With the surf forecast on everyone’s radar with an incoming south swell just in time for the finals of the Hurley Pro, the third stop on the Get Stoked Tour got some glassy blue tarp barrels out in front of Almond Surfboards. Almond Surfboards and owner Dave Allee kindly hosted the pre-party for the Newport Beach stop by not only providing their parking lot for a tarp session but also kicked down a beautiful Sandia Fish that was raffled off by one lucky winner prior to the films rolling on the screen at the infamous Lido Theater. The popcorn machine was popping again with plenty of tasty treats from Honest Beverages, Popchips and Tropi-treats, everyone was amped up for Stoked and Broke.
Levi Prairie entertained the audience, again, with his pirate tunes followed by Jeremy Asher Lynch’s short, The Parting. Stoked and Broke drew more hoots, hollars, and cheers as Burch and Cy made their journey down the coast, surfing waves, and doing their thing.
