Surf Hardware International (SHI) is pleased to announce they’ve signed USA free surfer and hero to the homeless Nick Rozsa to represent the FCS and Gorilla brands.
Rozsa’s global exposure has been on the rise in recent years since launching his Salty Beards website, and a series of surfing clips depicting his freakish talent in the water. Besides being an amazing surfer, Nick also devotes a good chunk of his time and efforts to helping homeless people.
FCS Brand Ambassador Richie Lovett made comment on the new acquisition. “The decision to sign Nick was a no brainer, sure he’s an incredible surfer, but we’re into his whole act and we’re happy to align our brands with someone who’s actively trying to give back to the community. I’ve got a ton of respect for this guy”.
Under the agreement Nick will ride the FCS systems and fins, the full range of FCS surf accessories, and Gorilla tail pads including his own signature model. Work on the new Gorilla ‘Rozsa’ pad is currently underway and will be released in the next range.
When asked about the agreement Nick was clearly excited about having access to such a diverse range of products.
"Being part of the world’s leading fin and pad manufacturer gives me confidence knowing that whatever wave conditions I encounter; I’ll always have the best fins and pads to choose from. I couldn’t be happier to represent two great brands that are stoked on what I am currently doing."
Rozsa’s web clips have become highly popular among the worlds surfing fraternity, with many critics comparing his talents to Dane Reynolds.
“You can’t deny good surfing when you see it, Nick’s got all the futuristic moves, but he’s also got power, flair, and a style that’s easy on the eye. That’s really the mark of a complete surfer and we’re pumped to have him on the team”. Remarked Matt Wright, Team Manager for FCS and Gorilla in the USA.
With no set agenda or contest schedule to follow, for now we’ll just sit back and wait for the next instalment from www.saltybeards.com
