Aussie Pro Junior star hails from Currumbin

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 June, 2011 : - - Sydney -- Hurley are excited to announce the re-signing of young Australian Gold Coast surfer Mitch Crews for a further three years extending his sponsorship through to 2014. Crews blew the Australasian ASP Pro Junior Circuit apart last year by winning the series well before the completion of the year and the powerful and determined emerging Queenslander is thrilled with his new deal.

“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 show’s their commitment to me and I’m 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.

Crews has spent the first 6 months of this year preparing for his competitive campaign by staying at home training and free surfing in readiness for a serious World Qualifying Series (WQS) campaign which begins in just over one month  on August 1st   where he will take a wild card into the upcoming US Open of Surfing at Huntington Beach California.

“It’s been an incredible 6 months to free surf on  the Gold Coast, one of the most consistent and best years ever for surf and I have really worked on my surfing, fitness and overall readiness to compete on the World Qualifying Series and I’m fully prepared for it.”

Crews’s manager, former ASP World Tour elite surfer and CEO of Consolidated Sports Management John Shimooka commented on the Hurley signing by saying  - “ Mitch has been training super hard with Wes Berg on the Gold Coast and he is so ready to take on the world – he’s not only super talented, he appears to have the other necessary attributes like working hard, being determined and mentally strong to make it and to re-sign with Hurley is fantastic for him as they are a company who work well with the sport and their athletes."

Hurley Sports Marketing Manager Mitchell Ross endorsed today’s announcement saying " We are super excited to extend the partnership for a further three years with Mitch. It really feels as though he is a part of the family here at Hurley and we couldn’t be happier to see him return to the team once again. Right now Mitch is getting ready to take on the WQS which is going to be a fun journey and we are going to be there to support him."
