Green Day surprises guests at San Francisco Chapter's Rip Curl Pro Search Kick Off Party

Taken from the Surfrider HQ e-newsletter SOUP, circulated to readers today:

On November 1st, Surfrider Foundation and Rip Curl teamed up to host the Rip Curl Pro Search Kick Off Party in San Francisco, CA featuring lo-fi garage rocker Ty Segall and the recently reunited Kut U Up featuring Transworld SURF Editor-in-Chief Chris Cote. After an insane day of overhead, offshore surf at the opening day of the Rip Curl Search in San Francisco, things got even better when punk rock legends, and Bay Area locals Green Day showed up and surprised the crowd with a 16 song set. Green Day rocked the house for a solid two hours, previewed new songs and talked about the importance of protecting oceans, waves and beaches. In addition to being an awesome night, proceeds from the evening were donated to the Surfrider Foundation San Francisco Chapter and their campaign to Save Sloat.
