3rd Annual Busan Mayor's Cup International Surfing Championship

This event is going to be the biggest surfing event of the season!!! With more sponsors than last year and more events for everyone surfers and non surfers alike to enjoy. Also VIP guest CEO of Ocean and Earth will be coming to officiate and promote the launch of O&E and Kelly Slater's new surf line Kommunity in Korea. We are also expecting a team from Thailand to attend to host surfing clinics and compete – To be Confirmed.
This year there will be some changes made to the divisions – the KSA is working to create a 'special class' for the top sponsored surfers in Korea. This class will be awarding points for International competitions to allow Korean surfers to compete abroad. Also competing in this class will be sponsored foreign surfers who are attending by invitation. This is the first step to creating a true open class and an International event in Busan. The first of it's kind in Korea.
