Heavy-duty hanger company, Dritek, to sponsor Under-16 division

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 March, 2015 - Newquay, Cornwall - Newquay-based product design company ‘Dritek (Ltd)’ have been named as the ‘Under 16 Boys’ sponsor for the 2015 UK Pro Surf Tour.

Dritek’s flagship product, the Dritek Hanger, is the toughest, most versatile garment hanger, and the only hanger specifically designed to hang heavy garments both insdoors and outdoors, and is therefore ideal for hanging wetsuits, drysuits, waterproofs and outdoor clothing.

The Managing Director of Dritek, Mark Jones, said “We’re so proud to be in a position to be a title sponsor of the UK Pro Surf Tour and to really get involved with an industry we love.  And, the U16s Boys is a really exciting category as it’s at that age that the competitors really start to push their limits and express themselves in the water.  There’ll be some really awesome surfers competing for this title as it can be an important gateway to a career as a professional surfer”.

There are six events on the ‘Dritek Under 16 Boys UKPSA Tour’, and takes in some of the UKs best surf spots, including Fistral, Watergate Bay and Thruso, with the winners being announced at the UK Surf Awards, in Newquay, in November.

Mark Jones continues “We’re really excited about being at the events and seeing all of the action, close up.  We know the southwest venues really well, however Scarborough and Thurso will be great experiences, and I’m sure we’ll find time to surf in too”.
