May 13, 2008: – – Ocean and Earth International Pty Ltd is proud to announce today the signing of Troy Brooks to its surf accessories team. Under the terms of the Agreement Troy will exclusively use and endorse Ocean & Earth-branded surfboard travel bags, traction, leashes and surf accessories.
Brooks stated, “Yeah I’m stoked to be joining the Ocean & Earth team, it’s good to be riding for a grass roots global brand like Ocean and Earth. I’ve always liked their gear and have been stealing Phil Macca’s stuff for years.”
“This year is going to be a different one for me as I’m now concentrating on free surfing instead of the contest grind. I had a lot of great years on the WCT and now I look forward to getting some good waves at home. I’ve been using the new Ocean & Earth tow gear recently and have been impressed with the results”
“Ocean and Earth will be joining my long time sponsors Quiksilver and Bourton Shapes. Troy is an international talented surfer and a great Aussie who lets his surfing do the talking and we’re stoked to have him with us” said Ocean & Earth International CEO Paul Munten. Troy will have his own signature pad out in July and will be available globally. Keep an eye out for it.
