Meet two Australian surfing World Champions this Thursday night at Slimes Newcastle from 5-8pm!

Occy will be in store showing off his new models; the JS Raging Bull & Bullseye and you can get the first look at them in HyFi epoxy construction. The boards are designed as a pair of quiver killers coming in a step-up and step-down version; both with extra forward volume and lower entry rocker for plenty of paddle power, a pulled-in tail for bigger waves/more control through turns and a sharper exit rocker for enhanced responsiveness.

Plus we have a Raging Bull signed by Occy to give away as a lucky door prize! Make sure you grab a ticket on your way in

4x World Campion Mark Richards will also be in store with the launch of his 2 new summer models – the Puffer Twin & Puffer 5! These boards incorporate the best of retro and modern features with the rocker and thickness distribution of a retro twin with forward volume and a beaked nose combined with modern rails, high performance single-double concaves and an accentuated vee through the fins. MR will also be showing off his epic new Twin Fin Softboards in collaboration with Ocean & Earth – available in 2 different constructions and the perfect addition to your summer quiver.

You can also win a MR 1980 Twin with spray, polish & glassed on fins! We have donated this board to Red Nose Australia with all sales going towards their great work. Tickets available in-store or here online and the winner will be drawn on the night –

Billabong Australia will be there showing off next years game-changing steamers! We got to try out these new graphene-lined suits a few months ago and were blown away by how warm and comfortable they are

Go Foil Australia will also be in store with the latest Go Foil 1.5 gear which has only just landed in Australia, get the first look at this 40% lighter system which is fully compatible with everything in their range. Foiling is the ultimate way to have a ball in terrible waves this summer, keeping you in the water as much as possible!

Learn to Surf Newcastle will be in the house for the grommies to sign up for the Surf Groms season this summer and get them fast tracked to learning the best sport in the world
