    Billabong Announces New Sponsorship
    Of Cloud 9 Invitational -
    Philippines Surfing Event

    Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24
    July, 2007 : - - Gold Coast -- Surf
    company Billabong announced that in
    2007 it will secure sponsorship of the
    Billabong Cloud 9 Invitational at the
    island jewel of Siargao, Philippines
    in September. The three-year deal
    ensures that Billabong has naming
    rights sponsorship of the Philippines
    biggest surfing event until 2009.

    Siargaos Cloud 9, a powerful hollow
    right-hander, will provide an idyllic
    setting for the whos who of world
    surfing, contestants coming from as
    far a field as Australia, Bali,
    Tahiti, Hawaii, Japan and the USA. Due
    to Siargaos proximity to the
    Philippines, big swells from the
    Pacific Ocean roll in from the second
    deepest stretch of water in the world
    to create flawless hollow barrelling
    waves.

    Boasting US$20,000 in prize money, the
    exclusive invitational event offers a
    world-class field of 48 invited
    surfers a chance to compete at one of
    Asias hottest surfing destinations.
    Billabong General Manager South East
    Asia, Chris James, said sponsorship of
    the Billabong Cloud 9 Invitational is
    a continued commitment to promoting
    the sport of surfing throughout the
    region.

    Cloud 9 is one of the most perfect
    right hand reef breaks in the world,
    said James. To invite 48 tube riding
    specialists to a wave of this calibre
    has serious potential to bring world
    class surfing to South East Asia.

    Similarly, Surigao del Norte Governor
    Robert Ace S. Barbers said, The
    Provincial Government of Surigao del
    Norte is very pleased with Billabongs
    sponsorship of this years
    international surfing competition.
    Surfing is the most awaited sports
    tourism activity in the province.
    Started in 1995, it has now evolved
    into a world-class and widely
    contested event. We are looking
    forward to a successful tournament
    this year.

    The 2007 line-up includes high profile
    surfers such as Mark Matthews
    (Maroubra, NSW, AUS), Jamie OBrien
    (Oahu, HAW), Manoa Drollet (Tahiti),
    Dylan Longbottom (Gold Coast, AUS),
    Makua Rothman (Oahu, HAW), Ryan
    Augenstein (California, USA), Luke
    Dorrington (Gold Coast, AUS) and Asher
    Pacey (Gold Coast, AUS).

    The seven-day tournament will run from
    Monday September 24th to Sunday
    September 30th. The opening ceremony
    will be staged on Monday 24th with
    competition commencing that day. The
    tournament contest site is Siargao
    Islands Cloud 9, a powerful hollow
    right-hander that has been hailed as
    one of the ten best waves in the world
    and has been frequently compared to
    the renowned surf of Hawaii and
    Indonesia.

    The Billabong Cloud 9 Invitational is
    proudly supported by the Provincial
    Government of Surigao Del Norte with
    Support from Smart Communications, San
    Miguel, The Department of Tourism
    Philippines, Asian Spirit and Coca
