AS crowds pull into PE in anticipation of the Billabong Pro, surfing fans will have the opportunity to meet some of their surfing heroes! The Oakley signing session will have some of the world’s top surfers signing autographs at Surf Centre, Walmer Park at 6:30pm on the 10th July 2009.
The six Oakley surfers at the signing will be Dave Weare, Greg Emslie, Adriano De Souza, Tom Whitaker, Dustin Barca and Shaun Joubert. Other draw cards include Jordy Smith sponsored by O’Neill and Bede Durbidge sponsored by Ocean Minded!
Adriano De Souza is a mighty force on the world stage and his competitive drive is second to none. Especially after Adriano claimed second position at the Hang Loose Santa Catarina Pro this weekend and now finds himself lying second on the ASP dream Tour rankings. Adriano is a born champion and his hunger for an ASP World Title is clear.
Dave Weare is one of 3 South Africans to qualify for the World Championship Tour (WCT) 2009; Davey is a highly progressive surfer, being one of the country’s best aerialists, as well as an obsessively motivated surfer and competitor.
Greg Emslie is our local hero another of the South African’s to qualify for the World Championship Tour (WCT) 2009. Greg is incredibly competitive and his surfing styles suits right hand point breaks like Supers in JBay - so look out for some impressive surfing from him!
Tom Whitaker boasts a style that features classic rail work as well as progressive fin-free manoeuvres; Whitaker has proven he has the goods to dissect all conditions with beautiful precision.
Dustin Barca is an ASP World Tour rookie. Dustin is known for massive airs and pulling into sick barrels and the Hawaiian will come out all guns firing on his maiden voyage on the ASP World Tour in 2009.
Shaun Joubert is the new up and coming local kid who recently won the Oakley Pro Junior South Africa Event and has a wildcard into the Billabong Pro JBay!
Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to meet your favourite surfers!
There will be OAKLEY giveaways and other surprises! See you there!
