Creatures Of Leisure Signs Fred Patacchia

Oz-Surf International is stoked to announce the addition of Fred Patacchia to the Creatures of Leisure International Team.

Twenty-year-old Patacchia finished the 2001 WQS rated 39, and is currently ranked 10th on the WQS with the prospect of being the next American to qualify for the WCT.


He also joins the elite list of Creatures riders that includes Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Roy Powers, Mikala Jones, Taj Burrow, Jake Paterson, Dave Rastovich, and Mike Todd.

“We welcome Fred to the team and look forward to his contribution to product development as he charges not just Pipe and Sunset on the North Shore but also on the WQS tour,” says Oz-Surf President Derek Wilson.

Additionally, Creatures welcomes Sunset Beach’s Raymond Reichle to the team. Reichle, 16, had a strong showing at the Hot Buttered Junior Pro in Oz and is leading the NSSA Explorer division in Hawai’i.
