Earlier this spring, 20-year-old Christian Soto had no idea of the surprise to come as he purchased his Rusty Malinoski / Rockstar signature vest at Performance Ski & Surf in Orlando, Florida. All vest and PFD purchases from participating stores have been qualifying customers for a chance to “Win A Ride” with Body Glove’s top pro riders including Rusty, Bob Soven and Harley Clifford.
So when Christian got the notification e-mail, he could hardly believe he would be spending the day riding and hanging out with Rusty on Tuesday, July 23. “I arrived at Performance at 8:30 a.m. to meet the Body Glove guys and Harley Clifford was there!” Christian said. “Then, when we got to the lake, I got to meet Rusty and Parks Bonifay. I had no idea that Bob Soven and Jeff McKee would be coming also, that was so cool.”
Christian continued to be amazed as the day progressed, “The day got even better when we got to ride behind Rusty’s brand-new MasterCraft X Star. He helped me out with awesome tips and he totally killed it. Getting to see Rusty ride in person was unbelievable. Then, we got to all have lunch and went back to Performance, where we saw Rusty on the new cover of Alliance. After that, Bob invited me to ride with him at the cable, so of course I went and it was awesome. At the end of the day, my board was full of autographs. All in all, this was the best experience of my life. Thank you Body Glove!”
