So we were looking about in our DVD’s and found the original Quiksilver Reef Check video from 2004 🙂 So thought we’d share it 🙂
International surf sensation Kelly Slater invited Reef Check to the islands of Fiji for an event like no other. The Kelly Slater Invitational was held May 20-22 2004 on the islands of Tavarua and Namotu and the beneficiary of this celebrity surfing event was Reef Check.
After the competition, actress Kelly Hu, pro-surfer Chris Malloy, and Quiksilver International President Bruce Raymond joined Reef Check Fiji Coordinator Helen Sykes in the village of Waitabu in Taveuni to honor Sala Apao and the village for the success of their Reef Check program. Sala and her son Antony were interviewed by Malloy and featured in the Outdoor Life Network television program highlighting the event.
This was a wonderful opportunity for Reef Check to express the importance of its mission and convey the crisis of coral reef health in the world. We would like to thank Kelly Slater and his management team at H&S Media for this opportunity. Special thanks also to Quiksilver for their constant support of Reef Check initiatives worldwide.
