Vancouver, February 23, 2016 – Today SAXX Underwear, currently the fastest growing men's underwear company in North America, announced that pro surfer Mark Healey has joined their team. The North Shore native is a big-wave surfer, award-winning spear-fisherman, free-diver, filmmaker, conservationist, Hollywood stuntman and yoga enthusiast. As Healey chases waves around the world this year, he will be featured in SAXX's new brand campaign, Free to Move. Healey will be involved in daily product development and design to help SAXX continue to innovate for active men.
"I'm excited to be partnering with SAXX," stated Mark Healey. "All of their innovative products compliment every facet of what I do. The comfort and support I get from them is a real game changer for me. Whether I'm participating in one of my pursuits, training, or just day-to-day life, SAXX's technology allows me to enjoy a level of comfort I never knew before. I look forward to working and expanding our relationship by creating some compelling and functional products that will become an essential part of every guys wardrobe.”
As a dedicated waterman, Healey practices everything from running and yoga to ginastica in order to prepare for riding the largest waves in the world. While with Healey filming his brand intro this past month, the SAXX team was lucky enough to be present the day Jaws had the biggest paddle-in waves in the past 15 years. Healey happily invited the crew along to Maui to witness one of the largest days in the history of the break. What transpired afterwards was every big wave surfers' dream, an opportunity for Healey to charge near 60-ft surf. The SAXX team captured these rare moments along with Healey's daily training.
