Team Additions For Fox’s 2008 Surf Program
Tommy Asing, or “Uncle Tommy” as he’s known, comes in strong as the Fox Surf Team Manager for Hawaii. Asing is well known in the industry and is widely respected as not only a surf team manager, but also a mentor. His main goal will be to promote the Fox brand by assisting in promotions and events, through his efforts and those of the talented surf athletes on the team. He is also determined to develop each athlete to be the best they can be, in and out of the water, teaching them to be role models of the future. With 30 years of Karate experience as an instructor and fighter, and 5 time Hawaii State Champ, and longtime history as a surf team manager, there is no doubt that Asing’s firm motivation, strong sense of discipline and exuberant winning style will get the job done.
