Surfing New Zealand hits the Beach with Volkswagen
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles New Zealand has announced that it will be partnering as the official vehicle supplier for Surfing New Zealand.
Delivering nationwide initiatives from community projects through to domestic and international events, the team at Surfing New Zealand will now be travelling to regions far and wide in the Amarok V6.
“The nature of surfing sees our community traversing the country in search of waves and prime weather conditions” said Surfing New Zealand General Manager Ben Kennings.
“Our initiatives are no different with events, learn to surf programmes, development courses and camps plus community activities staged from Northland to Otago. To be able to team up with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, who will help us get around our coastline, is amazing” added Kennings.
Volkswagen has long been synonymous with surfing culture both in New Zealand and Worldwide dating back to the 60s with the iconic Kombi and Beetle. The Volkswagen fleet now includes the likes of the popular Amarok V6 which will be used by Surfing New Zealand, through to the much-loved California camper which like the Kombi brings the freedom of exploring to life.
“The local surfing community plays a big role in generating passion for the sport. We are excited to be able support local kiwis on the New Zealand surfing stage” says Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles General Manager Kevin Richards.
“As a brand with an appetite for exploring and freedom on the road, partnering with Surfing New Zealand will help us continue that historical journey”.
Keep a look out for the Surfing New Zealand Amarok on New Zealand surf beaches and at our events and programmes throughout the country.
It won't take much convincing
Turn heads on the street or turn it loose in the bush with the best ute around. The powerful V6 engine and the legendary stability of the ladder frame chassis make for a ute that’s more than capable of tackling even the toughest terrain. Add to that 4MOTION 4X4 with optional rear differential lock, and it’s no wonder the Amarok is one of the best in the business.
