Quiksilver Bradley Surfboards accelerate up the ratings!
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 November, 2008 : - - Surfers around the globe are surfing better than ever on the new Christiaan Bradley shaped Quiksilver Surfboards. Based in France, Bradley has had a busy season with 22 of the top 45 surfers in the world filling out order forms in his shaping bay at Euroglass, Hossegor.
The world's best surfers have been touring events around the globe and are now pulling in big results on their new boards. It's a win win situation for the surfers like Jeremy Flores, Miky Picon, and Dan Ross who all rode Bradley boards in Brazil to reach their career best results of second, third and fifth respectively.
Jeremy is now feeling right at home among the Top 10 and has always worked with the shaping team at Quiksilver Surfboards for his equipment. Miky needed a big result to secure his spot on next year's ASP World Tour and has been working more than anyone with Bradley to create the best possible equipment.
His semi final result jumped him from 26th up to 18th in the world ratings, meaning he has almost certainly secured requalification for next year. Also scoring points and prizemoney on his Bradley board was Brazilian Wiggoly Dantos who claimed a 6 star WQS victory in his home country.
In European waters, Dan Ross won the WQS in pumping waves in the Canaries. Glenn Hall won the Quiksilver 3 Degrees UKPST event in the cold water of Portrush, Northern Ireland also on his favourite Bradley 5'9" CB1. The test pilots are proving that the boards work for every type of surfer in all types of waves.
While Quiksilver send Christiaan to Australia to spread his influence over the winter months, Bradley boards will be available in Quiksilver Boardrider stores throughout Europe for Christmas. The new boards will be in the racks alongside the already established Quiksilver shaping team of Warner, Grace, Anderson and Mark Phipps.
Mark has also had major success with his shapes this season. Nic Muscroft won the 6 Star Canaries event and Tim Boal the 5 Star Zarautz event riding Mark boards. The victory helped Tim seal his qualification for next years ASP World Tour. If you are looking for something else unique for your Christmas present then Mark Phipps has been working on a new Fibre Flex model which is proving to be a hit in the lineups of France and Australia.
