear for nothing!”


Surfboards, winter 2013 wetsuits, fins and other accessories from Rusty, Lost, Bing, JS, FireWire, Billabong, Quiksilver, Xcel, Matuse, Patagonia and others will be on hand.
