Ben Skinner, from the Oxbow Team, 2007 European Champion
From May 5th to 11th 2008, the Oxbow Pro World Longboard Tour will occur in Anglet, on the Basque Coast, for the French stage of this discipline world tour. Oxbow made this world tour reborn in order for it to become as good as the WCT level, the shortboard surf pro tour.
An Event which gathers the longboard world elite
The longboard discipline embodies boardsport tradition and myth. Nevertheless, this discipline has known how to evolve and how to represent a very fashionable surf style. The best longboarders in the world will be brought by the Oxbow surfers of Ben Skinner, who has been recently sacred European Champion, Duane de Soto, Eduardo Bagé and Antoine Delpero. These “Cavaliers” will show their talent and confront each other on one of the most intense and technical wave on the Basque Coast in order to succeed to the Brazilian Phil Rajman and earn the 50,000 dollar pris money.
The programme of events includes the celebration of the ancestral longboard practice and many festive animations. Longboarding has never been so up-to-date!
An Oxbow event
The Oxbow brand is definitely associated to longboarding thanks to its commitment in the discipline and to its 13 world events at spots like Haleiwa, Malibu, Saint Leu, Makaha, Jeffrey’s Bay, Cabo San Lucas and Ragian. Through its fashion collections, its promotion implication and its team riders’ support, Oxbow is one of the boardsports world leaders.
