California, Hawaii, and Australia: Two months ago we launched SUPER, now we’ve just signed a sweet multi-year deal with Blitz Distributions to exclusively distribute our gear to the US and International Action Sports marketplace. That’s right, we are hyped! If you don’t already know, Blitz is the esteemed distributor of Birdhouse, Flip, Baker and Sk8mafia deck brands, which boast some of the sickest teams in skateboarding. So for us to get linked up to these dudes, this is a match made in heaven.
“We were initially worried that we would have to take some time off to drive all over and sell boards, but this has now been taken care of. With the extensive Blitz distribution network, you’ll be able to get our boards, no worries,” says Dion Agius, SUPER co-founder. “This collaboration is a perfect fit for us. Through Blitz, SUPER is now aligned with the top selling brands in skateboarding. That’s right, we’re bringing surf to the street!”
“We are really looking forward to be a part of making history; by changing the landscape of how a surf brand is marketed.” says Per Welinder, President of Blitz Distribution
With all this said, it’s now time to start looking for SUPER in the shops. We’ve been crazy busy getting our website ready, which will be launched in early April; and now we’re about to start filming for The SUPER Movie, set for release Summer ’09. Also look out for our upcoming limited edition artist series – the graphics are going to be sick (we’ll keep you in the loop about that).
SUPER is a rider-driven brand founded in Jan. ’08 by Clay Marzo, Kolohe Andino, Dion Agius, Ry Craike, and Tosh Townend. Our goal is to progress both the style and tricks of surfing with rider-tested line of surfboards and products developed to meet and exceed the highest demands of heavy shredding.
Blitz has a strong history of brand development, and encompasses some of the most important brands in skateboarding, including Birdhouse, Flip, Baker and recent upstart JSLV Clothing. Blitz distributes its product ranges around the world, and covers all retail sectors from the independent shops through the large sporting good chains. The core goal remains unchanged all these years later – offer the highest quality products, at reasonable prices, and encourage the continued growth of skateboarding as a passion, and way of life.
