Quicksilver/ RedBull surf contest

Quicksilver/ RedBull surf contest

On July 15,2011 Santa Teresa saw a nice turnout for the 2011 Quicksilver/ RedBull  international surf competition. Top pros from mainly Latin america put on quite a display of modern day surfing in the very rippable waves in the 4-5 ft range. Quicksilver team-rider, Clay Marzo made an appearance and also competed.  Locals like Anthony Filigan were able to showcase their skills in front of hundreds of people. The prize purse was $20,000. I hear they might make it a annual event and that this contest was just testing the waters.
