Here’s some little bits of news from the past few weeks from the world of Surfing!
Check out some news below
Volcom get Stack!
Kicking things off, Volcom have a new surfer! Balaram Stack is the latest name to sign up with the brand. Hailing from New York, Balaram is widely considered the best ever surfer from the tri-state area.
He has been surfing since childhood and started building up his huge reputation at age 11. As well as Volcom, Balaram is also sponsored by Skullcandy, Dragon and Vestal. He was even snapped up by Quiksilver at the age of 12!
Best of luck at Volcom, Balaram!
Surfing Death in Reunion 🙁
Unfortunately, there has been another surfer killed by a shark attack on Reunion Island. The man, on his honeymoon, was bitten on the arm and thigh by the shark, before going into cardiac arrest and respiratory arrest. Resuscitation was tried but the man could not be revived. (AFP)
This isn’t the first time such a tragedy has occurred on Reunion Island and now local surfers want a vast marine reserve closed. They believe this is the cause of a large amount of sharks in the area. Calls for local government to help surfers and swimmers more were also made.
Surfing can be dangerous. Be careful. RIP.
