Well, this just made my day. The perpetually en point peeps at Surfline just dished up a delicious dose of digital love for Sanuk's recent volunteer mission to Peru on behalf of Operation Smile. Earlier this week, I posted the photo below, shot by renowned Brian Bielmann, on my own Facebook. Next thing I know, it's featured in #SocialAbsorption, a seriously stacked screenshot gallery highlighting all things surf & social media. Let's just say, I'm pretty damn honored to be slated amongst names like Slater, Machado, Parko along with a list of other heavy hitters.
Much to our crew's delight, media coverage of this trip is beginning to surface both online and in print. Matt Meola landed the most ridiculous air he's ever done (a serious claim from the man himself) and with it the new cover of Transworld Surf. Their editors requested Alek Parker to throw some words down in a 14 page spread about what we've dubbed "a not-so-typical" surf trip. Sanuk's video team is putting the final touches on a short documentary. The list goes on... For now, hit up the links for current coverage and stay tuned for amazing things to come!
