Released on: December 08, 2014, 7:02 am (EST)
Boca Raton, FL, December 08, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- FiiK USA is pleased to announce the addition of pro surfer Peter Mendia to the illustrious group of brand ambassadors representing its Electric Skateboard Division (http://fiikelectricskateboards.com).
Among the most renowned surfers in the country, Florida-based Mendia has been surfing professionally for more than 20 years. He is the epitome of the kind of raw and powerful talent that charges heavy conditions with finesse and confidence, according to National Sales and Marketing Manager Chris Sears. “Pete’s insatiable thirst to chase large swells puts him in heavy scenarios across the globe; yet, he always looks as comfortable as he does while packing huge lefts on special occasions at home,” Sears said. “He hails from West Palm Beach—just down the road from our corporate offices—which should come in handy during typical Florida flat spells and when his Billabong-sponsored Mendia Boarding School is in session.”
Aaron Parkinson, Chief Executive Officer of FiiK USA, adds: “We look forward to seeing the incorporation of FiiK’s Electric Skateboard lineup in his surf camps, which will enable him to provide his students lessons in power surfing, speed control, and just keeping it fun when Palm Beach County is in its typical summer doldrums.”
Although Mendia is a highly esteemed surf pro, he is also known as a devoted husband and father who strives to involve his family in his life as much as possible. Not surprisingly, his children share his talent and penchant for surfing, evolving into mini chargers. Whether he’s sharing his passion with his own children, at his boarding school or with his peers, Mendia promotes the concept that surfing is ultimately about having fun.
Mendia joins current team riders Joel Parkinson, Bede Durbidge, Owen Wright, Tyler Wright, Oney Anwar, Reno Makani and Corey Howell. In addition to representing FiiK USA and Billabong, Mendia is also sponsored by Proctor Surfboards, Freak Traction, Zippo, Nomad Surf Shop, Fin-S, Electric, and WaveJet.
