Breitling watches has announced a new three-year partnership as Official Timekeeper with Wheels and Waves, the famous motorcycle, surfing, and skateboarding festival.
The Wheels and Waves festival, which is held each June, combines three thrilling sports: motorcycling, surfing, and skateboarding, and offers visitors a rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture and action of surfing and motorcycling, and to explore the extraordinary city of Biarritz, one of Europe’s top tourist destinations.
Along with world-class competitions in both disciplines, it is also highlighted by top-flight skateboarding, emotionally charged concert performances, and exhibitions from a wide range of talented artists, craftspeople, and innovative sponsors.
Breitling’s strong links with the sports the festival showcases are reflected by its partnership with Norton Motorcycles, the legendary British motorcycle maker, its Surfers Squad (Kelly Slater, Sally Fitzgibbons, and Stephanie Gilmore), and its role as Official Timekeeper at the 2019 World Surf League’s Freshwater Pro in Lemoore, California.
“Our partnership with Wheels and Waves lets us highlight the cool lifestyle of surfing and the passion for sporty and elegant motorbikes we share with the festival. As an informal brand for people driven by action, purpose, and style, we have products and values that perfectly match the spirit and the joy associated with Wheels and Waves.”Georges Kern, Breitling’s CEO
