In the 80’s and 90’s, the Bud Surf Tour was instrumental in the cultivation of many surfer’s careers – giving the athletes a platform and financial opportunity to chase their goals. Now, the Bud Light Lime Surf Series (BLLSS) will pay tribute to some of the Bud Tour icons with the “All Stars of the Bud Tour” heat taking place on the final day of the (BLLSS) projected for Sunday, May 29th at Church in San Onofre State Beach.
Four original Bud Tour athletes - Chris Brown, Jim Hogan, Pat O’Connell, and Vince De La Pena - will once again meet in the water. “The Bud Tour was a great experience for me and I'm excited to see Bud Light Lime get involved with this next generation of aerobatic surfers. I can’t wait to get out in the water with Pat, Chris and Vinnie” said Jim Hogan.
