The action sports industry has become over saturated with beverage products containing way to much sugar, additives and artificial flavors. About 4 years ago I left my conventional energy drink contract early because I no longer saw myself aligned with the products. I wanted to promote and fuel my body with drinks and foods that has clean ingredients that I can pronounce the names of & that has lots of nutritional benefits. I searched for an alternative to the traditional "energy drinks" & found a company who are seeking to provide something different. Last year I got onboard with Purps, a organic beverage company founded by Kelly Slater, Pat Tenore and Dr Purps himself - all amazing leaders in the action sports community and beyond. They are not only providing an alternative to energy drinks, but also organic sports drinks and superfood travel packs to take on the road. I like to take the Purps Vita with me on the mountain, as it is small and easy to bring and gives me that "superboost" I am looking for when I'm training in the park. The company and it's team has a purpose to help uplift others, emphasizing on how they especially can inspire the youth. Through their program #purpsitforward they are using their position to help educate and inspire youth to adapt a healthier lifestyle. Their courageous leadership & dedication to giving back to the community inspires me to do the same. I am so proud to be a part of this family and to share their message on my platforms.
