EUGENE TAN & MARK OCCHILUPO PREPARE FOR THE QUIKSILVER PRO 2013
Land Rover is proud to present, once again, the Quiksilver Pro, taking place from Saturday 2nd March to Wednesday 13th March at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast. The world’s leading surfers will gather at the Quiksilver Pro 2013, a twelve day competition which attracts over 80,000 locals and viewer worldwide. Joining the action will be Eugene Tan, Australia’s favourite surf photographer, along with Australian surfing legend Mark Occhilupo.
In the lead up to the event, Eugene Tan will embark on a road trip from Sydney to the Gold Coast in a Land Rover Discovery 4. Dubbed the “Road to the Pro”, the journey starts at Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach on Monday 25th February. Throughout his northward trek, Eugene will capture iconic surf moments through photographs and video content, which will be posted on the Land Rover Australia Facebook page as it happens.
To ensure that everyone has the chance to share in the “Road to the Pro”, Eugene will encourage surfing enthusiasts to showcase their own photographic talents in a national competition focussed on capturing the essence of Land Rover and the spirit of the Quiksilver Pro, with photos that take viewers “above and beyond” the standard road trip.
Entrants are required to register via the Land Rover Australia Facebook page. There are a number of different photo briefs including: Iconic, Off Track, Energy and Control. Eugene will provide hits and tips along the way and the best shot will score a trip to attend the 2013 Quiksilver Pro, complete with a private surfing lesson with Mark Occhilupo.
Once Eugene arrives at Snapper Rocks on Friday 1 March, the competition will take a new tack, asking entrants to upload their best Quicksilver Pro moments. The best of these images will then be shown on screens in the Land Rover marquee on site at the Quiksilver Pro and on the Land Rover Australia Facebook page. From these, Eugene will select a winner each day, who will receive a Quiksilver surfboard signed by Kelly Salter.
