Vans recently announced, via their website, that their Duct Tape Surf Contest Series would be coming to Nova Scotia in 2015. Until this was posted, SANS was unaware of any plan to bring this contest to Nova Scotia.
Since its inception in 1987, SANS has served as a conduit for discussions between the local surfing community and people and businesses looking to bring in new surf contests and events, with the aim to minimize impacts and maximize benefits to the local surfing community.
To be clear, SANS doesn’t have the authority to forbid anyone from holding a surf contest or event in Nova Scotia. And in any case, that’s not what we’re about. SANS is about building an inclusive, fun and respectful surf community; supporting recreational and amateur surfing; and fostering coastal
If Vans wants to reach out to SANS and share their ideas about bringing their Duct Tape contest to Nova Scotia, we’re open to working with them to help them engage with the local surfing community to discuss about the possibility of this event coming to Nova Scotia.
We’ll update our website and facebook page as we learn more.
Please feel free to e-mail email@example.com with any comments, concerns or information so we can help all parties make the best decision as to how, and if, they should proceed with this event.
