Jared has developed in to one of the leading riders in the world of performance bodyboarding since joining Turbo", says Glenn Taylor, Turbo owner and Head Shaper.

"Turbo are excited to continue our partnership with Jared, he consistently impresses in the water and his attitude out of the water has to be admired. I have been working with Jared on his board design for over 2 years now and we have perfected a Jared Houston signature board that will be released in June 2012", he adds.

Jared Houston is happy to continue working with Turbo Surf Designs. "I am over the moon to have signed on with Turbo for another 3 years. The boards are insane and I feel they are only getting started in terms of what is to come".

"Their support has been key in the growth of my career to this point and I'm looking forward to building our relationship into the future. I really believe in aligning yourself with a company and I'm so psyched to be aligned with one such as Turbo Surf Designs. We have some exciting things lined up, the first of which is my signature model board which will be available from June onwards", Houston reveals.
