Carlsbad, CA – No Fear’s VP of Marketing, Britt Galland and NSSA
Executive Director, Janice Aragon announced today that No Fear has
extended its commitment to serve as the title sponsor for NSSA’s four
championship series through June of 2011. The original three-year
contract was set to expire after the NSSA Nationals in June of 2009.
The newly extended commitment encompasses the sponsorship of the NSSA
Interscholastic State Championships, East Coast and West Coast
Championships and the grand finale-the NSSA National Championships-
widely recognized as our nation’s most prestigious amateur surfing
“No Fear has always recognized the NSSA as the cornerstone of amateur
surfing in the USA, which is why we jumped at the chance to associate
our brand with NSSA in 2007,” Galland said. “No Fear’s philosophy is
to support young athletes and help them realize their fullest
potential…and that’s exactly the role the NSSA plays in the surfing
According to Aragon, No Fear’s involvement will continue to provide
significant benefits to NSSA’s member-competitors and multifaceted
surfing program. “Promoting competitive accomplishment and scholastic
achievement to our members is at the core of the NSSA’s DNA, and we
are proud that No Fear supports our mission. We’re thrilled that No
Fear has extended its support and we feel very fortunate to have the
opportunity to continue this long-term partnership.”
Since inking its original three-year deal with the NSSA in 2007, No
Fear has continued to escalate its support. In October of 2008, No
Fear announced its sponsorship of the 2008-2009 NSSA Junior Series-
the organization’s entry-level competitive series for middle school
and high school surfers. More recently, No Fear Energy became the
official energy drink of the NSSA.
Since its humble beginnings 30 years ago, the NSSA has evolved into
the launching pad from the amateur level to professional surfing.
Virtually every American surfer competing on the ASP World
Championship Tour has come up through the NSSA organization.
