Auburn, Alabama—December 6th, 2010 —Shred Ready has been building its presence in the water sports industry and steadily amassing its army of wake athletes for the past two years . Their helmets are sick and riders have taken notice. Cable park sponsorships, new team riders, and great line of wake friendly lids; SR has decided it’s time to take wake operations to the next level by adding to their already killer team of grassroots core riders.
Nate Perry has easily established himself as one of the top rail riders in the world. Behind the jet ski or on the System 2.0 at the Projects; taking laps at OWC or McCormick’s; or hitting winch gaps Nate continues to put himself in a class all his own and Shred Ready is proud to welcome him to the team. “I’m stoked to be a part of Shred Ready. As a rail rider I take protecting my head seriously and gnarly crashes are inevitable when pushing the limits. Shred Ready helmets offers me amazing protection with killer style and comfort. The best part is their helmets are so light you can barely tell you’re wearing one” said Perry.
Tom Sherburne, Ph. D, SR President and founder said “ I am psyched to have Nate join our growing team. Shred Ready has always tested the boundaries in head protection and style. Nate’s progressive riding is a great match for Shred Ready. Simply put, Nate needs good helmets and we make them.” Sherburne continued, “ I am always amazed by what today’s wakeboarders are doing. Winching, cables, two tower systems and now riding in whitewater are revolutionizing the sport. I show all my kayak reps and customers what is going on in wake and they are amazed and feel the stoke too. With this new frontier, helmets are a necessary piece of gear for every wake boarder. Over the past two years, I have been traveling around the country supporting wake events and meeting with the industry. I have to admit I love it! Shred Ready is proud to be a part of it all.”
