I recently ran into my new ambassador, Peggy Oki, at the local rocking climbing gym in Ventura, California. I have seen Peggy at the gym for a few years now but have never talked to her. After watching the film, “Dog Town & Z-Boys”, I discovered that she was in that documentary video. I have also read about her in a few articles. I knew that she was a multi sport, environmental activist and thought she would be a great athlete ambassador for my company.
After a few back and forth emails, I ran into her again at the local rock climbing gym. We talked and exchanged ideas and now, the Newf Surfboard Net Company has Peggy Oki as one of its ambassadors. In addition, the company will be supporting her “Origami Whale Project” in its “One Percent for the Planet” sponsorships.
Now, Peggy and I talk for long periods on the phone about sports, environmental issues, and life in general. She is a wonderful passionate person, and I am excited to have her on board.
