The AVP was dead and gone for the last two years. Bankruptcy stopped the tour in its tracks. But with the help of new ownership under billionaire Donald Sun and a partnership with the Surfrider Foundation the AVP is back. Santa Barbara is only the second stop for the new look AVP and all of the games greats, including Kerri Walsh Jenning and Todd Rogers, are on the sand to support the comeback.
