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.
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!

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!
