We’re only weeks away from one of the most anticipated freeride events of the year – the 2015 OZ Surf Slam – and already the tension is mounting. As part of the 2015 IFWA World Tour, the OZ Surf Slam (not to be confused with the annual Blowsion Surf Slam happening every September in Pacific City, Oregon), the event has drawn the “attention of some of the world’s best riders including Pierre Maixent, Mark Gomez, Bruno Jacob, Jake Bright, Mick Anthony, Mitchell Young, Nick Barton, and Brandon Lawlor to name a few,” event promoter Jason Barry wrote.
Barry continued, “This will see the event extended from a two day event as originally posted to include Thursday the 19th in addition to Friday 20th and Saturday 21st of March,” which is really exciting. Of course, The Watercraft Journal will be there to provide our tens of thousands of monthly readers a full recap and photo gallery thanks to our own exceptionally talented Andrew Donovan. But there’s a catch: the OZ Surf Slam is still in need of sponsorship help.
Events like these aren’t cheap and drumming up enough prize money and goodies for the winners can be equally costly. Below is an invitation to all you manufacturers, builders and other core companies who want to continue to see this sport blossom to reach out and help support Barry and his organization.
Here’s the original press release:
To Whom it May Concern,
After exceeding all expectations in 2014, the Sunshine Coast Jet Sports Club is proud to announce that the Surf Slam is back!!
I am also proud to announce that the event has gone International with the inclusion of the first round of the IFWA’s World Tour.
2015 will see the event returning to the highly successful Alex Surf Club in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. This venue makes for a smooth event, where the riders can park their car and walk to their accommodation, the event site, the after party, food and refreshments and the sponsors had an elevated grassed platform to display and promote their product.
We appreciate your time and consideration of the attached sponsorship proposal. We hope to finalize the sponsorship list by the 2nd of March at 10am.
If you would like to discuss the proposal any further or if you have any questions please contact me without hesitation.
