As you know, our ethos at Norte is to 'Leave It Better', and in delivering that commitment, our focus is on people, places and planet. We achieve this through partnerships with people that share our values and our sense of adventure!
Empowering and supporting young people to achieve their goals is an important part of that commitment, enter our new Sponsorship program for young athletes and sports stars of the future.
Today, we introduce you to Norte Sponsored legend Zayne Jonsson, a surfing, scooting, skateboarding, cricket, rugby playing, 10 year old rising super star from Ballina, NSW.
Zayne has an impressive list of achievements for a 10 year old that shows how his hard work and dedication mixed with natural ability has seen him kicking goals across a raft of sports.
We're proud to support Zayne on his journey and love seeing him out enjoying the elements, training and shredding, putting his Norte gear to the ultimate test.
Zayne is highly active, super social and recognised by his peers for his sportsmanship, always at the ready to encourage his team mates, traits that we at Norte hold in high regard.
All that training and competition means Zayne stays fueled up on his favourite breaky of 3 weetbix, a classic meat pie and sauce for lunch and tacos for tea.
Zayne's absolute favourite item from his Norte wear collection is his trusty blue Amigo Rashie which has seen more than a few waves now! A close second is seriously warm and comfy Norte Jacket, best for throwing on to warm up after hours in the surf. With hobbies like RC Dirt Car racing, Skateboarding, Scooting, Golf and BMX bike riding, his Norte gear gets a decent workout!
Keep up the great work Zayne, we love having you on Team Norte and love watching your adventures and sporting successes, but mostly, we love hearing what a rad little guy you are.
