Alaska Airlines

Flying to flow? Save some dough.

Stoked to announce that the FLOW Tour will be taking off with a airlines partner this season!

Alaska Airlines has recently been ranked the number one Airline and now Alaska Airlines is also a proud sponsor of the 2018 US FlowRider® FLOW Tour!

A very recent CNN Travel article, referencing the best airlines, according to The Points Guy (TBG), Alaska Airlines topped the list for 2018.

Alaska Airlines, which has merged with a new partner, Virgin America, edged out the runner-up, Southwest and also out ranked Delta (#3) to win the top spot in The Points Guy’s ratings.

TBG goes on to say “Alaska scored consistently well across a number of key criteria, ranking in the top three for airfare, on-time arrivals, customer satisfaction, baggage and a best-in-the-industry frequent-flier program,”

We say, they have stepped up to the plate to support our passion for the sport of flowboarding and we look forward to supporting them in return.

As part of our sponsorship, along with getting our community to book with Alaska Air, we are aiming to get the FlowRider FLOW Tour members and our flowboarders community to sign up for the Mileage Plan and take advantage of flight discounts for this year’s US FLOW Tour events. Did we already mention the have the “best – in – the -industry frequent flier milage program? Yes, we did, but’s worth stating again!

Mileage Plan membership allows frequent flyers to earn miles every time you fly with Alaska or any of their airline partners. You can redeem those miles for award travel, earn elite status, and enjoy all the perks of being a loyal Alaska Airlines guest.

Additionally, Alaska Airlines will be providing discounts and coupon codes for all 2018 FLOW Tour members and competitors traveling for events listed domestically.

Be sure to stay social and know your flow via the Flowboarders social media platforms and website event pages because that is where you will find flight discount codes and more information to save some dough when you flow.

Codes will be set up around the event dates and nearest airport locations. Allowing riders to book trips up a two week window around the event dates.

To think, this all started from a flowboarders.com community member and fellow employee of Alaska Airlines (Jasper Ha) who is an absolute fanatic about flowboarding reaching out with a simple e-mail to his co-workers and chain of command. Needless to say, thank you Jasper & and Alaska Airlines.

“Shoot, assuming all goes well, discounts and perks will increase as our relationship grows!” states, Doug Clark, Alaska Airlines Sales & Community Marketing Manager.

Sign up, fly Alaska Airlines and help us all grow the flow!

FlowRiderShop.com Ambassador Team Openings

The FlowRiderShop.com has ambassador openings and is now accepting FR Team applications!

I will let you know right now, and you can ask any of the current team members this as well (even the G.O.A.T Sean Silveira), that being an ambassador requires more work than you may think. FR Team riders are expected to represent the attraction, promote the sport and showcase the lifestyle in a positive manner – on and off the wave.

Check out some of our current Pro team members and ambassadors on the FlowRiderShop.com Team Riders Tab.

Before FlowRider Team announcements are made for this year’s FLOW Tour and we dish out agreements, there are a few FlowRiderShop Ambassador Openings to fill!

For those of you that stay super active with us on social media, thanks for reaching out to us. We are excited with the response level and your interest in becoming part of this elite, growing team is motivating!

I (Adam) am a dedicated and supportive fan of the community and continue to do all the little things for select individuals/athletes whose positivity and effort on and off the wave is obvious. The success of this sport starts with our flowboarders community in the field. Enter, the FR Team programs that are designed to unite the flowboarding community and to keep headquarters in the loop of what’s going on with your home wave or nearest FlowRider attractions.

As a former sponsored athlete, venue manager, brand creator, FLOW Tour competitor and current FLOW Events coordinator, I am genuinely aware of the positives that are related to sponsorship and cross promotions (i.e. free swag! I get it – it’s the best). I also know that we are simultaneously focused on the growth of our sport and increasing ridership even though the very sport you are promoting can be tough on your wallet.

Our main goal with the sponsorship program and behind FlowRiderShop.com is to offer an outlet for flowboarders everywhere to have access to the flow gear they need. We are constantly making efforts to expand our product offerings and making it a one stop shop featuring all brands that support the sport, attraction and lifestyle.

Team riders will be expected to ride and promote the boards, merchandise and brands offered on FlowRiderShop.com. The array of brands was extensively expanding in 2017 because we want our team riders use their preferred equipment – the equipment that helps them progress their riding. Remember, discounts and free swag are awesome, but is not the focal point of this partnership. The focus is to grow the flow together.

With all that said, it’s time to rally the troops and come together. Let us always keep in mind that this is a joint effort, a two-street and that it takes two to tango, so to speak. The more you respectfully represent flowboarders as a whole at various waves across the world, stay social while doing it and just keep shredding, the more we can improve our shop offerings, sponsorship programs and swag offerings! We will support you right back!

As we gear up for the 2018 FLOW Tour season, we are looking for flowboarders who…

 Have plans to compete/travel on the FLOW Tour
 Have registered to be FLOW Tour Member
 Are active on and off the wave at their local FlowRider venues
 Are willing to offer a helping hand at events or local venues
 Prefer riding the products currently offered on FlowRiderShop.com
 Are not currently in a binding relationship/sponsorship with conflicting companies
 Are active on social media with @flowboarders, @flowrider_inc and @flowridershop
 Have a Flowboarders.com profile

Do you meet all or most of the requirements above? If so, we have several levels of team commitments and opportunities.

FlowRider Shop Ambassador This group is for riders who are passionate and positive about the sport at all levels and stay connected to the community. Riders will be offered discounts.
FR Team Ambassador – This level is for qualified/selected riders who have put in work on and off the wave and have continuously shown support and improvement over the years
FR PRO Team This level is reserved for World Champions, Regional Tour Champions and establish Professional Competitive riders.

Our current openings are for the FlowRider Shop Ambassador and offer the opportunity to move up to more committed levels of sponsorship.

The FlowRider Shop Ambassador squad will receive discounts on boards and merchandise from FlowRiderShop.com, custom board opportunities, various shout outs on social media and cross promotions.

FlowRider Shop Ambassadors will also be contacted first in regards to wave trainings, demonstrations, shows and grand openings in their region.

There are a lot of opportunities and we can take it as far as riders want depending on their commitments, efforts and results. There is no pressure, just team work.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Cheers,
Adam
