August 14, 2008: – – Costa Mesa — 7 days, 4 icons, 2 World Champions, 1 bus, 1 coast: The Rip Curl Right Coast Raid is locked and loaded to bring the world’s best surfers to the East Coast for one week of domination, August 18-24.

From New York to Florida, Mick Fanning, Tom Curren, Taylor Knox, and Pancho Sullivan will be making appearances at select surf accounts, select surf locations, and select nighttime venues to throw movie premieres, autograph signings, and account “Surf Exhibition Missions” to the East Coast’s finest.

“I’m psyched,” released the reigning ASP World Champ, Mick Fanning. “It’ll be wicked to cut loose for a week, and check out different parts of the East Coast.” Teammate and current ASP World Tour top 45, Taylor Knox, is equally excited for next week. “Are you kidding me?
