This is a festival you don’t want to miss if you can get the time off to head over to good old Newquay, England for the Rip Curl Boardmasters 2007 Festival. Loads of “action” sporting going on with the Menâ€™s World Qualifying Series (WQS) surf contest, a Womenâ€™s 5* WQS event, the Vans Summer Session Vert skate and Eastpak Miniramp contests happening all through the days between August 6th and 12th this year.
The purse is something you’d go after if you had the skills with $20,000 up for grabs this year. Terence Bougdour from France won last year making him the first skater to win the competition three years in a row. But he will have to keep up the pace as other European high-flyers are expected: JÃ¼rgen Horrwarth, Jocke Olsson, Jussi Korhonen (third in the world halfpipe rankings), Pete King and Dave Allen could be showing up with others to make it a skate competition to remember. An “Under 16” year old event is also being held to show off the big talents coming up in the scene right now. Besides the halfpipe skating there will be mini-ramp sessions, a street competiton and a BMX competition in the mini-ramp!
And if you think that’s all, there’s loads of bands to watch including Funeral for a Friend, Ash, The Subways, Guillemots and many more…and yeah, there is a bikini competition as well. Lots of fun happening….
