The World Surf League, the dominant competitive surfing organization in the world, held their final competition of the year, the Billabong Pipe Masters, in Oahu, Hawaii on Dec 8-20th . We had the privilege of showcasing the BioCharger NG to the competitors, thanks to the efforts of the organization’s Co Medical Director, Dr. Tim Brown. Earlier this fall, Dr. Brown took a great interest in the BioCharger NG after evaluating it for several weeks at his own Chiropractic practice in Southern CA. He felt strongly enough about the benefits, that he recommended that the BioCharger NG be added to the list of alternative therapies for this triple crown event. He wanted the device on site in Hawaii for surfers to use during the competition, and we had the prestigious honor of having the system located in the Volcom House, the hub for activites located at the Pipeline. 15-20 surfers and their coaches were using it daily, including some of the top surfers in the world, such as John John Florence and Alex and Koa Smith. The BioCharger NG generated a buzz at the Pipeline, and consensus among those who tried it is that it aids in recovery, better healing, more energy, and clarity. These professional surfers are incredible athletes with tremendous discipline, and they know their bodies and take good care of them, and they recognized the benefits that the BioCharger NG offers in maintaining a healthy balance. Many of the surfers requested that we leave the BioCharger NG on the North Shore throughout the holidays so that they could continue to use it. Currently, Owen Wright is among those using it regularly as he recovers from a serious concussion injury.
We appreciated everyone’s involvement and all of the positive feedback given at the Pipeline, and are especially grateful for the support of the hosts at the Volcom House, Tai Van Dyke & Kai Garcia. Tai is known for being one of Hawaii’s top Volcom Team Riders since the 90’s, and has more recently taken a leadership role in helping to manage the Hawaii Team, as well as some world famous Surf Properties, including the Volcom House at Pipeline. Kai “Borg” Garcia is a third degree black belt in martial arts, and has the role of gatekeeper at the Volcom house. Both of these worldclass surfing professionals have come to realize the benefits of the BioCharger NG, and are true believers in the advantages of subtle energy.
We endeavor to introduce the BioCharger NG to other extreme sports, and are currently involved with MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and college football as well as the NFL, but look to broaden our circle of exposure in the coming year.
