Big wave hellman Shane Dorian extends Reef contract for three more years
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 April, 2015 - Carlsbad, California – Reef will continue its support for Global Ambassador, Shane Dorian, through 2018.
The 42-year-old regularfoot from Kona, Hawaii has been on the Reef program for five years. He’s one of the most respected surfers in the world, having continually pushed the limits of big wave surfing through his long and storied career.
“I’m excited about continuing my partnership with Reef. It’s an honor to be part of such a great team, and I’m looking forward to many more adventures and experiences,” says Dorian.
Dorian surfed the ASP World Tour for 11 years. He took first on the World Championship Tour’s Billabong Pro France and Rip Curl Bells Beach Pro. He has also logged six Billabong XXL titles including both “Ride of the Year” and "Pacifico Tube Award” in 2013. In 2012, the Surf Industry Manufacturer’s Association named him “Waterman of the Year.” And this year, Dorian has two massive waves nominated for the World Surf League’s Billabong XXL “Ride of the Year.”
"Shane has set the bar high for over two decades and continues to elevate the sport of surfing as well as Reef's entire Surf Program. We want to welcome Shane to many more years of Ambassadorship to come,” adds Reef Ambassador Manager, Shea Perkins.
Today, Dorian continues to live on the big island with his wife and son, while chasing the world’s biggest waves, as well as continuing the annual "Keiki Classic," a grassroots Hawaiian youth event he has been running in his hometown for 20 years.
