World top bodyboarder Damian King has signed a three year deal with Turbo Bodyboards, a company from Port Macquarie, King's hometown.
In his blog, the Australian athlete says that «what has impressed me the most about Turbo, and one of the key reasons why I am excited by the change, is Turbo is an ethical brand with good morals. Even at a local level I have watched Turbo get behind our local club and show support to the younger generation and amateur competitors. I am a passionate person and this now translates into the board company I ride for. These ethics are important to me, and something I feel was lacking with my previous sponsor».
Damian King will work closely with shaper Glenn Taylor in order to produce a signature model in the next months.
The Australian finished the 2009 IBA World Tour in 31st place. He has won two IBA World Championships, in 2004 and 2005.
