THE UPCOMING WSL SEASON
The WSL loses their title sponsor, Samsung. Full article on BeachGrit.
Former Surf Splendor guest and WSL VP of Communications Dave Prodan told BeachGrit, “That’s correct. Samsung will not be the title sponsor for the Championship Tour in 2017. The WSL’s official statement is, ‘Samsung has been a great partner for the surfing community over the past three years, elevating the sport to new heights and honoring the community’s heritage. We thank them for their partnership and look forward to an exciting 2017 season. The WSL is excited about upcoming announcements in the commercial space. More to come when available.’”
