Official Media Release:
(Montreal, QC)- May 20, 2015- Reef, the global surf lifestyle leader, is pleased to
announce the new toe-to-head partnership with Shannon Brown to its Canadian Team.
The Aussie surfer from Anna Bay, N.S.W. Australia, has been braving the cold water
for the last 8-years since he relocated to Tofino, BC. Shannon is a great technical
and powerful rider, which he attributes to his hometown surf scene. “I grew up in a
competitive area where it was all about rail turns and power, if you wanted to stand
out your turns had to throw spray”
The 30-year-old goofy footer also coaches others on how to improve and enjoy their
surfing as much as he does. He’s a great community member and a role model for the
young kids he coaches. Shannon travels the globe and can be found exploring the
wilderness of Vancouver Island looking for waves, which makes him a perfect
ambassador of Reef’s “Just Passing Through” philosophy.
“Reef has always been one of my favorite brands since I was a grommet. They have and
have always had a great team, they make the sickest surf movies and the product is
amazing. I feel honored to have the opportunity to be part of the Reef Family in
Canada.” says Brown.
“Shannon is a great ambassador for Reef. He is one of the most well rounded surfers
in Canada with a very technical approach to riding waves. He’s always a contender
at local events and he’s a great competitor in every endeavor he takes part in. He
is also a teacher of surfing, who is helping to develop the next generation of
Canadian rippers,” adds Reef Ambassador, Pete Devries.
