It’s East Vs. West At Camp Pendleton Marines Surf Contest (Video)

Camp Pendleton Surfing Contest

Camp Pendleton Marines who went to boot camp at MCRD San Diego will compete against fellow Pendleton Marines who trained at Parris Island in this Saturday's "Red Bull Rivals" Night Surf Competition.

Fifteen surfers from each team will square off during the one-day event, which takes place at Camp Pendleton's Del Mar Beach. The action starts at 5:30 p.m. in the dwindling daylight hours. According to Surfwire:

[T]he competition will take place when the sun goes down, testing the Marines' night operations skillset, and providing an added challenge in judging the timing of the waves.

Only folks with base access can watch the contest. I've posted video of the 2011 "Red Bull Rivals" competition to give you a taste of what you can expect.
