Jason Slezak Is on Patagonia’s Ambassador Team

Liquid Force, REAL Watersports and Dakine-sponsored pro kiteboarder Jason Slezak, after forging a strong relationship with Patagonia, has officially joined the Patagonia ambassador team. Patagonia Inc is a leading designer of core outdoor, surf and sport-related apparel, equipment, footwear and accessories; it is based in Ventura, California.

As a member of the Patagonia ambassador team, team that includes Gerry Lopez, the Malloys, Dan Ross, Wayne Lynch, Kohl Christensen and other talented athletes, Jason will offer the company with kiting-specific insight into the design of surf and water related products. With Jason’s help, Patagonia will be able to perfect its multi-sport gear and will be able to offer even better, long-lasting, multi-sport products. Jason will provide feedback and Patagonia will use it in the development process of its ocean-focused products.

Patagonia’s Surf Director, Jason McCaffrey, had this to comment on Jason joining the ambassador team:
“We’ve known Jason for years – he was a good friend long before we asked him to come on board as an athlete. Jason has been kiting practically since the inception of the sport and is one of the most well-rounded riders out there. Whether it’s wake style, big airs, waves or snow, he crushes it. He’s also an amazing snowboarder, wakeboarder, passionate surfer and used to be an avid whitewater kayaker. He fits into the Patagonia crew perfectly.”

Jason had this to comment on him joining the Patagonia ambassador team:
“I am so stoked to have been chosen to be part of the Patagonia Ambassador program. The wetsuits, outerwear, travel gear and clothing are all amazing and the foundation that the company is built on has been something that I have admired for years. I could not be more proud and honored. Having the support of Patagonia, a brand that has that same DNA and is filled with like-minded people with the same outlook on life, makes me ecstatic about the future.”

And he  went on to say the following:
“I have always had a great time hanging, kiting, and surfing with the crew each fall when they journey to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for their annual east coast dealer camp. The entire crew is so passionate about having fun, sessioning each and every day and making quality products that only make those sessions better. I’m honored to officially be a part of the team.”
