The biggest happening of my career and the start of a long term relationship with the best bodyboard company in the world.Im stoked to say the least and will do a nice big update soon!
Turbo Surf Designs is pleased to announce emerging star, Jared (Jerry) Houston has signed a long term contract to join the Turbo Global team.
Jerry is 20 years of age and without a doubt one of the hottest emerging talents in the sport of bodyboarding. Jerry is a proud South African who now spends the majority of his time in Australia, refining his riding in all conditions. Jerry was one of the stand outs of the Hawaii season in 2010, capping off the season with an impressive 3rd place finish in the IBA Turbo Bodyboards Pipeline Pro.
Turbo will be providing Jerry the financial backing to follow the IBA World Tour, along with the support to participate in some exciting new concept trips in the coming months.
Glenn Taylor, Head Shaper of Turbo Surf Designs, said the following in relation to Jerry joining the team:
"We are stoked to have Jerry join the team, his riding ability along with his attitude both in and out of the water are impressive considering he is still only 20 years old. He has a huge future in the sport. We actually were in discussions with Jerry for the Turbo team prior to the Pipe event but he simply left us with no choice after his performance at the event. Jerry will start off riding the iconic Turbo IV board and I look forward working with him on board design over the coming years."
Jerry said the following in relation to signing with the Turbo team:
"I am absolutely pumped on being a part of the Global Turbo team, I really like the image Turbo holds within bodyboarding and the boards are at the forefront of performance and durability. I am really looking forward to traveling and competing with the rest of the team in 2010, all the guys shred and I feel really privileged to be a part of Turbo's big plans for the future. I know it's going to take a lot of work, but with the epic support I'm getting, I feel really confident that I can achieve good things this year!"
