Joe Way Paddle for Life team help British Surfing Champion launch new website
British surf champion and Newquay boy, Tom Butler has recently launched his own exciting, brand and celebrates the launch with a slick, new website and logo.
The new website www.tbsurfing.com designed by Scott Dickinson, will allow fans to follow Tom's progress by providing various links to social media platforms such as Twitter, YouTube and Face Book. The new easy to use website will list all of Tom's events via an online calendar and will offer unique coaching packages by the surfing champion himself.
Part of the custom built surfing package will take place at the Quiver factory, Quiver being one of Tom's sponsors. The tours itinery will include lunch with a talk about techniques, followed by a factory tour to give fans an insight into what goes into making surfboards. Following the 'surfing green eco experience,' the website now allows its audience to register via an online booking process; this in turn gives the user the chance to take an in-depth and insightful view into the world of surfing.
Tom said "I have always been really competitive and determined, before I started surfing in competition I took part in surf life saving and played football, both at a high national level. I love to compete with my friends and brothers, and am always going toe to toe with them all."
The website and branding has been a partnership between Tom and the Joe Way Paddle for life team. The Joe Way story has inspired many people to help with fundraising including other successful surfers such as Ben Skinner (Skindog) and Alan Stokes.
Matt Way, Joe's Dad Said; 'This was a great opportunity to give something back to Tom and support one of Newquay's surfers to develop within the sport he loves. This will also give Joe's paddle a lot of coverage at all of the surfing competitions and help to boost the popularity of this, now annual event"
Tom continues "My main aims and goals I am setting myself for 2010. Firstly to improve my UK Pro Surf Tour ranking finishing 2nd last year I only have one way to go being crowned the champ at the end of this season. Secondly we have some of the best big wave spot's in the world here in the Great British Isles; I get most excited in the sea when conditions are big and challenging. I'm going to be pushing myself in the bigger stuff a lot this year and can't wait for the first big swell's to start hitting our coasts. I'll be setting off on a fair few surf trips over the course of 2010 taking a jet ski (sponsored by Cornwall entertainment) with the intentions of finding the biggest barrels out there to ride".
The original Paddle for Life started after lifeguards from Fistral Beach held a Joe Way memorial paddle to raise money for the charity in 2008.
