2011 SWATCH GIRLS PRO CHINA HOSTED BY WANNING $10,000 NOSERIDER DIVISION

With under one week to go until the SWATCH GIRLS PRO China hosted by Wanning commences on the idyllic, tropical shores of Hainan Island, the lineup has been announced for a $10,000 prize purse specialty Noserider division.

In another first for the groundbreaking SWATCH GIRLS PRO China hosted by Wanning (along with being the historic debut of international competition in China), the Noserider division will be a unisex event, pitting the skills of male and female surfers against each other.

An eclectic 10-surfer field of some of the very finest purveyors of longboard finesse vying for $3,500 first place in the Noserider division includes the likes of Endless Summer 2 star ‘Wingnut’ Weaver (USA), surfer/model Crystal Dzigas (HAW), surfer/artist Christian Wach (USA), leading European pro longboarder Sam Bleakley (UK) as well as top contenders from the main event like Lindsay Steinreide (USA) and Kassia Meador (USA).

While westerners may be sometimes referred to in Chinese colloquialism as the ‘Chang Bizi’ (long noses), it will be their skills regarding the other kind of nose, the ones of the front of their performance longboards, that these surfers will be hoping to impress the judges with in the South China Sea.

Event sponsors Swatch have also announced that Swatch ProTeam rider and 2008 ASP World Junior Champ Pauline Ado (FRA) will be attending the groundbreaking event, as well as Anne-Flore Marxer, Swatch snowboard pro rider and reigning Freeride World Champion.

This event marks the second partnership between women's surfing and Swatch, which already sponsors the SWATCH GIRLS PRO France, ASP 6-star women’s event.
