A Fabulous Tan Joins with Two Elite Junior Surfers Making Big Waves in Florida
By: A Fabulous Tan
A Fabulous Tan, a Central Florida distributor of Havana Sun tanning oils and sunscreens, is delighted to announce its official sponsorship of two rising young surfer stars, 9-year-old Billy Dixon and 8-year-old Jaden "BigCat" Dixon. Born and raised in Melbourne, Florida, the Dixon brothers have been attracting increasing attention on the surf scene for their remarkable command of the waves.
As Jacob Wilkerson, COO of A Fabulous Tan, explains, "The moment we saw them on the water, we knew they were a perfect match for the Havana Sun family. Their impressive surf skills and excellent manners, as well as their devotion to the sport and natural competitiveness, set them apart from other young surfers.
"We're looking to partner with the most inspired and inspiring young athletes in the world, so we handpick the athletes we work with, from surfers to paddleboarders to swimmers. We're confident Billy and BigCat have the grit and talent needed to go far in their sport."
Billy Dixon learned to surf at the Todd Holland School of Surf in 2015. Having since won multiple competitions, including Best Male Surfer at the 2016 Waterman's Challenge and placing 1st in the Gnarly Charley Surf Series Summer Championships, he is catching the eye—and the sponsorship dollars—of all the big names, including Maui and Sons, Hang Ten Kids, SharkBanz and the Todd Holland Surf Team. He currently rides a custom-shaped Todd Holland Shapes Peli surfboard.
Not to be outdone by his older brother, BigCat Dixon has made his own mark on the surfing world, stacking up sponsorships from Long Doggers Surf Team Palm Bay and the Todd Holland Surf Team. He most recently placed 2nd in Gnarly Charley Surf Series Summer Championships. BigCat also rides a custom-shaped Todd Holland Shapes Peli surfboard.
"We're committed to supporting the Dixon brothers in whatever they need," says Wilkerson, "whether that means helping promote their events or supporting them while they develop their surfing expertise. We look forward to sharing this amazing adventure with them and seeing what they can accomplish as they grow, on and off the water."
If you want to watch these phenomenal athletes in action, both are scheduled to compete in the Gnarly Charley Winter Surf Series. That schedule, as well as a list of future events, is located online at http://www.gnarlycharleysurfseries.com. The Gnarly Charley surf competitions are focused on improving the confidence, self-esteem and athletic ability of young surfers to prepare them for adult competition.
