Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 6 April, 2009 : - - Irvine - Sanuk, proprietors of comfort, climb to the top of a large hill and scream out the additions of Alek Parker and Balaram Stack. The frizzy hair of Floridas Alek Parker and the city life of New Yorks Balaram Stack are voting Sanuk for 2009. Both young surfers look to expand on their promising careers with an impressively rigorous schedule of competitions, documented worldwide adventures, and soft bocce.
Im really pleased to be with Sanuk, says Alek. My hair doesnt quite bounce right if my feet arent comfortable. Im glad to have them as comfortable as ever! Balaram was equally as excited, Sanuk is a great company. Im looking forward to flying the flag this year and showing everyone what I am capable of.
James Crush, Sanuks Marketing Manager, added: The addition of both young surfers is great for us. To have that presence in Florida and especially up in New York is fantastic. Were excited to see what comfortable feet can do for them.
