Asia market grows with latest Quiksilver shop
Quiksilver & DC store grand opening party in Lippo Mall, Kemang
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 January, 2013 : - - Jakarta -- Despite the rain and flooding that has been paralyzing Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta, hundreds of extreme sports and music fans showed up for the Quiksilver and DC Grand Opening party at the Lippo Mall Kemang on Sunday, January 27th. The afternoon was full of fun and excitement that included skate and BMX demo’s, coaching clinics, jam sessions, poster signings with DC pro’s, and the grand finals of the Monster Bass competition, and more.
Set up in the Avenue of the Stars was a special skate and BMX area along with three display tents for showcasing the latest Quiksilver, Roxy and DC products. After a wet beginning the weather brightened up and the Monster Bass finalists took to the stage to rock out and wind up the crowd.
After their two-hour session it was on to the skate and BMX action, starting with the announcement of the launch of the new DC Trailer, which will be traveling around Indonesia this year as part of a nationwide DC tour. DC skate pro’s Pevi Permana and Deni TX joined DC BMX team pro’s Okke Oktavianus, Rizky Leonardo, Jujun Junaedy and Mathius for some demonstrations and coaching clinic sessions, before sitting down to sign posters for their fans. Skaters of all ages got a chance to have a jam session of their own on the ramps.
For the non-skaters there was Ken Block’s DC Dirt Showdown Xbox game, which challenged the gaming crew to some serious off-road racing. For the women there was the launch of the new Roxy Dare Yourself program, where they all had a blast getting their photos taken in the Roxy tent that was set up as a beach scene.
Roxy Dare Yourself is a global social media contest for the girls between the ages of 18 and 28, who are invited to submit either a 150 words essay together with three photos, or a one-minute video clip of themselves showing the world how theychallenge themselves and inspire others. 5 young women will ultimately be chosen as the “Dare Yourself” winners for 2013, and will embark on the adventure of a lifetime that includes an epic trip together with Roxy’s top pro female athletes, up to $5,000 USD in cash, and a Roxy clothing package. facebook.com/roxy.id
