Sit back, relax and fasten those seat belts, the O’Neill tour bus has started its road trip and it’ll be parking up at Electric Beach Music Festival on 7 & 8 June.
Decked out from boot to bonnet, the new look surf wagon has been ‘madeover’ using recycled and upcycled materials, including wetsuit inspired seats, giving it a cool new look with an old school vibe. The bus will make its first scheduled stop in Newquay and then on to the best surf spots, the diary is stacked with pro coaching sessions, product testing, acoustic sessions, onboard DJ’s and plenty of time in the water, including stop overs at Electric Beach Festival – Watergate Bay, Leopallooza – Bude and Somersault festival- Woolacombe.
When the bus parks up at Electric Beach Festival on 7 – 8 June, O’Neill will be able to offer expert surfing tuition from the long board master, Ben Skinner, who’s a regular in the British team and hunting his first World title; Sam Lamiroy, prviously Britain number one surfer; Celine Gehret who competes all round the world and the Swiss National Surf Champion; Dale Foster, a regular on the UK Pro Surf tour and Max Payne, Cornish School Surf Champ.
