It's been a 10 year journey with Slingshot and I would like to thank them for the support. Now my journey still goes on.....
BEN WILSON ON THE MOVE (Official Press Release) 30 April 2010 Coolum, Australia. Ben Wilson advised today he will be embarking on a new phase for BENWILSONSURF - and makes a special announcement to thank his collaboration with Slingshot International.
“My partnership with Slingshot Sports over the past 10 years has been one that has combined amazing foresight, understanding and a great working relationship. Their product and the team behind it have been a pleasure to work with on and off the water.
I’ve made the decision to focus on BENWILSONVISION, our elite kite camps around the globe and some new projects that link in travel with developing the sport. For me it’s time to build a new phase and take things to the next level focusing on my productions that will take kiting in the surf to mainstream media. It was a really tough decision but one that’s been a long time coming and I wanted to celebrate the successes I’ve shared with Slingshot so far”.
Ben has created a separate website that recognizes a decade to date with Slingshot and as a thank you to the management and team there – on a national andinternational level. Check out www.benwilsonsurf.com/slingshot
His new adventures take him to un-kited territory, television productions and bringing production on BENWILSONVISION to a whole new level. More energy and focus will go into the ever popular Ben Wilson Surf Kite Camps and along with a select few he’s got plans to create and capture a side of the sport that will open the connection to surfing with kiting in a major way. It’s never easy to make decisions to move forward and take a new direction when you’ve worked so long with one brand – but I feel it’s like dropping into the wave of the day – it’s all about timing.
I’m super stoked to have the chance to develop my pro career and share the sport on a broader scale with the hardcore fans and those that have yet to discover what is possible with a kite in the surf
