Carlsbad, CA (September 13, 2013) – With the Hurley Pro on the horizon, official eyewear sponsor Dragon Alliance welcomes surfing fans and the best surfers in the world to Lower Trestles. Adding to the excitement of the event, Dragon will also host a party to celebrate its innovative sunglass style, The Mansfield, in addition to a community event for local students, the Dragon Field Trip.
Held at the OC Tavern on Monday, July 16 at 8:30 p.m, Dragon’s Mansfield party will feature good vibes and music selections by Chris Cote, an appearance by Dragon’s Miss Mansfield winner Lissa De Lorenzo and a handful of surprise guests including Dragon team riders.
Created to give back to the local community, the Dragon Field Trip will provide 250 students with a free product bag and a complimentary lunch from Fishermans restaurant. Originally founded in San Clemente, the Dragon Field Trip pays homage to the humble beginnings of the now worldwide-established brand. To participate in the Dragon Field Trip, students will need to show a school ID at the Dragon retail area onsite at the Hurley Pro on Sunday, September 15.
Sponsoring a number of current World Tour athletes, Dragon riders Mick Fanning, Ace Buchan and Rob Machado will all bring their signature performances to the water during the event. Currently in the World No. 2 position on the ASP World Tour, Mick Fanning looks to inch ahead of 11 time World Champion Kelly Slater, while Buchan comes in with confidence following his recent win at the Billabong Pro Tahiti. In addition, crowd favorite Rob Machado will let his fins loose in the annual Expression Session held on the final day of the event.
