Surfers From SoCal And Across The World Line Up For The Ventura Stop Of Arnette's Cash Pot Surf Series

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA – March 27, 2012: The third stop Arnette's 2012 Cash Pot Surf Series went down this weekend at Pipes in Ventura County. This was the first time Arnette has been up to Ventura for a Cash Pot and the VC boys did not disappoint. When surfers hear Arnette is giving out $3,000 in cash at a contest without entry fees, they will show up from everywhere. Guys from Arnette's surf team came out in force for the event, represented by Newport's Chase Wilson, Michael Dunphy from VA Beach and even Otis Carey from Australia, who was in town as part of a US surf tour.

Prize money in the Arnette Cash Pot Surf Series is given out to the winners of each heat, not just the guys in the finals, making the event more appealing to surfers whose breaks lie outside the local area.

Results for the Pro-Am and Juniors division are as follows.
1: Cory Arrambide
2: Chase Wilson
3: Kellen Ellison
4: Mike McCabe

1: Kanoa Igarashi
2: Jake Kelly
3: Frank Curren
4: Takumi Yasuiz
