Redondo Beach, CA (December 20, 2010) – Australian ripper Anthony Walsh is the latest athlete to extend his sponsorship deal with Body Glove International. Walsh has signed a 3-year extension and an upgrade, to a full package rider for wetsuits, apparel and boardshorts.
“In 2010 Anthony was always able to put himself in the right place at the right time. Incredible images of Anthony in the barrel have resulted. We are extremely excited that Anthony is part of the team,” said Scott Daley, VP of Marketing.
Walsh has big plans for the coming 2011 season and beyond with Body Glove. His second place finish at the 5-Star Pipe Line contest last year has reignited his passion for contest riding. He currently sits among the top 120 ASP WQS surfer and plans to better that position in the coming season on tour.
There is a lot of traveling in his future as well. Along with hitting the ASP circuit hard, his focus remains on as many trips and filming he can fit into his schedule. He plans to travel his native Australia and other major heavy surf locations with FuelTV.
Body Glove is stoked to have Anthony and his new family as a part of our family. Here’s to a great 2011 and a very Happy New Year!
