Official Media Release:
(Montreal, QC)- May 27, 2015- Reef, the global surf lifestyle leader, announces its
new toe-to-head partnership with Michael Darling to its Canadian Team.
Michael aka Waterspider represents the new generation of surfers in Canada. The 20
year-old regular foot from Tofino, BC is an ideal fit to the Reef Canadian team as
he is always exploring different spots and planning his next adventure to find new
waves. Living on the edge of the Pacific Ocean he has spent countless hours in the
water with his family and friends, he has a very good ocean sense whether it’s on
the water or in it.
Michael’s constant determination to push his surfing to new levels is incredibly fun
to watch. With his personal style of surfing he’s definitely going to be a stand
out in the water wherever his travels take him. Darling is a great fit for the Reef
team as he believes in the journey, believes in the conservation of the ocean as
well as surfing his brains out.
“Whenever I see a Reef ad or video it’s easy to notice the positive, stoked attitude
of the riders and models. I’m really excited to be joining a team that has a goal of
being the best and most positive influence on surfing culture. With high quality
products and very positive support for their athletes, I couldn’t imagine a better
brand to be partnering with.” says Darling.
“Michael has developed into one of Canada’s best young surfers over the last few
years. He spends countless hours in the water and I see him pushing himself
constantly. His fast and explosive technique make him exciting to watch. I look
forward to seeing where he takes his surfing in the years to come,” adds Reef
Ambassador, Pete Devries.
