De Republica recently traveled the world with Quiksilver working as their offline content producers for both their New York and France world tour events. New York City was a groundbreaking event for Quiksilver and surfing in general. It was quoted by many disbelievers to be the biggest gamble ever made on a surf event and destined for failure. The event turned out to be one of the best events all year with amazing waves, awesome surfing and a prize purse that boasted to be the first million dollar prize pool ever raised for an event. During the duration of the event DAPA was in charge of creating the bulk of the creative content surrounding contest. The Two major outputs was 22minute documentary on the whole event which was online just 24 hours after the event finished and to create original content for the Live Quiksilver Morning Show. A 30min program which was aired each morning on Fuse, MSG, One HD and a number of other large number international networks. The event was a huge success and turned out to be one of most watched surfing event in history.
After the high standard we set in New York we felt it was necessary to raise the bar again making sure we created a unique product for the French event. De Republica drew on inspiration from the amazing French culture and surroundings in the South West of France to communicate the French cultural experience to a worldwide audience. The event saw 17 yr old Brazilian Gabriel Medina win his first world tour event which in turn made for an amazing story. De Republica similar to New York was responsible for creating the bulk of the creative content that surrounded the event. This included a 22min documentary style production that was onlined just 12 hours after the event wrapped up and the Quiksilver Morning Show. A talk pannel style TV show which was broadcasted live to the web over the 10 day waiting period. De Republica produced the show ensuring original and interesting content was brought to its audience each morning bright and early at 7am.
