11 Nov breakka burleigh pro put on ice
The Gold Coast event calendar will be missing the coveted Breaka Burleigh Pro in 2014, as plans to activate the event have been put on hold while event organisers look to source additional sponsorship for a potential come back in 2015.
Breaka Flavoured Milk will continue to invest in the sport of surfing and plan to bolster their investment into “grassroots” initiatives throughout 2014.
“Over the past four years, The Breaka Burleigh Pro has witnessed the world’s best surfing talent surfing one of the world’s most iconic and influential surf breaks, Burleigh Headland. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Breaka Flavoured Milk as well as all of the respective stakeholders for their support to deliver an event of this calibre within Queensland,” said Surfing Queensland CEO, Scott Gillies.
This year, the Breaka Burleigh Pro was bolstered with an Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) six-star women’s component in addition to the men’s four star. After a consecutive eight-day “competitive window of perfect waves, the event was hailed a resounding success by competitors, stakeholders and spectators alike.
Historically the Breaka Burleigh Pro has been regarded as the perfect warm up event for professional surfers looking to sharpen their skills and prepare for a new season leading into the first event of the ASP World Tour, the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro’s held at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast.
With similar waves, conditions, crowds and prize money on offer, the Breaka Burleigh Pro affords the best surfers in the world a great event to sink their teeth into after a lengthy break from competition.
Breaka Flavoured Milk will continue their support of the Surfing Queensland Breaka Surf Schools in Queensland and grassroots surfing throughout the State in 2014.
