Oakley Welcomes South African Rosy Hodge To The Team
Oakley is proud to announce the signing of top South African female surfing professional Rosy Hodge to their team. Rosy, who hails from East London, is a member of the elite Women’s World Tour of Surfing, and 2010 will be her fourth year competing on this top level. Qualifying for the World Tour for the first time in 2007, Rosy is now a seasoned competitor and it is time for this young talent to shine. Oakley is very stoked to have her onboard their eyewear program for 2010.
Oakley South Africa team manager Greg Emslie is a huge Rosy fan and supporter, and is more than delighted to have her on the team.
“It is a real boost for Oakley to have signed up Rosy,” said Greg of the newest member of the team. “She is a great ambassador for South African surfing and her talent, results and image suit the Oakley Women’s Program perfectly. I have watched Rosy grow up surfing in East London, really push herself and grow from strength to strength, and I feel that with the knowledge and experience she has gained, 2010 will be her best year ever!”
The talented natural-footer who grew up surfing the perfect waves of the Queensbury Bay area, is equally as pleased with the signing. “I’m super happy to be a part of the Oakley brand and I’m really looking forward to working with the whole crew.” said Rosy. “I’ve got people like Greg Emslie and Seth Hulley helping me out so I’m in really good hands and I really respect them. The support so far has been awesome and I think that 2010 is going to be a cracker!”
Rosy joins a team of girls that include Tammy Lee Smith, Stacey Guy and Roxy Louw, as well as top surfers like Davey Weare and Royden Bryson. For more information on Rosy and her travels on the World Tour check out her website.
