In anticipation of the Boost Surf Sho on March 12th 2010, Australian surfing prodigies Tyler and Mikey Wright will be joining Habbo Australia (www.habbo.com.au) – the world’s most popular virtual world for teenagers – live on Thursday 11th March 2010 at 6PM AEST to discuss life in between the waves.
This unique opportunity will give fans the chance to discuss all things surfing with two of Australia’s youngest and most talented female and male junior surfers, as they prepare to surf with the world’s best at the largest aerial surf event, The Boost Surf Sho.
At only 15 years of age, Tyler is the youngest ever winner of an Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Women’s World Tour, the Beachly Classic. Mikey, now at age 13 was one of the world’s youngest sponsored surfers at age 8. Both Mickey and Tyler will discuss with Habbo users their dreams to follow the success of their brother Owen Wright, who is seeded 32 in the world.
Jeff Brookes, Regional Director Asia Pacific, Sulake, says “We are excited to have two of Australia’s up and coming female and male surfing talents visit Habbo. A lot of our Habbo’s are eager to learn about what it takes to make it in the surfing world and we are certain Tyler and Mikey will provide insight and inspire Aussie teens to earn wave success.”
