ONDA WETSUITS MARKS PRESENCE IN THE SURF VILLAGE FROM PORTUGAL POWERERD BY NAZARÉ
SEBASTIAN STEUDTNER will be the special guest of the Municipal Council of Nazaré.
ISPO Munich, the biggest fair dedicated to sports and the outdoors, is organised from 5 to 8 February and for the first time has a section dedicated to surf From Portugal. This initiative is led by the Associação Selectiva Moda, and will have the presence of four companies that specialise in this area, in partnership with the Municipal Council of Nazaré, which will be present under its slogan “Praia do Norte”.
Sebastian Steudtner is the two- time winner of the WSL Big Wave prize, in 2010 and 2015, as well as the first European to win the most prestigious prize in Big Wave Surfing.
He is known for taking on the big waves at Nazaré, and is a special guest of the Municipal Council of Nazaré to liven up the Surf Village FROM PORTUGAL space By Praia do Norte.
In addition to his presence at the space, the fair has invited him to the Spot ISPO Cool Water SurfinG, on 5 February at 4:00 pm, in order to share his experiences in Nazaré. Portugal is once again in the spotlight at this event, and will yet again have a record number of Portuguese exhibitors, presenting for the first time at a Made- In -Portugal Surf Village.
This was an idea of Helder Rosendo, general manager of P&R Têxteis, which participated last year in the fair with its brand ONDA Wetsuits, in the area designated for water sports. “Aware of the work of Selectiva Moda, I challenged them to create a space dedicated to surfing. Later on, the possibility of the Municipal Council Nazaré’s participation emerged, giving the space its name”, he explains. Furthermore, he stresses the importance of this initiative, as it “places Portugal as a surf destination”.
The Municipal Council of Nazaré received this idea enthusiastically, giving great importance to the internationalisation of the “Praia Norte” brand, which is already a world leader when it comes to “giant waves”.
The Made- In -Portugal Surf Village consists of 4 companies, namely: ONDA Wetsuits, Lightning Bolt, Original Lanyards, Shape Room and the “Praia Norte” label, which gives the space its name. The Portuguese section will be at stand 236, located in the A6 pavilion at the Munich fair.
