Flexfit Sponsors Surfing's Biggest Night...
Surfing's biggest stars gathered at The Gold Coast Convention Center in Coolangatta, Queensland, Australia on Thursday, February 25, 2010 to attend the annual ASP Awards Banquet gala to honor the world's most accomplished professional surfers.
In addition to sponsoring the 2008 and 2009 ASP Awards Banquets, Flexfit sponsored
2010's ASP Awards to show their ongoing support for the sport of professional surfing, and for the ASP Worldtour. At this year's event celebrities walked the red carpet, spoke to international media outlets and congratulated their fellow athletes from around the globe.
Some of the evening's honorees included: Gold Coast locals Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore who were crowned World Champion and Women's World Champion, respectively. American surfing superstar and former nine-time ASP World Champion, Kelly Slater, presented Mick Fanning with his World Title trophy. Australian surfer Joel Parkinson and Silvana Lima from Brazil both received runner- up honors during the ceremony. Another memorable award was presented to newcomers Kekoa Bacalso and Coco Ho, both from Hawaii, for ASP Rookie of the Year titles.
The after-party's banquet hall was adorned with flat screen monitors and larger-than-life surfboards emblazoned with Flexfit's logo and logos from fellow sponsors, including: Fuel TV, Quiksilver, Billabong, Jim Beam and Rip Curl. Flexfit hats were on display at every table and all attendees were gifted with custom Flexfit Wool Blend caps - style 6477, which were worn throughout the night.
ASP has just kicked off its 2010 professional surfing tour with the first stop on Australia's legendary Gold Coast.
