As I had feared, the Quiksilver site is jammed. You can still try today, but you'll have a better chance in the next day or two (after it's over, of course). Believe me, it'll still be worth it. In the meantime, the press package will give you a lot of info about the event's line-up, history, etc.
I am Sam Hannaway, and I share this blog with the dogs in my life. Being creative soothes my soul, so I write when I have something to say, paint when words don't cut it and try to follow the dogs' advice with grace. They say to keep it simple.
