Reset Communication, the promoters of the Bear Pro Longboard Championship 2011 presented by Jeep, in association with the Association of Surfing professionals and Area 51, would like to confirm that despite the recent floods in Eastern Liguria, Italy, the event site remains untouched and the contest will proceed as planned. The organisation has been in full swing for the past several months and the final touches are currently being put in place.
"We are all very sad about the recent floods in Italy" said Riccardo Belli, president of Reset Communications. "However, things are starting to return to normal and the competition will mark the relaunch of the area as a tourist destination". The Bear Pro presented by Jeep is supported by a variety of big name sponsors including Red Bull energy drink, Ferrari winery, Asahi Japenese beer, the Liguria Region, the Province of La Spezia, and the town of Levanto.
