Britain’s leading Multi Location Inter-University Surf Competition and Beach Party Based Events Company has announced a partnership with a significant surf and skate brand.
Australian brand Globe have signed a year-long deal with the Student Surf Tour speculated to be worth around £30million (source unknown)
The sponsorship deal will mean that one lucky attendee at each of the 6 Inter-University Surfing Competitions for the 2012/13 Academic year will go home with Globe goodies, such as the Globe Bantam Cruiser skateboard.
Globe joins other long-term sponsors of the Student Surf Tour, which include Relentless Energy Drink and Gul Watersports.
Founded in 2011, BY students and FOR students, the event schedule for 2012/13 sees the tour revisiting Porthcawl, Watergate (or Tolcarne), Croyde and Gwithian but this year adds Scarborough and France to the roster.
The Student Surf Tour is for University Level Surfers to get together to compete and party over 5 weekends of the year with a week long vacation over the Easter Break.
Last year saw Charlotte Bayliss (Cardiff) and Sam Coad (Plymouth) crowned the first SST Champions, with Plymouth taking the overall win.
