Body Glove welcomed professional surfer and filmmaker Hunter Jones to its athlete roster as the first of three new team additions to be announced soon.
Jones’ passion for surfing was sparked at an early age when his friend and friends’ father taught him to surf at a local break in El Porto, a beach community in the South Bay area of Greater Los Angeles in Southern California. Growing up in that area molded Jones into the beach-break surfer he is today and exposed him to key members of the surfing community.
“Being from South Bay and Body Glove being a South Bay brand, I looked up to and surfed with the guys who rode for the brand and wanted to be like them one day,” said Jones. “I even surfed with and personally knew the Meistrell family, who founded Body Glove, and it feels like I’m part of the family now with this new partnership.”
With this opportunity, Jones will wear Body Glove products in addition to creating branded content, assisting with product launches and going on trips to formally represent the brand.
“Hunter is a natural addition to the team as he truly embodies Body Glove’s idea of creating happiness and doing what you love,” says Body Glove Marketing Director Nick Meistrell. “He caught my eye years ago as a diehard local surfer kid who was always going for it with a huge smile on his face. We are thrilled to finally have him join the Body Glove family and look forward to working together to showcase his talents and spirit.”
