Dion Agius Goes Big Committing to Another Multi-Year Deal With Globe
El Segundo, CA. February 28th—Dion Agius, one of the most talked about and filmed free surfers of the 21st Century, has once again signed a multi-year agreement to ride for Globe Clothing and Shoes. Dion, who has racked up an amazing list of Surf video appearances, is known as one of the most visually exciting surf stars on the international scene. Dion’s incredible surfing and globetrotting shenanigans are all well documented on his popular blogs (www.globe.tv/dion and www.proxynoise.com).
The renewed commitment to Globe comes just as Dion is about to release his first Signature Shoe—Le Zan—a unique, fashion forward lifestyle shoe that will come in both a high and low version. Le Zan, with a certain military meets Soho vibe, is the first item of a larger signature line Dion will be putting out with Globe over the next few years, featuring clothing, shoes and accessories. Dion’s line will simply be known as the “+/+” collection.
Dion’s recommitment to Globe also comes as the brand’s highly anticipated YEAR ZERO (0000) surf film nears completion, with a release date set for this summer at the US OPEN of SURFING. The film, a visual feast of some of the best surfers with an apocalyptic theme, features Dion prominently throughout, along with CJ and Damien Hobgood, Taj Burrow, Yadin Nicol and Nate Tyler.
“Dion will continue to be a driving creative force for the Globe surf brand, especially with our new film effort, YEAR ZERO, and will now be designing, developing and wearing some of the most innovative products Globe has ever offered,” said Globe’s CEO, Matt Hill. Adding, “Dion has been such a great force in Globe’s surf program since 2007 and with this renewed and upgraded agreement, we are really excited for our future with Dion.”
Dion adds, “It’s been a wild 4 years with Globe. I’d have to say hands down the most amazing and fun years of my life so far… The freedom that Globe’s given me to pursue pretty much whatever I have wanted to do has been amazing. It’s the job I used to dream about as a young kid and I’m absolutely over the moon to continue working with such a forward thinking collective of people. Keep the fun times rolling!”
Globe is a unique action sports brand—built on a heritage of surfing and skateboarding—with a healthy disrespect for the established way of doing things. Today, Globe serves the worldwide action sports culture through an authenticity that is apparent in its forward, stylish, and functional designs. Globe’s continuous support and dedication to the action sports is evident in its long list of team riders and events worldwide, including, but not limited to: Free Surfing Savant Dion Agius, World Champion surfers Mark Occhilupo and CJ Hobgood, top (WCT) surfers Damien Hobgood and Taj Burrow; professional skateboarders Rodney Mullen, Mark Appleyard, Chris Haslam, and David Gonzalez; as well the “United By Fate” and “0000″ brand projects.
