First- Of- Its- Kind Product Takes Over California And New Jersey Beaches With Bi-Coastal Launch
Introduction of Must-Have Summer Product at Zack’s Pier Plaza in Huntington, CA June 1st with Belmar, NJ Boardwalk Reopening Celebration June 7th
COSTA MESA, CA – May 31, 2013 – D6 Sports, distributor and manufacturer of sporting goods focusing on the action sports and wheeled categories, today announced the debut of its first product, the SurfSkimmer, an innovative skimboard with gripper technology designed to give kids a chance to skim and advance quickly within minutes on the water.
“We are proud to announce the arrival of our first product, the SurfSkimmer,” said Jeff Balaban, Senior Vice President, D6 Sports. “We have licensed brands and produced incredible sporting goods for many years, but to unveil our very own product that also happens to fall in to a new category in action sports is very exciting to us.”
Debuting for public test runs at Zack’s Pier Plaza in Huntington Beach on June 1st, the SurfSkimmer offers kids a hands-on skimboard experience that is both fun and safe. The SurfSkimmer is designed with gripper technology, a stable handle and sleek design allowing the board to glide effortlessly over the white wash giving kids the opportunity to experiment and excel in skimboarding. The handle easily comes off so each board has the ability to act as a traditional skimboard. The 2-in-1 functionality allows for easy learning and advanced maneuvers.
D6 Sports will also join over 40 women from Social Media Moms and New Jersey Digital Moms at the #JerseyLove Retreat in Belmar, NJ June 7th. Coming from all over the country, the moms will convene for the first time ever to utilize their social reach to help raise awareness for and promote the reopening of the Jersey Shore for the 2013 summer season. Now that the official ceremonies are over, the women want to document real families, moms and kids having fun to show the world that the Jersey Shore is still a great place to vacation and visit. They will do this by experiencing it in real life and telling their stories virtually on a myriad of social media platforms.
“I am a New Jersey native who has, literally, hundreds of friends and family members who were affected by Sandy so when we learned of this event, we had to get involved,” said Ben Young, Vice President of Creative and Marketing for D6 Sports. “We have partnered with Eastern Lines Surf Shop to treat the moms to surf and stand up paddleboard lessons, while we introduce kids to the new SurfSkimmer. After the event, we will donate several boards to the local shops so people can continue to enjoy the beach all summer.”
D6 Sports and the #JerseyLove Retreat moms will also present Mayor Matt Doherty with a donation to the Belmar Relief and Recovery foundation that was created to assist displaced families and help rebuild the Belmar Boardwalk after Superstorm Sandy.
