On November 1, it all fires up. Previously a stop in O’Neill’s six-star series of events, which also included places like Canada, New Zealand and Scotland, the Santa Cruz Cold Water Classic has now been upgraded to a World Tour event, to celebrate 60 Years of O’Neill in 2012. In nine days, Steamer Lane will light up. It’s been a long time since World Tour events have been served with as much pepper as they are right now, and honestly, who doesn’t love a little extra fire? Here’s hoping for more passion, fury, tears and sizzle.
