The event, organized by New Jersey kingpin and contestant Sam Hammer, will also feature New Jersey surfers Andrew Gessler, Kevin Richards, Zack Humphries, Brendan Buckley, Matt Keenan, Randy Townsend, and Mike Gleason.
“Having the contest at night, and the beach packed with people, makes for a great stadium event to blast airs and just charge,” stated Sam Hammer, tow-at driver, contestant and contest organizer. “With $1,500 on the line, I know the crowd is going to be loud and guys are going to step up.”
The uniqueness of the setting and the talent organized for this special surf event will bring a great time to Seaside Heights, N.J. with thousands of people in attendance jockeying for a great seat.
“Supporting an event that brings the New Jersey surf community together is an easy decision,” said Billy Melnyk, senior brand manager of sponsor Seven Tiki Spiced Rum.
“The festival atmosphere and the energy surrounding the Nightriders will make this event memorable for years to come. It brings excitement to surfing in New Jersey”.
