Spencer Skipper

Manta is happy to announce their latest signing of Hawaiian Spencer Skipper.

Skipper has been long regarded as one most stylish riders in the business and seemed pretty stoked about the new deal.

“I’m stoked on the new deal. It gives me the chance to travel and do what I love doing best. I’ll be hanging on the North Shore for the Hawaiian winter and plan on surfing Pipe as much as possible. Then heading down to Oz for there winter to do some team trips with the boys.”

Reon Fisher Manta’s team manager commented. “It’s cool; Skip has always been one of my favorite riders. He has that really unique style of riding that I don’t think anyone else can really mimic. I’m looking forward to getting some good shots of him from the Hawaiian season and getting him out here for the Aussie winter.”

This is the first time that a series dedicated towards junior bodyboarders has been staged and Terry McKenna, General Manager of IBA Australasia, says he is excited to take the event to the Central Coast.

“ The Central Coast is a hotbed of talent with a lot of gifted young Bodyboarders” said Mckenna.

“ The surf is always pretty consistent at North Avoca around this time of the year and with the school holidays in full swing we expect a big crowd”.

“ The first prize is a return trip to Hawaii for the first event on the IBA World Tour at Pipeline in Hawaii in February, so the best riders in the country will be pushing each other to get a win”.
