WaveJet is thrilled to announce that Florida-based power surfer Peter Mendia has been named as a Global Brand Ambassador and Team Rider for Team WaveJet.
“We could not be more excited about welcoming Peter to Team WaveJet, he and his family have been friends of the brand for two years now, and he has been using WaveJet longboard systems as tools at Mendia Boarding School since its inception. Peter is really one of the best guys in our industry, and his exuberance, his power and his passion for surfing on every level match exactly with what WaveJet is about.”
Peter is one of the surf industry’s most beloved goofy-footers known for his show stopping cutbacks, for packing massive barrels and for putting it on rail like none other. A professional surfer for 24 years, Mendia is also the head of a family of 4 and the owner of the Palm Beach-headquartered, Billabong-sponsored Mendia Boarding School. He is the perfect combination of high performance and lifestyle surfing, marrying athleticism with fun, both of which make him the perfect addition to Team WaveJet.
Mendia joins team riders Cory Lopez, Garrett McNamara and Jesse Billauer. He is also sponsored by Billabong, Proctor Surfboards, Freak Traction, Zippo, Nomad Surf Shop, Fin-S and Electric.
