Afternoon! Here’s some little bits of news from the past few weeks from the world of Surfing!
We’re good to you aren’t we…
Check out some news below
So, top surfer Jon Jon Florence is apparently dating country-pop singer Taylor Swift! He’s the latest in a line of famous names to be linked to the singer following on from Harry Styles and a load of other people I don’t think I’ve heard of.
According to the Daily Mail, the pair have been texting and when asked on Aussie TV, Jon Jon said “Uh, I’m not supposed to comment about that”.
Jon Jon has been surfing since he was a youngster. He was (until recently) sponsored by O’Neill, and you can buy some of their gear here at Urban Surfer!
We look forward to a song been wrote about him in the future 😉
Enever joins Billabong
Laura Enever has a new sponsor! As well as making her mark in surfing (Laura finished 10th in the 2011 womens world tour and 8th in 2012!), Laura has also become a huge player in the world of fashion.
Anyway! Billabong is the latest to see the appeal of Laura and have agreed a sponsorship deal with her!
Of the deal, Laura said “I really love what Billabong represents. My other passion besides surfing is the fashion world and it’s clear Billabong is all about taking high fashion to the beach.”
You know.. you can buy Billabong here at Urban Surfer.
Lowers Pro Prime Event Postponed
Event news! Unfortunately, this years Lowers Pro prime event has been postponed. Nike, the events main sponsor for the last 5 years, suddenly withdrew from the surf industry last year.
Scheduled to run from 30th April to 4th May, organisers were left with no choice but to postpone the event as an alternative sponsor could not be found.
It’s not all bad! Lowers Pro will be back as normal next year! Phew!
So, that’s all folks!
