Print Friendly and PDF

Effective immediately, United Surf Brands has aligned with premier surf accessories manufacturer Destination Surf in a long-term distribution partnership, assuming all wholesale and direct-to-consumer sales, logistics and customer service for their entire product line including surfboard bags, traction pads and leashes. United Surf Brands will also be working closely with the brand, retailers and athletes in product development and marketing to grow brand awareness and market share both domestically and worldwide.

"As a small brand in a focused category within the surf market", states Aaron Smith, owner and co-founder of Destimation Surf, "managing sales and competing for space has always been a challenge. The partnership with United solves this for us so we can focus our attention on the brand and product line to ensure we continue to deliver what the market needs and with the signature high quality our family has stood by since 1981."

"We couldn't be happier to partner with Destination as they join the United Surf Brands family" adds Chris Dunn, United Surf Brands CEO. "We place a lot of emphasis on whole-package authenticity and credibility with the brands we work with. Our mantra is United by Surf, United by Craftsmanship. Destination illustrates these principles to a 'T'. From their epic family story to their emphasis on quality, they're a model representative of what we stand for and we're looking forward to working with them and building upon their nearly four decades in business."
