The seventh Busan Mayor's Cup International Surfing Competition will be held at Haeundae Beach from June 26-27. This year will see more pro riders attending the largest surfing event in Korea.
 
Axxe Korea has realized the benefits of bringing over a team rider and has invested in big-name surfers.
 
Kim Byung-jin, owner of Gaviota (Songjeong) and the distributor for Axxe Wetsuits, said that "It is important for Korean surfers to see different styles of surfing and see how pro riders can surf in all conditions.
 
"Korea doesn't have the best conditions for surfing every day, but  it will inspire you when you can see a pro rider making the most of even the smallest waves," Kim added.
 
"Every year, Ocean and Earth Korea has brought over a pro rider from the Australian team so I thought it would be nice for Korean surfers to get a chance to see and learn from someone with a more retro-style of surfing. That is the reason why I asked C.J. Nelson to come to Korea and he has agreed."
 
Not to be left out of the pro pool, Kai Surf of Gwanalli has invested in bringing a pro rider of its own to the peninsula.
 
Following the success of Brett Burcher last year, Ocean and Earth team rider Sean Mawson will come to Busan to compete.
 
When asked why he decided to bring a pro rider to Korea for the Busan event when another brand had already announced a pro rider, Dylan Kim of Kai Surf said, "C.J. Nelson and Sean Mawson's surfing styles are completely different and by having both at the same venue it really gives Korean surfers a chance to witness and experience the different forms surfing can take."
 
"Just because you ride a short board, it doesn't mean that you can't appreciate the skill and grace to ride a longboard. A surfer might find something new in seeing the pros surf and they have an opportunity to ask these team riders questions and get feedback."
 
"It is an important event since most Korean surfers come to the Busan competition to give them exposure to international pros that they otherwise only get to see on YouTube or surf movies. It's an intimate experience and may inspire a young surfer who otherwise had no dream of continuing on the path to one day represent Korea."
 
Mawson and Nelson will hold events, interviews, meet and greet autograph sessions as well as rider clinics throughout the week leading up to the main event on the weekend.
 
In addition to Nelson (Axxee Classic), Mawson (Ocean and Earth), and Melvin Palmiano (Pine Ocean), Japanese pro surfer Hirakawa Yoshihiro (Breakerout Wetsuits) will again be joining the competition.
