East Coast Surfing Hall of Famer and legend Mike Tabeling is moving to a new internal role with Global Surf Industries. Mike has been the face of GSI on the West Coast of the USA for the past 7 years. Mike’s new role will see him heading up our consumer contact division that handles all communication with surfers via our Website emails, Live Chat Sessions and 800 number. Mike has a deep passion for surfing and helping to ensure people are getting the right board to enhance their surfing is a top priority.
Mike’s old Territory Manager role has been filled by Alex AJ Pappas formerly of Santa Cruz. AJ takes the reins of the Territory next week after three weeks of intense training with each part of the business from logistics to R & D to customer service and the accounting system. AJ’s responsibility stretches from San Diego to Vancouver. He will be run demo days all long the coast including one in Seattle this weekend with some of our favorite dealers – Todd and Nadia Welter from Wavehounds.
