Check out all Rip Culr action at www.ripcurl.com

The Rip Curl Novia Scotia Cup is set to play host to a record breaking field of Canada’s top surfers this weekend, September 3-4, 2005 at Lawrencetown Beach in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. The stage is set for over 250 surfers to battle it out in the North Atlantic’s harsh conditions in hopes of being crowned the Rip Curl Cup Champion and one of Canada’s famed surfers.

The Competition will include surfers of all ages and divisions for Men, Women and grommets. This year’s Grand Prize winner will be walking away with an adventure vacation package courtesy of G.A.P. Adventures, one of the events premiere sponsors. However, the prizes don’t stop there because other sponsorship partners including Spy Optic, Dakine, Molson, Universal Music, Otherworld Surfboards, and of course Rip Curl will be sure every contestant walks away with tons of fresh, new gear!

Contest directors are expecting an extremely talented field of Canada’s top surfers along with a flooding number of spectators to come and enjoy the event’s festivities. “We invite everyone to come take part in what will be an incredible weekend in the Canadian Action Sports and entertainment industry!” replied Rip Curl Canada Marketing Coordinator, Joe Grimaldi.

Surf forecasters are showing swell heights to stay in the fun, chest to shoulder high range with SE swell reminents pushing in from Hurricane Katrina. Nonetheless, Nova Scotia withholds a wide swell window where some short period NE windswell may decide to help jump wave heights.
