January 28, 2009 / Press Release
Indonesian surfer Made Awan has signed a three-year sponsorship deal which will see him riding for Rusty surfboards and apparel until the end of 2011.
“I’m really excited to start the year fresh with new boards under my feet” said the smiling regular-foot. “It feels great to represent a growing company that backs me 100%.”
In 2008 the 25-year-old finished the year with a career-best 4th overall ranking on the Coca-Cola ISC Tour. The highlight was a victory at the Rusty Rumble In Da Jungle event held in 6-foot Sanur perfection.
The win got the attention of Rusty GM Kane Faint who is now stoked to welcome Awan to the family:
“Awan’s surfing really bloomed last year. He was motivated in heats and proved that he can perform in all conditions. He’s a great addition to our team and I’m looking forward to seeing him reach his full potential.”
Look out for Awan at his local break Serangan or shredding island-wide alongside fellow Rusty riders Marlon Gerber and Agus Pernawan.
