SLINGSHOT SIGNS SHREDTOWN TO THE GLOBAL WAKE TEAM!
Hood River, OR (Tuesday, December 7th, 2010) Slingshot Sports is proud to announce they have signed Shredtown to a three year sponsorship agreement. Shredtown (Andrew Adams, Chris Abadie & Davis Griffin) will be joining Slingshot’s Global Wake Team for the 2011 – 2013 seasons.
According to Wade Wagley, Wake Brand Manager of Slingshot, “We are very excited to have signed the Shredtown crew. They share our passion for innovation, and our drive for change in an industry that has just begun to uncover the endless possibilities that can come from the creativity, and fresh ideas we have witnessed in the riding of these talented young athletes. From day one we have told them this is why we make wakeboards.” Wagley went on to say, “We have big plans for these guys, which will include signature Shredtown board and boots designs, and other branded products to follow. Slingshot is proud of the opportunity to support the Shredtown vision, as they rise to the next level, and inspire riders all around the world.”
In the last two years, Shredtown has undoubtedly created some of the biggest waves our industry has ever seen. Through their website and videos, the trio of young riders have inspired us all, and changed what it means to be a wakeboarder with their creativity and willingness to shred just about anything in sight.
Today, Shredtown is an international wakeboarding icon. Owning some of the most viral web initiatives our sport has seen yet, they climbed their way to the top without winning a single contest; changing the way we approach the sport, and inspiring us to have fun doing what we love.
