“Hawai‘i is the birthplace of surfing. Nowadays, Hawai‘i is still the place where the limits are pushed and the boundaries are broken with it comes to surfing. Without Hawaii, the surf industry would not be where it is today and in order to be considered a legitimate brand in surfing, it is crucial to have a strong presence in Hawaii, and that is one of the many reasons we choose to advertise in Freesurf.”
