2005 CORNISH AND OPEN SURF CONTEST
WORLD OCEANS DAY SEES ALOHA JOIN SAS FOR THE 2005 CORNISH AND OPEN SURF CONTEST
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 June, 2005 : - - With today being World Oceans Day, Aloha has announced a stepping up of its UK sponsorship program by joining forces with Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) to deliver the 2005 Cornish Open the longest running and greenest surf contest in the UK.
In keeping with Aloha Australias global push, sponsorship has been at the forefront of the companys marketing strategy, with recent head-to-toe signings of Richie Lovett - WCT veteran, and Big Wave free surfer - Mark Mathews. Alohas support for the local and grass roots surfing contest in Australia has seen co-sponsorship of the 2005 Jim Beam National Tag Tournament and the ever-growing Aloha Hornet contest that has become a must do event for any aspiring grommet on the junior pro series.
Aloha is delighted to be part of the UK grass roots surfing movement and to be involved in what is the year on year longest running UK surf contest.
Aloha Surf International Managing Director and ex-Cornish resident - Greg McCarry said: Its great to be involved with this event, it has such history and has seen so many UK and international stars compete at various times. It is equally exciting to be involved with the SAS, who have championed the very successful clean beach and water campaign over the past 15 years and which has been incredibly beneficial to all UK surfers.
Richard Hardy, SAS Campaigns Director said: Were delighted to have Alohas support for what is the most environmentally friendly surf contest on the UK surf circuit. The contest is a big favourite for the UKs top surfers and we hope this year will see it blessed with clean, green waves.
With Aloha Europes base being part of the Cornish landscape, (the original site of the SAS HQ) this event is a comfortable fit, both culturally and geographically - along with committed expectations, Aloha views this sponsorship as the beginning of a long term involvement.
Equally, Aloha is pleased to support and be involved with the eco principles of the SAS, and looks forward to the 2005 Cornish Open being the greenest event ever. The contest will run at Porthtowan beach, Cornwall from 12th 14th August.
