Drop Zone: Tahiti Gets a Sequel in Drop Zone: Fiji
Holly Beck, Alex Gray, Maria del Mar, Cheyne Magnusson and Bede Durbidge head to Fiji for the Second Installment
Redondo Beach, CA – Body Glove, PADI, Sport Diver, TransWorld SURF and Air Pacific announce the premiere of Drop Zone: Fiji, the highly anticipated sequel to Drop Zone: Tahiti. Drop Zone: Fiji will premiere in Las Vegas, NV during DEMA (Dive Equipment & Marketing Association) on November 18th at 8 pm at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Like the award winning Drop Zone: Tahiti, Drop Zone: Fiji follows world class surfers Holly Beck, Cheyne Magnusson, Alex Gray and newcomers Maria Del Mar and current #8 ASP World Tour ranked Bede Durbidge, as they travel the South Pacific.
The crew heads out in search of pristine dive locations and chases down some of the most epic surf on the planet. Your favorite surfers head to Tavarua to surf the world famous Cloudbreak and SCUBA dive (cage free) with bull sharks, vibrant fish and friendly turtles. But its not all fish and games when they head to Frigates Pass. The pumping swell sinks a boat, loses thousands of dollars in equipment and almost takes out the director. The lush environment provided rich entertainment and spawned an unlikely new duo.
Drop Zone: Fiji premieres during DEMA in November and will air on FuelTV in early 2011. For information on the premiere go to the DROP ZONE SERIES page on Facebook.
