Gul has announced that it will be the headline sponsor for the UK Pro surf tour Night Surf held for the first time at Fistral Beach Newquay on the 12/13/14 of June 2009. The event has been moved from Lusty glaze as the capacity was so high over the last three years that the event had to be ticketed. Fistral is the perfect venue to expand and make the event truly memorable. The night surf is the only event of it’s kind in Europe and attracts the best British surfers and many international competitors. If there is any surf event to put in your calendar this year the Gul Night Surf is the one!.
Set over three days and two nights the event will hold Men’s, Women’s and Longboard as well as the Grom tour and the addition of a SUPB (Stand up paddle board) competition sponsored by Custard Point Longboards. There will be beach games including beach volley ball, and product test centres throughout the weekend. The closing party will be on the Saturday night with a firework display and live music.
“We are delighted to be putting on the Gul night surf. We started life back in 1967 on Fistral beach, and we are very proud to be hosting what is set to be the biggest Surf event on the UK Pro surf tour on our home break. This year we are concentrating on new product and confirming our position as the UK’s leading wetsuit brand, and the Night surf is the perfect complement to our continued involvement in the Surf Market. We are now the longest sponsor of the UK Pro surf tour and it is very important to us that we can continue our support” Jake Patterson (Gul Brand Manager)
Dave Reed director of UK Pro Surf Tour said “We would like to thank Gul for coming in at the last moment to sponsor this event and keep one of the most popular events on the tour running. Also we would like to thank the other sponsors: Fistral Blu, The Beach Night Club, Anne’s Cottage, Custard Point Surfboards, the National Surfing Centre Complex and Nick Bryant. Without their support and sponsorship the event would undoubtedly not have taken place this year”. Adding “This tour event has achieved its popularity thanks to the support and sponsorship of Fat Face and Lusty Glaze Adventure centre. A new chapter is now opening with new sponsors, a new venue and a new direction”.
