Body Glove Pitches In On International Surf Day
MONDAY, June 20th, 2011. Redondo Beach, CA: Professional surfers and Body Glove team ambassadors Cheyne Magnussen and Matt Pagan we're among the Body Glove sales and marketing team who dropped their blackberrys and picked up trash-pokers in the name of good will today. International Surf Day has transcended the Hallmark-holiday label and took hold within the core surf community inspiring acts like Body Glove’s all over.
"It's more than just an excuse to go surfing", said Matt Patterson, core surf sales manager. "It's about participating in your passion at the level of giving back. We are sponsors of JACKS PIER CLASSIC right here on this beach each year, so we really use it. Our retail partner JACKS up the street is a huge supporter of the community too, so we see this as an opportunity to do something positive in our backyard".
