BLDG Active announced its sponsorship of professional surfer Damien Hobgood.

Currently in use by the World Surf League to treat athletes, BLDG Active’s Active Skin Repair products feature all-natural technology that works to disinfect and promote healing of skin irritations and wounds.

“We’re excited to have Damien join our team,” said Justin Gardner, co-founder and CEO of BLDG Active. “As a world renowned surfer and father, Damien is a leader both locally and in the global surf community. After years of watching surfers’ minor nicks and cuts turn into serious infections, Damien has an understanding of the importance of skin repair for anyone spending time in open water.”

Hobgood, having spent most of his life on the water, is one of the most versatile surfers in the world, with 12 years on the elite tour competing around the world.

“As a surfer, getting torn up on rocks and reef, dealing with sunburns and fighting infection from the water are daily issues,” Hobgood said. “Active Skin Repair allows me to disinfect and start the healing process right out of the water – it’s as much a part of my routine as applying sunscreen.”
