After googling, i think he means this

I think it's a terrible idea, another company jumping on the "surfing is cool" bandwagon, and attracting posers.

Yes I mean this you've found..

I don't know.. :roll: :roll: I live in italy and if i want to surf I have to take a fu**** plane every time or surf one a month if I am lucky.. If I can surf for about 10 days with pro surfer in Hossegor it's seems good to me! Maybe I'll sign in, although I don't like so much tv shows.. it could be an experience! :roll:

I reckon Quiky are suffering.

They've dumped a load of sponsored surfers and teaming up with Jeep smacks of desperation.

Time was you couldn't get sale stuff from them outside of specific dates. Now they have deals running all the time.

Thank's for this link, very interesting and worrying :? but fortunatly I'm not an investitor :)
Maybe it's really desperation but seems still interesting to me.. at least for surf a lot spending nothing! 8) It was november when I surfed my last wave :-( but it was a great wave in the north shore of FV!
Some days ago I've read about they dumped lot's of sponsored surfers, they now have only 180 sponsorized athlets.. I mean, 180 it's not enough? I can't find how much they have after those downgrading.
