Fortress Sponsors Carolina Wake Series

Fortress watches recently was named the official timing sponsor of the 2007 Carolina Wake Series.

"We see the Carolina Wake Series as the perfect grassroots wake event for Fortress to be involved with," said Fortress president and co-founder Andy Palmer. "We believe in supporting hard-pulling amateurs and the events that are designed for them. We intend over the coming months to build the Fortress Wake team to the same level that we've achieved in all our other sports."

Fortress Watches, located in Bonsall, Calif., is creating its own niche in the watch market by offering performance-driven timepieces built to withstand all excesses and inspired by the Fortress team - comprised of the world's youngest leading athletes in surf, snow, climbing, paddling, free-ride mountain biking and soon to be Wake.
