“The Ultimate Surfer” is giving surfing fans some sweet experiences before the series premiere this summer on ABC! This past June, ABC kicked things off at the World Surf League’s Surf Ranch Pro event via an exclusive VIP lounge experience. The event took place in Lemoore, California, where the series was filmed. Invited guests were treated to authentic Hawaiian shave ice in a relaxing space that featured props from the set and an oversized art installation to enjoy while escaping the heat. Guests also received environmentally friendly Baggu gift bags featuring Ultimate Surfer branded towels and Outerknown surf wax. Series stars Kelly Slater, Joe Turpel and Malia Ward made appearances throughout the weekend.
The summer will continue to heat up when invited guests get a chance to walk down the blue carpet at the beautiful Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, California, to celebrate “The Ultimate Surfer” and “Bachelor in Paradise” premieres. The event will feature an exclusive first look at each series and include live entertainment, themed food, drinks and some tropical fun with stars from each series in attendance.
Sponsored by Heineken(R), the world-famous Santa Monica Pier will host “The Ultimate Surfer” adventure, a three-day pop-up experience. The weekend event will feature cast appearances, live music, daily surf lessons, a professional surfboard shaper, a silkscreen printing station, a custom Airstream photo experience, talent appearances, themed interactive games, free giveaways and much more.
