Dragon has added Otto Flores to the international surf program where he will act as an ambassador of surf and fun for the Puerto Rico area. Otto will be helping to grow the brand’s presence in Puerto Rico through grassroots marketing efforts and retail relations. He will also mentor an amateur surf team alongside some of the greatest pro surfers Puerto Rico has to offer like Tommy Bursian.
Along with being one of the best surfers in Puerto Rico, Otto is a complete waterman who has surfed all over the world at some of the heaviest waves on offer. He now splits his time between surf trips, events, and marketing endeavors for many of the industry’s top brands. “Traveling the world has brought me great friends and many different perspectives within the surf culture. Working with Dragon is a great opportunity to bring it all back and translate the vibe to such a great place that I can call home”, says Otto. “Dragon has a lot of roots in Puerto Rico and I look forward to growing the brand with the local surfers here.”
“Otto is a world class surfer and someone we have a lot of respect for in and out of the water,” says Rick Irons Jr., Global Brand Manager of Dragon. “He is creative and knows the local surf scene in PR as well as anyone. Plus, when the waves get good, he will always be charging the biggest barrels.”
