Australian Open of Surfing App


M R K Development in conjunction with Black Salt Studio team was approached by VANS to develop a dual platform application for both tablets and phones for the VANS live events.

These events included the triple crown events in Hawaii for the professional surfing end of year and snowboarding events.

M R K Development was asked to develop a Content Management System to dynamically update the content inside these applications as well as make the front end applications for iOS and Android.

The design and project outcomes were successful and delivered in a short time. The VANS application was used over a period of 2 years for all the VANS live events.

The CMS was well developed and handled by the Vans Team directly with little support needed for the application.

Overall the project took a significant amount of time to develop but delivered on all outcomes within the given timeframes.

Multi Platform Applications

Android / iOS and Blackberry Application all updated from one XML simulcast service.

Android Support


The AOS App was deployed onto Android Gingerbread devices with a customised, android specific interface with video streaming and live updates via instant notifications.

Apple support


The iOS version of the application was the most robust out of the three making use of iOS4 and the iPhone 3 platform to deliver a smooth experience for consumers of the app.

Blackberry Support


The event was sponsored by blackberry and we made use of the latest platform and tools to deliver the application on these devices. Using an HTML toolkit with native APIs assisted event sponsors, Blackberry, to engage with the audience.
