Seasessions looks set to be a fantastic weekend of live music, surfing, film-showings, Guinness and camping in one of the world’s most beautiful coastal settings, Bundoran, on Ireland’s NW coast.
Bundoran is already know as Ireland’s capital city of surfing (ach it’s actually a small town, but it’s Irish surfing’s main nerve centre), but this year the town is taking things a step further and hosting the Seasessions Festival on June 26, 27 & 28th. Big names like the Super Fury Animals and Andrew Weatherall will be among those taking to several stages to perform for the festival crowd.
Seasessions is also delighted to announce that the Irish premier of Kelly Slaters new movie will take place in a tepee on the festival site. Other surf movies such as Waveriders and The Power of 3 will be on display in the movie tepee.
There will also be plenty of surfing and Quiksilver have stepped in to sponsor that side of things, including an expression session competition for which Quiksilver have announced a 1000euro travel voucher for the winner and lots of spot prizes for innovative surfing. The Quiksilver Expression Session format is designed to allow the surfers freedom to go for it and bust big moves. The competition is limited to 8 surfers and is judged on best wave/ best move unlike traditional comps. Six of Ireland and the Uks top surfers will be invited to take part with Spenser Hargraves and Cain Kilcullan among those already confirmed. The final two spots will be open to wildcards who will selected from an open expression session held on the day of the comp.
Quiksilver are also looking for the best surfer instructor on a swell board. The swelly board challenge will put surf instructors from different surf schools against each other to see who can really cut it on the learner boards. There will be team and individual prizes as well as recognition for the Surf School they represent.
The Quiksilver/Tonnta photo and utube video comp is also underway with a Quicksilver winter wettys/watches and sunnies on offer and the best overall photo will be published in Tonnta.
