The Quiksilver Tony Hawk Show Arrives In Paris November 20-21 to Kick off Quiksilver’s 40th Anniversary Festivities
Over 30 Global Quiksilver Surf, Skate and Snow Athletes Will Join the Celebration including Kelly Slater, Todd Richards, Travis Rice, Danny Garcia, Alex Olson, Jérémy Florès, Mathieu Crépel, Robby Naish and Roxy’s Lisa Andersen, Torah Bright and Kassia Meador.
This month Quiksilver announced its 40th anniversary celebration in Paris, November 20-21, 2009. The event will feature two days of skateboarding, music, art and fashion at the historic Grand Palais—culminating in a Saturday night finale featuring The Quiksilver Tony Hawk Show, followed by a concert with Dead By Sunrise and a late night with DJ Mix Master Mike.
This will be the first action sports event ever held inside the Grand Palais, with the largest vert ramp ever built in Europe lasting for two days. This is a rare and unique chance for pros and locals alike to skate inside one of the city’s massive historic monuments. The weekend’s anniversary will also include exhibition areas for art, music and cultural events. Special guest and renowned graffiti artist André will be giving the public an opportunity to watch the notorious artist work live at the event. Quiksilver has also assembled a 40 year fashion retrospective inside the venue.
In addition, The Tony Hawk Show is bringing friends such as skaters Andy MacDonald, Kevin Staab, Sandro Dias, Jean Postec, Sergie Ventura, Jesse Fristch, and four of the biggest names in international skateboarding will be our very special guests: Christian Hosoi, Daniel Cardone, Javier Mendizabal and Omar Hassan.
