Boardriders TV Episode Seven – Presented By Virgin Mobile In Association with Resolution Health

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 May, 2007 : - - Top notch skate action, surf profiles, and some of the highest scoring WCT heats ever filmed are all part of the mix in the latest instalment of  Boardriders TV, brought to you by Invisible Cactus Entertainment. We bang straight into the North Shore Bowl Jam at Cholo’s Bowl in Hawaii.

Legendary skaters like Jeff Grosso, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Bob Burnquist, Rune Glifberg, Christian Fletcher and Chris Senn are all in attendance. This event has no judges present and it is up to the skaters themselves to pick a winner at the end of the Night - a liberating new way to run a skate event. This inaugural event was won by Rune Glifberg.

Jeremy Flores, winner of the 2006 WQS, white-hot surfer and all round good guy gets the profile cameras on him this episode. Originally from Reunion Island, Flores is the youngest surfer to qualify for the coveted WCT and is only the fourth European to qualify. Witness some excellent footage of Flores ripping up the reef passes at his adopted home in New Caledonia, and listen to his somewhat remarkable story.

Then it’s back to skating, with some smooth street skating from the streets of Europe. It’s the DC Street Skateboarding Trip, and Ruben Garcia from Spain and Manuel Margreiter from Austria are the stars of this section.

We finish off with a few snippets from the epic final day of the Quiksilver Pro WCT Gold Coast, with some excellent rides in the cooking surf of Snapper Rocks. The waves are ridiculous, the best surfers in the world are all intent on winning the event, and some of the highest scoring heats ever go down. The Quiksilver Pro WCT Gold Coast is always one of the most exciting events on the tour as the waves are always firing, it’s the first event of the year and everyone wants a good start.
