Events: Core Cup On-Call Surf Contest 2010

For the 3rd year in a row, The Scion Core Cup On-Call Surf Contest
presented by Island Surf and Sports is a go!

Newport, Rhode Island, On September 15th the waiting period for the Scion Core Cup 2010 oncall
surf contest will begin. The event is set to take place at Second Beach in Middletown, R.I. a
surf spot that many call the epicenter of New England surf. In order to provide the best waves in
the sometimes fickle New England waters, organizers have selected an on call format that will
run from September 15th to November 15th. During that time, event organizers will select the
weekend day with the best waves in order to give surfers the best opportunity to showcase their
talent and battle for the coveted Core Cup and the monstrous purse.

This year 36 of New England’s best surfers will do battle in what many say is the best and most
progressive surf contest in the region.

In an effort to make a deeper connection within the surf culture, Scion, Toyota’s brand for the
youth market, stepped up with sponsorship dollars worthy of a contest of this caliber. Symon
Cousens, owner of Island Surf and Sport and the host shop of the contest said, “It’s taken three
years, but the Core Cup seems to be the most progressive event in the region and we’re happy to
be a part of it.”

Link Marketing, a Maine-based youth and action sports marketing, consulting and event
management firm.
