Having such comfort in tumultuous conditions, we are eager to see what Jamie can do on our lineup of electric skateboards and how he can incorporate extended riding sessions into his typical training regimen in between swells.
BOCA RATON, Fla. (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
FiiK USA is excited to announce the addition of Jamie Sterling, from the North Shore of Oahu, to the family of brand ambassadors representing its prestigious Electric Skateboard Division.
Sterling—who began surfing at the early age of 5—is one of the few people in the world who conquers 50-foot waves. He has forged a successful career of chasing waves of consequence all over the globe. As a consummate professional, his life is encompassed in the pursuit of preparedness, health, fitness, and knowledge of the crafts he uses to navigate such death-defying surfing conditions. From his early years as an Ocean Lifeguard in Southern California, having an educated approach to the conditions at hand has been the foundation of his big wave career. Sterling has accomplished impressive finishes at numerous events on the Big Wave World Tour, where he has proven that he is well equipped to be a perennial contender to be the best in the world.
Consequently, Sterling has become a regular fixture at the world’s heaviest locales like Cortez Bank, Jaws, Mavericks, Dungeons, Teahupoo, Todos Santos, Chile’s El Buey and El Bajo. Sterling is the 2006 Billabong XXL Performer of the Year, placed 3rd in the Mavericks Invitational in 2008, was the Pico Alto Invitacional Peru Champ in 2010, is the 2011 Big Wave World Tour Champion, and is an invitee to the 2014 Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational event, as well as the 2015 Titans of Mavericks Invitational.
“As one of the first faces of GoPro cameras, Jamie has been blowing the minds of surfers and surf fans alike with his video edits from his camera sponsor since the beginning, which has set the stage for the company’s rampant growth pattern and the way we mere mortals can only hope to try to document our lives,” said FiiK USA’s National Sales and Marketing Manager, Chris Sears.
Sterling is also a staunch advocate of yoga, which he integrates into his everyday life in conjunction with CrossFit and a healthy nutritional plan. “Having such comfort in tumultuous conditions, we are eager to see what Jamie can do on our lineup of electric skateboards and how he can incorporate extended riding sessions into his typical training regimen in between swells,” said Aaron Parkinson, Chief Executive Officer of FiiK USA.
With his addition to FiiK’s group of brand ambassadors, Sterling joins current team riders Joel Parkinson, Bede Durbidge, Owen Wright, Tyler Wright, Oney Anwar, Pete Mendia, Chuck Patterson, Reno Makani, and Corey Howell. Sterling’s current list of sponsors include FiiK USA GoPro, Kaenon Polarized, Rusty Surfboards, Sera's Surf 'N Shore, Matuse Wetsuits, Crossfit 760, Future Fins, and Lululemon.
