SMASH Presents The Surfers Studio: An Evening with Mark Kelly, Global Surf Industries Managing Director
The guys over at SMASH have been keeping really busy and putting on some excellent events almost every weekend. Tonight they’ve got another edition of The Surfers Studio with an evening with Global Surf Industries Managing Director Mark Kelly.Â Mark has helped revolutionize how surfboards are built and sold. After decades of a cottage industry-style operations, Mark Kelly saw a different way of supplying surfboards to the international surfing market in 2002.Â Kelâ€™s passion for surfing led him to create Global Surf Industries, which is now the worldâ€™s largest distributor of surfboards. Today, GSI has a portfolio of 13 brands, each catering to a particular type of surfer with a specific level of surfing ability and sells boards in 57 countries around the world. Based in Manly on the Northern Beaches of Sydney in Australia, Kel spends 15 â€“ 25 weeks a year traveling the world surfing and doing business.
