"Water Inspired, Land Proven"
Redondo Beach, CA – Body Glove International is excited to announce their licensing agreement with Made in Mars to create a line of innovative, performance orientated skateboards, longboards and cruiser boards.
The Body Glove skateboards are specifically designed for cross discipline training for board sport athletes, to increase their style when they are not in the water. Whether you want to perfect your wakeboarding skills or tune up on your surfing during flat spells, these are the boards for you. These boards directly correlate with the surfing lifestyle and are a perfect addition to any active household.
Richard Pyles, Vice President of Made in Mars states, "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Body Glove to develop this new initiative in skating innovation."
"There is a long standing tradition of style within the surf and wake cultures. Skateboarding enhances the participant’s ability to incorporate style into their carving, 360’s and general riding. This is why we feel it is important for us to create this line of high quality boards," says Scott Daley, Vice President of Marketing for Body Glove International.
Body Glove skateboards will be available in core shops, better sporting goods and lifestyle retailers later this summer.
