Best Surfer Party Caps Off Best Quiksilver-Roxy Open 2010 Event in Bali 

Best Surfer Party Caps Off Best Quiksilver-Roxy Open 2010 Event in Bali

PRESS RELEASE from Surf line

Capping off Quiksilver's Best Surf Comp was their Best Surfer Party on Saturday night November 6 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Hard Rock Café on Kuta Beach in Bali that got started around 9 pm and wrapped up just before 2 am.

Julian Wilson's "Scratching the Surface" movie, a Roxy Short-Short competition, Quiksilver-Roxy fashion show, the Quiksilver and Roxy Open surfing awards presentation, and the pumping live rock music of I AM Giant were on the agenda for the waiting crowd, who were amped and ready to party thanks to sponsors Jim Beam and Heineken.

First up to wow the audience were 10 beautiful women vying for the Roxy Short-Short title. The judges had some tough calls to make for sure, but after two rounds they came to agree that 17-year-old Dian Juwita Fatmala was the perfect choice. She won cash and Roxy products for her turns around the bartop and got heaps of attention from the boys lined up at the bar trying to get as close as possible to her.

In between rounds of the Roxy Short-Short competition, Quiksilver and Roxy's latest and greatest fashions were paraded around the bartop with some super hot models showing them off.

Next was the Quiksilver Open and Roxy Open 2010 surfing awards presentation, so MC's Jake "the Snake" Paterson and Tipi Jabrik called the Master's, Women's, and Open Division finalists up to the bar top and presented them with their trophies and winner's checks. An additional award that was given was the Lines Magazine Air Show prize of Rp 1 million to Raditya Rondi.

Before moving over to the Hard Rock Café, a special announcement was also made regarding the results of the Quiksilver Big Sale that was held earlier in the day at the Quiksilver office on Jalan Legian in Kuta.

From 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, Quiksilver, Roxy and DC products were sold for 90% off retail price and the proceeds given to SurfAid International to help with their aid work in the Mentawai Islands tsunami and given to IDEP Foundation to those affected by the Merapi Volcano in the Jogjakarta area. At last count the sale raised a whopping Rp 121 million (over $13,000 USD), for the victims.

And then it was time to shift into high gear and start rocking into the night with the London-based band I Am Giant, a talented quartet of musicians that are Quiksilver's Ambassadors for Europe, playing in countless festivals and events like the recent Quiksilver Pro in Biarritz, France. Their music is also on many extreme sports DVD's including "Cloud 9 Movie" the Kelly Slater story.

So needless to say, the crowd got their share and more of fine musical entertainment, as well as dancing and drinking and all that goes along with a Quiksilver Best Surfer Party night at the Hard Rock Café.

The Quiksilver Open, Roxy Open, and Best Surfer Party were presented by Jim Beam, supported by Roxy, DC, Hard Rock Hotel, Hard Rock Café, Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia and Heineken, with media partners TRAX, FHM, Fitness, Men's Fitness, Juice, Area, SurfTime, Lines, Coca-Cola Indonesia Surfing Championships, and RVM.
