Hurley is just a fantastic company to be with, they are a super strong global brand and growing fast in Australia and to sign on for three years shows their commitment to me and Im really looking to rewarding that faith and chasing my goals which are firmly set around ASP World Title Tour Qualification said Crews from his home town of Currumbin on the Gold Coast today.
