Drop Zone: Fiji Premiere at The Pearl Hotel San Diego

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (June 17, 2011): Body Glove and Ocean Beach Surf & Skate are proud to announce the premiere of Drop Zone: Fiji at The Pearl Hotel on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. This premiere promises to be an extraordinary night for The Pearl Hotel’s monthly event, Surf on the Silver Screen, and will feature a very special signing and meet and greet with Body Glove team rider and professional surfer, Cheyne Magnusson.

Body Glove, PADI, Sport Diver, Transworld SURF and Air Pacific are proud to present Drop Zone: Fiji, the highly anticipated sequel to the award winning film, 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. It’s not all fish and games, however, when they head to Frigates Passage. The pumping swell sinks a boat, destroys thousands of dollars in equipment and almost takes out the director, Greg Browning. The lush environment provided rich entertainment and spawned the unlikely new surf and scuba duo.

In addition to the premiere, Drop Zone: Fiji star and professional surfer, Cheyne Magnusson will be making a very special appearance for an intimate meet and greet and signing from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. Body Glove and Ocean Beach Surf & Skate will also raffle off a ton of prizes and The Pearl Hotel will host exclusive food and drink specials throughout the night.

Ocean Beach Surf & Skate and The Pearl Hotel invite guests of all ages to this incredible adventure on the silver screen to help celebrate the premiere of this phenomenal film. Admission is free and open to the public. Pre-premiere food and cocktails, raffle sales, pro signings and seating will begin at 7 p.m., with the premiere beginning at 8 p.m. Seating is limited so please arrive early or for table reservations, please call (619) 226-6100. The Pearl Hotel is located at 1410 Rosecrans Street, San Diego, CA 92106.
