February 2, 2013

Signature Event with Secretary of State Ken Detzner
Tallahassee, FL (January 28, 2013) – Expedition Florida 500 (XF500) is a year-long modernday
exploration of Florida’s coastline, waterways, and aquatic ecosystems, as seen through the
eyes of the waterman in honor of a significant anniversary for Florida. 2013 is Florida’s 500th
anniversary since Ponce de León landed on Florida’s coastline back in 1513, and is being
commemorated statewide in Florida through the Viva Florida 500 initiative
(www.VivaFlorida.org) led by the Florida Department of State. In celebration of this momentous
occasion, Quiksilver Waterman Collection has partnered with Mother Ocean, Tahoe SUP and
Viva Florida 500 to embark on a yearlong journey combining the best of exploration, adventure,
stewardship, science, and sport into a package that will include the full gamut of the waterman’s
lifestyle. More ….. St Marks Press release
