In total, 48 surfers will battle it out for a share of US$430,000 in combined prize money and the all-important lead in the race for the 2009 World Title. The Roxy Pro features the world’s top rated 18 female surfers.
General Manager of LG Electronics Australia, Mobile Communications, Nathan Dunn said, “Australian surfers compete on a world class level and the industries’ following through print, broadcast and particularly online media is significant. By partnering with this event, LG Mobile aims to reach the associated tech savvy youth market.”
LG Mobile will have a strong presence at the event with a 10m x 10m interactive marquee featuring the latest handsets, prize giveaways and a live feed of all the action at the Quiksilver Pro 2009.
In addition, customers who purchase an LG Renoir between 1st January – 20th February 2009, can visit a dedicated microsite and complete an entry form telling LG how, in 25 words or less, they would capture the Quiksilver pro experience on their LG Renoir.
The most creative entry as judged by an independent panel, will win a trip for two to the Quiksilver Pro event where the winners will meet the ASP World Champion surfer Kelly Slater and receive $500 spending money. Ten runner’s up will receive $100 Quiksilver vouchers.
