Kelly Slater set for Sydney!
World-class surfers Kelly Slater, Taj Burrow and Owen Wright will be
busting out their best moves for the Boost Mobile SurfSho presented by Samsung, taking place on Bondi Beach from 12th to 14th March 2010.
The first international surfing competition to take place on Bondi Beach in over 20 years, the
three-day event will see the most exciting aerial surfers from across the globe competing for a
$30,000 prize on Bondi’s famous waves.
Nine time World Champion Kelly Slater said “It’s been a long time between drinks for a contest at
Bondi, since ’88. I like Bondi a lot, it’s cool. It’ll be fun to be there and have a contest. It doesn’t
sorta happen there very much. Usually its Rod Kerr running around the beach in his Speedos. But the rest of us are going to show up and wear our trunks. We’ll see you there.”
The Boost Mobile SurfSho is also the first-ever surfing event at Bondi to be sanctioned by the Association of Surfing Professionals and is expected to attract more than 40,000 spectators
including 13,500 from inter-state and overseas.
Alongside the spectacular surfing action, the Boost Mobile SurfSho will feature a free
entertainment program, with Beautiful Girls headlining the live music action on Sunday afternoon.
Athlete signing sessions, giveaways and loads of other beach activities will provide fun for
spectators of all ages.
The Boost Mobile SurfSho will run from 8am to 5pm each day, kicking off with the Junior Surf Sho
on Friday 12 March. The weekend will see the world’s best compete in the Surf Sho Open and
main SurfSho events, a celebrity surfing competition to raise money for charity and a jet ski tow-in
