QUIKSILVER King of Aviones, Puerto Rico – Oct 31 & Nov 1

Quiksilver has long supported surfers throughout the Caribbean and is once again bringing back its skins format surfing contests with the Quiksilver King of Aviones! This time with a $3000 Cash Skins purse at the famed Aviones break in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Known as the most consistent surf spot on the North coast of Puerto Rico, Aviones is where many of Puerto Rico’s finest have honed their surfing skills during their younger years and still often go.

Located just minutes away from Old San Juan and still heavily patrolled by those who call Puerto Rico home. “Aviones is a wave you can always count on for a surf no matter what,” says Pablo Diaz Quiksilver Sales & Contest Co-Organizer. Avoines, named for being the flight path of Airplanes taking off from San Juan’s International Airport, is also in the flight path of swarms of Mosquitos… The true locals of the surf break

The Quiksilver King of Aviones will take place Oct 31 -November 1st, 2009. Considering the occasion of Halloween, Quiksilver has brought in a Trick or Treat fun factor, with extra cash for claiming the best wave and claiming the best scoring costume all in one, of course this component is optional! Teaming up with the Puerto Rican Surfing Federation for this event, the whole Caribbean & Puerto Rico is looking forward to a huge turnout!

Be sure to get you entry in early, for this event is sure to fill up. Or if your into seeing some of the best world class surfers throwing it down along with some Ghoulish Goons and Loons drop by and witness an original one of a kind contest!


See you there!!!
