Surf’s Up

Longtime Carlsbad resident and professional surfer Josh Kerr has teamed up with Mountain Dew to expand its California College Surf Club program. Launched in 2014 to support San Diego County college surf teams including the University of California, San Diego and Cal State University San Marcos teams, the program is now expanding outside of San Diego to support teams including University of California, Santa Barbara and California State University Fullerton. As a Mountain Dew spokesperson and sponsored athlete, Josh’s support will include interacting with the supported surf teams both on and off campus at key events including autograph signings, film screenings, surf sessions, and more. Josh shared, “I look forward to continuing this partnership with Mountain Dew and the local surf community. Last year’s program was a real success and I’m excited to expand the program beyond San Diego County to hep continue the growth of the sport within additional college communities.”

The teams will receive assistance with team dues as well as donated products from Mountain Dew. In addition, college surf club athletes will work with Josh and Rusty apparel to design and create custom team gear. The program is designed to continue to generate buzz around surfing and the active, fun, and progressive community it represents.
