Komunity Project Adds Roy Powers To Already Stacked Team

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

roy powersI’m not sure if anyone has noticed….But Komunity Project is quietly putting together one of the most deeply talented teams in all of surfing. They just added another ASP Top 45 surfer, Kauai’s Roy Powers, to their list of rock-star surfers and this only bodes well for the continuing growth and exposure of Komunity Project. Adding Powers to a line-up that already includes two of the best young surfers in the world in Jeremy Flores and Dane Reynolds ensures KP with plenty of arsenal for years to come.

If there were ever any doubt that Kelly Slater’s brilliance, innovation, and fluidity in the water would transfer over to his business sense, he is quickly putting that to rest. I’ve watched this company closely over the past several months and have come away impressed with everything Komunity Project is about. Their product designs on their traction pads, leashes, and surf bags are distinct and easily recognizable. This was has been especially evident while watching Kelly on the way to wins in the first two events of the 2008 WCT. Dane, Jeremy, Roy, the Gudauskas brothers, and many more of surfings young stars will continue to put Komunity all over the map and surf-shops everywhere will be flooded with grommets wanting to use the same equipment they see their idols ride.

Trials Start Today at Snapper

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

mick fanning world tourAmidst speculation that recent weeks of being hammered by La Nina weather had ripped out a lot of the sand that makes Snapper Rocks the world-class break that it is, it appears that all is well as the Komunity Project Trials of the 2008 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast are set to get underway at Snapper. As of last night most of the Gold Coast was in the 4-6 ft. range with winds blowing offshore. If the pattern continues to hold it there will be some very rippable conditions.

Earlier in the week, ASP Tour President Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew voiced his concern over the havoc wreaked by the storms that have pounded the Gold Coast.

Two weeks ago I was still concerned, but desirable conditions have since cooperated in streaming sand back into Snapper and with another week’s pumping I think we’ll be okay.

It looks like Rabbit was right on and Snapper appears to be coming to form. With as stoked as we all are on this years tour, did we really think it would happen any other way?

The 16 trialists are Dale Richards (AUS), Clay Marzo (HAW), Chris Salisbury (AUS), Troy Brooks (AUS), Garrett Parkes (AUS), Alain Riou (PYF), Ry Craike (AUS), Shane Bevan (AUS), Tamaroa McComb (PYF), Jadson Andre (BRA), Trevor Tripcony (AUS), Corey Ziems (AUS), Jay Phillips (AUS), Mitch Coleburn (AUS) and Blake Ainsworth (AUS).
