Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 January, 2009 : - - Casuarina Beach, NSW -- Internet based virtual surfing game, youRiding.com and ASP Australasia have joined forces to feature and promote 2 ASP Australasia 6 Star Prime World Qualifying Series events in 2009 as part of their interactive and popular online game.
youRiding.com will feature virtual contests where users can compete against fellow surfers from around the world to claim a virtual WQS victory.
During 2009 as the WQS rolls through the Australasian region, online players will be able to slip on the virtual reality competition singlet and wax up for a heat at Margaret River to do battle for the 6 Star Prime Rated Drug Aware Pro crown or paddle into perfection at Pasta Point in the Maldives for the SriLankan Airlines Pro in June.
It is a great addition to the Australasian WQS Tour that surfers and online gamers can now compete online to become virtual WQS event champions, emulating their heroes and idols.
"YouRiding.com is also promoting our WQS events to a wider audience stated ASP Australasia Tour Manager Glenn Best.
Likewise Thomas Casamayou from youRiding.com is excited about the partnership with ASP Australasia stating
For the 2009 edition of youRiding.com, we really wanted to go bigger and further in the fun, realism and addiction of our game.
This partnership with ASP Australasia really gives us that opportunity by allowing surfing enthusiasts to watch a major WQS event and play the youRiding virtual contest with friends on the same website.
We really hope that we bring more fun and interactivity to the surfer web experience.
There will be great prizes for the eventual virtual event winners and players can link direct to the official WQS event web pages for news updates, highlights, live scores and live action from Margaret River and the Maldives.
youRiding.com which is based in Europe, comprises over 350,000 users around the globe who regularly take to the virtual waves around the world.
