Sea Sessions Surf and Music Festival - Quiksilver Expression Session Announced

MAIN BEACH BUNDORAN, Ireland (Tuesday, May 27, 2014) – Sea Sessions have just announced details of their surf programme for 2014. Joining music acts will be some of the best competitors on the international circuit for Ireland's Biggest Beach Party of the Year.

The Sea Sessions Expression Session is returning in 2014 with the cream of European performance surfing taking on the best in Ireland. The event format as usual is 'best move/air' and is organized in a way to allow the surfers to express themselves and push their performance.

“It is a really spectator-friendly format”, said event organizer Pete Craig. “Most surf events are quote technical and not really that engaging for non-surfers. This unique format allows for and encourages explosive surfing that everyone can get”, he said.

The competitors will range from countries such as France, Spain, Portugal the Caribbean, UK and Ireland. William Alotti (Saint Martin) is returning to defend his title and is an early favorite. Toby Donachie (UK), who was one of the standout performers last year with some huge boosts, is also returning to challenge Alotti for a total prize pot of €3000. Noah Lane (AUS) was the darkhorse of the event last year and after having settled in Bundoran may have some local knowledge that could aid him this year.

New for 2014 is the Malin Waters Fish Challenge. The fish challenge will see a selection of local surfers and traveling pros attack the waves in some old school shapes that have been selected for the event.

On the music side, top international talent will be joining the crème de la crème of Irish acts this year at Sea Sessions with Kelis, The Strypes and The Dandy Warhols all set to perform in Bundoran. Full music line up and festive activities can be found at
