I have been with Storm Day Sales and the Tecnica/Blizzard Family now for 23 days and I couldn’t be more excited. I recently had the opportunity to travel back to the East Coast for the Fall Sales Meeting and the 2nd Annual Coldwater Classic. Clem informed me that there was some epic hurricane swell materializing so I grabbed every piece of neoprene I owned and headed out East a few days early. The surf was amazing. We covered all of the basis; reef breaks, beach breaks, point breaks and even one strange place that combined all three into a long right hander. We surfed from Rhode Island to New Hamshire and found better surf than we have seen all summer in California.
We arrived in NH early for the surf, and then had to buckle down to company business, luckily surfing was still included. The Tecnica/Blizzard family couldn’t be more fun. We surfed every morning and evening and still got all of the business done during the day. The sales team is more ready than ever to make sure that every person on the hill can enjoy the wonders of Flipcore skis and Cochise boots. The 2nd Annual Cold Water Classic got under way the third day and saw some serious progression in the surfing. The winner, AKA Ninja of the Year, Pat Sipe managed to pull off a mid wave board change. Here are a few photos of the surf and the sales meeting.
