Kids surf contest

PENSACOLA -- Kids can surf for free any day at Pensacola Beach but it's not just any day they can surf with the pro's.

Hurley's professional surfers were on Pensacola Beach for the Rip My Shred Stick Tour today.

It's a free surf contest for kids 16 and younger. The winner was based on who had the most fun.

Kids got to hang out with the team and test ride their boards.

"It's just a really fun sport, really family centered. Its good to be out in the water, be in God's creation.
   
And, we're just excited to be a part of surfing. Only a surfer knows the feeling.

"It's hard to explain you just gotta catch that first wave."

The tour includes 24 stops on beaches throughout the country.  It will wrap up on July 20th.
