Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 January, 2018 - Santa Cruz - You may remember Leif Engstrom from his sections in the Taylor Steele-produced, “Innersection” surf-clip contests. His entries were always a highlight, with the goofyfooter hucking and spinning every which-way like a human-slinky; blessed with an aerial act that could put a tightrope walker to shame.
With his innate sense of flight coupled with a complimentary rail and barrel game, this New York native has proven that he’s got the skills to pay the bills. Now, Engstrom will be donning Buell Wetsuits while he continues to push the limits with his acrobatic surfing.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be riding for a core surf brand like Buell.” comments Engstrom about the new partnership.“I’ve felt pretty restricted in my suits the last few years, and putting these things on was a whole new feel. Super flexible and very comfortable; I can't wait to get back in the cold and get these suits on!”
This partnership marks an eastern expansion by the Buell Wetsuits & Surf brand. By bringing the future-forward designs of wetsuit kingpin Ryan Buell to the frigid water of the Northeast, Buell will continue to blow up as one of the best “working man’s” wetsuit brands in the water -- capable of keeping you warm and cozy from Montauk to Maine and beyond. Buell Wetsuits & Surf Brand Manager Matt Rockhold is psyched to get Engstrom on the program.
“We at Buell Surf are very excited to have formed a partnership with east coaster and New York charger Leif Engstrom! He is a perfect test pilot for our cold and warm water wetsuits, spending part of his time in New York and the rest in Puerto Rico. Watch out for Leif around the world... ramping out, rushing slabs and producing sick edits! We are psyched to add Leif to our growing global roster of professional surfers! Welcome to the team, Leif!”
