Started in 2008, Weedmaps is the world’s first and largest marijuana technology and media company. This week, the company is ushering in a new chapter on the North Shore with its Pipe House experience, seen below.
Eric Sorensen, Weedmaps sports director, says, “In my role with Weedmaps, as marijuana becomes further legalized around the country and world, I’m helping integrate our brand into the lifestyle sector of extreme sports. We’ve created brand and team sponsorships, helped place our athletes and teams in exhibition and competitive events, while also helping to provide a relaxed and holistic environment for athletes who benefit from both the medicinal and recreational attributes of Cannabis.”
The company’s activation on the North Shore serves to provide a relaxed and organic place for all athletes who are in town for the event, Sorensen says.Weedmaps’ doors are open to athletes in Oahu who are either spectators or involved in some of the official and unofficial sporting events taking place in the next few weeks.
Weedmaps is bringing their surf, skate, moto and MMA teams to the North Shore where they will also create original filmed content intended for their audience.
The focus is on health and wellness through great meals created with local and organic products and also daily group work outs in MMA and yoga.
During the week of December 8-15, Weedmap athletes from the skate team will be attending, including Boo Johnson, Tommy Sandoval, Braydon Szafranski, Marius Syvanen, and Aaron "Jaws" Homoki. Athletes attending from the surf team include Bruce Irons, Dustin Barca, Joel Tudor, and Nathan Fletcher, alongside Tyler Bergman, who will be representing the company’s Moto team.
