Collaborations such as this, with a brand like Hurley that shares a similar performance inspired DNA, is a natural and very exciting fit for the Freestyle brand. “Every watch we make is developed with performance in mind, so to partner with the leader in board short performance at the world’s premier high performance wave, is a dream come true,” says Will Cox, Freestyle GM of Sales and Marketing.
