Check out some of our updated athlete bios on the SURFERS page. We’ve got some epic new photos and bios of past standouts like Randy Townsend, Jeremy Johnson, Cam Richards, and the rest of the boys. With Pacifico coming onboard this year and upgrading the Pro to an ASP World Qualifying Series event, we expect to see some big name surfers from around the world registering for the Belmar Pro to collect some qualifying points. The last time it was ASP sanctioned, Shaun Cansdell took the thing and wound up qualifying for the elite WCT a year later.
We are stoked to announce our Belmar Pro Amateur event is back on for Sept 6th & 7th! More details, registration links, etc coming soon! Stay tuned.
All of us involved with the Belmar Pro wish to take a moment to officially welcome our new main event sponsor, Pacifico Clara Beer. We are looking forward to a new and exciting year for the Belmar Pro as we have passed a milestone in our event last year with our 10th Anniversary! Pacifico, is a perfect fit, having been the first “surfer’s beer”. From their website (http://www.discoverpacifico.com):
“In the early ’70s, surfers from Southern California traveled down the rugged Baja coast, exploring the breaks along the way. During these journeys, they often stopped by tiny cantinas where locals introduced them to Pacifico. Over time, the surfers began bringing cases of Pacifico back to the U.S., making them the beer’s first importers.”
Just to give everyone a quick update: After many great years as the Fosters Belmar Pro, we’d like to welcome our new main overall event sponsor Pacifico Clara Beer to the Belmar Pro family! In addition to new support, our main Mens event has been upgraded to 1-Star ASP rating. That said, we are excited for this new change following last year’s 10th anniversary and anxiously looking forward to another year of great action!
Stay tuned to both our main website, and also follow our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds for updates, and other information and news that will become more frequent now that we are closing in this year’s event!
Huge thanks to everyone who supported the Foster’s Belmar Pro this year. Filmed and edited by Max Korn. Music by Coasta.
