West is proud to announce the addition of recent WCT qualifier Luke ‘Munners’ Munro to its surf team. Luke joins Northwest Oz charger Kirby Brown and WQS upstart Tom Innes in representing West wetsuits.
Luke’s success started early when he won the World Junior’s title in 2000. After surfing three years on the WQS including numerous final placings and a win at the 2006 Sri Lankan Airlines Maldives Pro, Luke continues his success by bringing his talent to the prestigious World Championship Tour.
Luke was born and raised in Currumbin, QLD Australia where he still resides. As a natural (regular) footer growing up surfing Currubin Alley, Luke has developed one of the most polished and powerful styles around. His use of speed and fluid maneuvers will make him a force to be reckoned with on tour.
“I’ve always been a fan of Luke’s surfing and combined with his personality he will be a great representation for West,” said Paul Manners, West’s International Marketing Manager. Luke is starting off 2007 with a fresh outlook on his surfing career and new supportive sponsors.
Today West is still the grassroots surfing company it was founded as, making the best wetsuit for surfing. West’s wetsuits reflect the culmination of two decades in wetsuit manufacture and great surfing. Get out there!
