The Ron Jon Surf Shop sponsored University of Central Florida (UCF) Surf Team is preparing for a busy summer which includes an upcoming beach cleanup in Cocoa Beach, Fla, on June 16th, followed by a trip to Dana Point, California, to compete in the 2007 National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) Competition, from June 17-24.
“We’re pleased to sponsor the UCF Surf Team and have them participate in the upcoming beach cleanup and Nationals,” said Heather Lewis, marketing director for Ron Jon Surf Shop. “The Surf Team has lent its hand to creating a cleaner community by participating in Ron Jon’s local beach cleanups. Additionally, we hope they catch some great waves in California, perform well and enjoy the experience.”
The beach cleanup, which will start at 9am at Shepard Park (located behind Ron Jon Surf Shop), is open to surf fans and the general public. Cleanup supplies will be provided onsite.
As part of Ron Jon’s sponsorship of the UCF team, the Cocoa Beach-based surf retailer provides the nine-member team with surfboards, uniforms and surf accessories, and also pays for the team’s contest entry fees and travel costs, including airfare and car rentals.
