Even better is to have that alpha influencer seek your boards. Creek had to work at getting one here. He was in love with Sunova long before any formal arrangements were made...they fortunately recognized his value and made him an ambassador. I'd be very interested to see Sunova's sales numbers pre and post Creek. I know a Creek model is on my list for someday.

Yay.

My favorite rider joins my favorite SUP brand.

Mo joins Rogue. Glad to see Rogue back in the game.

Curious how this will affect Pat Rawson's relationship with Mo. Hard to imagine Mo having anyone else shaping his surf sups.

Had a fun chat with Pat. Surf sups will have PR on the left rail, just like Izzy!

Not sure what "Public Relations on the left rail" or "Pat Rawson on the left rail" means so I am sure I have your acronym wrong...

Izzy's boards are shaped by Pat. A subtle PR (for Pat Rawson) is on the left rail of her boards.

Mo's surf sups will be shaped by Pat. With the same discreet PR logo..

Got it!  I guess I always figured Izzy surfed the Starboard Pro line.  It is always interesting to see the SIC boards painted in other manufacturer colors for the Molokai races...

Looks like an overall great move for Mo to be backed by a bigger and more established company with feet in a broader range of water sports... and he is aiming to enter WSL QS events too...
