Ocean Minded™ is proud to announce the addition of world-renowned waterman, Chuck Patterson, to its team of versatile Brand Ambassadors. Patterson, from Dana Point, CA has established a global reputation for continually pushing his physical and mental limitations, which has brought him to excel in numerous water-based disciplines, including traditional surfing, stand up paddling (SUP), kite surfing, and tow-in surfing.
“I look forward to building a strong relationship with Ocean Minded, and I am very happy to be working with a company that lives up to their brand values”, said Patterson, via email from Tahiti. “We have some great ideas for upcoming summertime events, and I look forward to seeing them come to fruition”.
Patterson’s passion for life pushes him to go further and harder in everything, and he is always searching for extreme adventure and competition. On May 30th, 2009, Patterson utilized his non-stop training regiment to win the 8 mile 14ft SUP race in 1 hour and 29 minutes at the 2009 Hobie/ Hennessey Waterman Challenge.
“We are thrilled to have Chuck traveling around the world as an Ocean Minded Brand Ambassador”, stated the company’s Marketing Director, Bob Tanner. “He embodies the ocean/beach lifestyle, symbolizes the four pillars of our brand – Quality, Authenticity, Responsibility, Community – and is an extremely well-respected, all-around waterman”.
