Rusty has signed big wave charger Flea Virotsko to its team, announced Peter Townend at the Surf Expo trade show in Orlando, Florida. “The deal hasn¹t been done for more than 48 hours,” he said.
Similar to the other sponsorship agreements that Rusty has done with its athletes, this will also be a package deal: Flea will be surfing on Rusty¹s boards in addition to wearing the company¹s clothing.
In other staff changes, longtime Rusty Sales Manager Jerry Lund was recenlty promoted to vice president in charge of sales and merchandising.
