Reef, the global surf lifestyle leader, is pleased to announce the new toe-to-head partnership with Shannon Brown to its Canadian Team.
 
The Aussie surfer from Anna Bay, N.S.W. Australia, has been braving the cold water for the last 8-years since he relocated to Tofino, BC.  Shannon is a great technical and powerful rider, which he attributes to his hometown surf scene. “I grew up in a competitive area where it was all about rail turns and power, if you wanted to stand out your turns had to throw spray”
 
The 30-year-old goofy footer also coaches others on how to improve and enjoy their surfing as much as he does.  He’s a great community member and a role model for the young kids he coaches.  Shannon travels the globe and can be found exploring the wilderness of Vancouver Island looking for waves, which makes him a perfect ambassador of Reef’s “Just Passing Through” philosophy.
 
“Reef has always been one of my favorite brands since I was a grommet. They have and have always had a great team, they make the sickest surf movies and the product is amazing. I feel honored to have the opportunity to be part of the Reef Family in Canada.” says Brown.
 
“Shannon is a great ambassador for Reef.  He is one of the most well rounded surfers in Canada with a very technical approach to riding waves.  He’s always a contender at local events and he’s a great competitor in every endeavor he takes part in.  He is also a teacher of surfing, who is helping to develop the next generation of Canadian rippers,” adds Reef Ambassador, Pete Devries.
