Huntington Beach, CA (Vocus) September 16, 2009 -–
As the epic date draws closer, Rip Curl’s Surfboards in the Sand continues to add new sponsors and entertainment, making the event one of the most exciting celebrity surf events of the year. Benefiting Surfrider Foundation and Orange County Coastkeeper, the Saturday, September 19th event includes an extraordinary photo opportunity in celebration of surf culture and the protection of our oceans. The historic Rip Curl Surfboards in the Sand photograph will be shot by, and published in, TransWorld SURF Magazine and other select international publications.
Surf City USA is pleased to announce that California-based musical acts The Wheeland Brothers, Nico Adams and Trevor Green have signed on to perform during Rip Curl’s Surfboards in the Sand.
Nico Adams' unique style of piano pop-rock has uniquely defined him in the music world. Taking inspiration from artists such as Elton John and Michael Jackson, Adams’ sound is energetic and playful, with a soulful touch. Adams will release his first album in the final months of 2009.
Inspired by big sunrises and the “surf on a glassy summer morning,” The Wheeland Brothers band, composed of Nate and Travis Wheeland and Marcus Agundez, plays acoustic beach rock and ukulele hip hip-hop.
Thriving on live performance, Trevor Green is constantly evolving as an artist. His stage setup resembles a musical playground where he surrounds himself with a 12-string guitar, a 6-string guitar, a lap slide, a mandolin, a banjo, 2 yidaki (didgeridoos), a stomp box, and various percussion instruments. Green creates a sound that encompasses the genres of world, funk, folk, and jam rock.
