WickrX Super Sessions celebrates the world of women’s big-wave surfing
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 November, 2014 - Wickr was founded by the strong belief that private communication is a universal human right that is extremely important to a free society. Private communication is the most powerful non-violent weapon we have to give power to the people to build a strong social system. With this weapon, we can create evolution instead of revolution. Human evolution is core to the mission at Wickr. So today, we are launching the WickrX Foundation, an organization dedicated to advancing, promoting and supporting human greatness and evolution in all its forms.
Grete Eliassen – pro skier, X-Games gold medalist and the most recent addition to the Wickr team – is a prime example of an individual whose talent and hard work have inspired us to create WickrX. She sums it up nicely: “WickrX was created to help propel remarkable people to their fullest potential. It’s a foundation that speaks to me personally, and one that I’m proud to be a part of.”
Our inaugural project, also announced today, is WickrX Super Sessions, which will celebrate the phenomenal talent in the world of women’s big-wave surfing. In partnership with big-wave icon and documentary filmmaker Grant Washburn, we will be documenting the personal stories and Super Sessions of the best female surfers in the world. As our athletes participate in WickrX Super Sessions over the coming months, fans and followers will be able to get a rare glimpse into the lives of these remarkable women via interviews, video footage of their best sessions and other exclusive content.
WickrX Super Sessions is the first of many initiatives that we hope will place a special spotlight on the extraordinary people of the world. We are so excited for all that is to come!
Keep in mind that some of the Super Sessions content will be available exclusively through a Wickr live stream. You can get more details on the production here, and in the meantime, be sure to download Wickr for iOS or Android.
