Manama, August 28, 2010
Wahooo!, a leading waterpark in Bahrain and part of Majid Al Futtaim Group, will feature some state of the art O’neill products with a display from some of the world’s top surf pros during this Eid.
Wahooo!’s existing Wave Pro outlet will be the only venue in Bahrain to sell O’neill products, a company statement said.
Initiated around 1952 in America, by Jack O’neill, the O’neill brand has become a global phenomenon selling all over the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific making O’neill one of the most recognized brands for surfers, selling everything from wetsuits to boardshorts and eyewear.
Wahooo! will be the hottest spot this Eid as all waterpark guests, in addition to enjoying the thrills of rides and slides, will also be rewarded with an awe-inspiring display of flow-riding skills by world champions from South Africa.
Wesley Fisher and Billy Tenant, the two members of a winning championship team at the International Flowriding Championships (IFC) 2009, will be specifically flown in to celebrate the new sales of O’neill products and to enthral Wahooo! waterpark guests with their magical display of tricks and turns on the Wahooo! Flowrider.
Throughout the day, the world champions will arrive to present a 10-minute display of some of the best skills ever seen.
Virgin Megastore’s resident - DJ Faith will also be present, providing the perfect musical backdrop to the thrilling surf shows.
On the last day of Eid Wahooo! guests are also welcome to perform their own moves and tricks, in a Jam Session at 6 pm, which will then be judged by the world champions Wesley and Billy, with a prize reward for the winner.
“Wahooo! Waterpark is delighted to welcome such talented surfers to show off their unique skills to our guests, something that could not be done without the expertise and reputation that comes with O’neill,” said Wahooo! General Manager, Damien Latham.
“The addition of the Flowrider show to our numerous slides and attractions is reflective of our aim to consistently offer the newest in innovative leisure entertainment to our guests,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
