RUSTY hires Bryan Hewitson as Sales Representative for the state of Florida.

IRVINE, CA. Bryan Hewitson, after being a successful pro surfer for the past 11 years, has shifted gears and become RUSTY’s latest and greatest Florida Sales Rep. The decision by newly appointed Sales Manager Rob Willis is another strong move toward maintaining the existing momentum and positive changes at the brand.

“It is my pleasure to have known Hewey from his shop-grom days at Shagg’s Surf Shop in Florida, says Willis. “He has become one of the hottest, most beloved surfers on the East Coast. Hewey conducts his life and professional surfing career with class, integrity and style. We are stoked to have him join the Rusty Brand.

The native Floridian and former X-Games Gold Medalist has been deeply embedded in professional surfing for over a decade and, along the way, has gained both significant promotional experience and a great understanding of the surf industry. It was only natural that Bryan’s credentials would earn him East Coast ambassador status for one of the world’s most exciting surf brands. “Rusty has insane boards, great clothes, and deep roots in surfing! Who wouldn’t wanna be a part of that? stated Hewey.

The addition of Bryan to the RUSTY program represents the brand’s continued commitment to the youth market—because, let’s face it, Hewey may be learning new tricks but he’s no old dog.

Look out for Hewey in the water and in the surf shops decked out in RUSTY gear and proud of it. Welcome to the family Hewey, we’re stoked to have you with us!
