Jeep UK has become the official vehicle partner for non-profit, volunteer-led member organisation Surfing GB, for 2016.
As part of the sponsorship, Jeep will support Surfing GB operations, including some of the top UK surf events. The Cherokee will also be in use to support the work of the organisation in visiting surf schools and surf clubs and used on surf trips, beach visits and much more.
Surfing GB operates such events as The British Interclub Surf Club Championships and The British National Surfing Championships. Run by surfers for surfers, it also aims to deliver opportunity and support for all surfers. Whether a complete novice, passionate hobbyist or competitive sportsman, Surfing GB is driven to promote and grow surfing in Great Britain.
Andrew Cotton, big wave surfer, said: “With a shared passion for adventure Jeep UK and Surfing GB are well-suited partners. With surfing shortlisted as one of the five sports available for inclusion in Tokyo 2020 it’s an exciting time for the sport.”
“Surfing GB is super stoked to gain the support of Jeep,” said Nick Rees of Surfing GB. “In our line of work we spend a lot of time on coastal roads, dirt tracks and beaches, so this vehicle will enable us to go anywhere and do anything in style and comfort.”
