NAPLES, Fla., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Snikwah UPF 50 performance apparel is pleased to announce it has been named the official shirt of the 2015 SuperGirl Jam Series WSL Pro, the world's largest surfing competition.
The free event co-sponsored by Paul Mitchell and Snikwah includes more than 100 top ranked pros from the WSL Championship tour and takes place in Oceanside, CA from July 24-26.
Some of the world-class surfers registered to compete include Alana Blanchard, Lakey Peterson, Malia Manuel, Coco Ho, Courtney Conlogue, Laura Enever, Johanne Defay, Nikki Van Dijk, Tatiana Weston-Webb, Sage Ericson and Snikwah Brand Ambassador, Jazmine Dean.
"We are excited to be a part of SuperGirl Pro and supporting such an impressive group of athletes," said Snikwah CEO Roy Smith.
Jazmine Dean will be debuting at SuperGirl Pro this year after a number of competitions worldwide where she has shown impressive rankings.
According to Dean, "I'm so stoked about SuperGirl. I've been looking forward to competing for a while now. The best surfers in the world compete there."
The competition is a make or break moment for Dean as she competes against pros she normally doesn't get to compete against.
The event will feature a weekend filled with surfing, a festival village with female inspired apparel and accessories and athlete autograph signings. Entertainment throughout the weekend includes live music, dancers, fitness classes, inspirational speakers and a food and beer garden.
As SuperGirl Pro's official apparel sponsor, Snikwah will be providing the entire event staff and each surf contestant with an Original Snikwah performance shirt. This shirt has an UPF 50+ rating. The Snikwah Original also helps regulate body temperature with Drirelease®, a fabric with wicking ability that keeps you cooler in hotter temperatures and warmer in colder temperatures.
"The Original features a patented, convertible neck that lets the wearer control the level of protection exactly where and when they you need it. It can be worn down, with the neck extended to cover your mouth, as a full buff or as a hood," the Snikwah CEO said.
Snikwah also features a line of rashgaurds called Hydros.
"The Hydros which conform to the body like a glove, are designed to protect surfers from the elements and regulate the wearers' body temperature whether they are in tropical surf or in colder waters," Smith said.
Because of these revolutionary features, Snikwah is slated to be awarded the drirelease® Innovation Award in August. The award celebrates innovation in design and construction of active wear that enhances the comfort of participants who compete or engage in high- energy pursuits.
"We are delighted to recognize Snikwah Worldwide and its commitment to superior comfort through the Snikwah Original line of shirts that balance function with everyday utility," said Darryl Schimeck, chief executive officer of Optimer Brands.
Snikwah will also display its design ingenuity at the competition with a SuperGirl Pro limited edition shirt. Proceeds will be donated to cause partner "Save Our Surf", which is dedicated to the conservation of oceans and its marine ecosystems. The charity was established in 2008 by actress and philanthropist Tanna Frederick. Frederick has recently been named to Snikwah's roster of brand ambassadors.
