Gibson Rocks Quiksilver British Surf Championships
Over the Bank Holiday weekend, Quiksilver are proud to present the Quiksilver British Surf Championships at Fistral Beach, Newquay, England. The annual event will be held over the Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 28th to Sunday 29th August 2010) where the best surfers across Britain, including Russell Winter (former European champion), Alan Stokes (U.K. Tour Champion), Toby Donachie (former British champion) and current British junior champ Luke Dillon, will be competing to win titles in the British Men’s Open. Gibson Guitar has once again generously donated a Gibson Les Paul Studio guitar as the champion’s trophy.
This year, Quiksilver’s presence, down on Fistral Beach, will be joined by Gibson Guitar, Roxy, DC and Monster Energy Drinks. DC & Monster Energy will keep the crowds entertained between heats with demos on the Monster Energy skate ramp. Demoing for the weekend will be DC, Monster Energy, and Quiksilver Pro Skaters, including Pete King, Sam Bosworth, Dan McDermott, Sam Pulley and John Bell.
After the success of Quiksessions during Quiksilver’s surf contest last year, Gibson Guitar and Quiksilver are searching again for local bands to play live at the Gibson Guitar Tour Bus and Quiksessions Stage during the Quiksilver British Surf Championships at Fistral Beach. All local bands and solo artists can win the chance to play live on Fistral Beach on both Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th August. We’re looking for up to six bands, and the best performance over the weekend will win £1000 of Quiksilver products. Local Bands should call 0207 436 6800 to register (selected bands will be contacted five days before the event).
To complete the Gibson experience, the Gibson Guitar Tour Bus (one of only four in the world) will be parked exclusively on Fistral Beach over the Bank Holiday weekend and will provide a media hub, hospitality and a place to relax for Gibson's special guest artists, bands and all participating surfers.
This will be the first time that a British Surf Contest will be streamed live to the iPhone over a cellular network. So you can catch all the live action at www.tiger24.com or on your iphone at www.tiger24.com/iphonelive.
