O Neill Close Encounter
Paul Grey geht mit Team O Neill auf Entdeckungstour nach Marokko.
Vom 09.01 – 19.01 trifft sich Team O´Neill in Marokko, besser gesagt in Imsouanse. Dabei sind sieben Teamfahrer aus sieben verschiedenen europäischen Länden und die drei internationalen Helden Mark Mathews, Cory Lopez und Shaun Cansdell. Grund für den Trip ist ganz einfach; Wellen mit Freunden Teilen und von einander lernen. Der Teamspirit soll verstärkt und die marokkanische Küste entdeckt werden. Mit dabei ist auch der deutsche Paul Grey, der in das schicke und für den Trip zur Verfügung stehende BoardX Surfhouse einziehen wird. Bei solch einem Freesurf-Trip sind spektakuläre Fotos und Videos garantiert, die ihr in vollem Umfang demnächst hier und in der April SURFERS Printausgabe bewundern könnt.
