This summer, Ocean Minded has a ton of ways for our friends at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Expo to get involved with our brand and be Ocean Minded! During the Open Air Demo Day on Tuesday, July 30th Ocean Minded supported Brand Ambassadors, Chuck Patterson, Candice Appleby, Gillian Gibree and Anthony Vela as they helped show attendees test out the latest and greatest from leading SUP brands, such as Riviera Paddlesurf, Naish Hawaii, Surftech, Boardworks, and 404 SUP, in addition to providing buckets and trash pickers for a self-activiated lake clean-up at the Pineview Reservoir in Utah.
Next up is the Ocean Minded Hat Happy Hour, which will kick off on Thursday, August 1st from 4-6pm and will feature a free hand-pressed hat giveaway and Brand Ambassador meet, greet and signing with Chuck Patterson, Candice Appleby and Anthony Vela from 4:30-5:30pm.
On Friday, August 2nd, Ocean Minded has teamed up with Riviera Paddlesurf for a co-branded happy hour, where we’ll be giving away two hand-painted Riviera Paddles from legendary artist, Drew Brophy, and a prize pack from Ocean Minded featuring styles from the new RuffOut Collection! Attendees will also enjoy ice-cold beverages and hang out with Ocean Minded & Riviera team rider, Thomas Maximus!
Wrapping up a long week of events, Ocean Minded will partnered with United by Blue for the Jordan River Cleanup, immediately following the happy hour on Friday, August 2nd from 6:15-8:30pm. The cleanup will be held at the Jordan River Park and complimentary shuttles will run from the South end of the Salt Palace Convention Center to the park at 6:15pm and 6:30pm.
