Brass Media Follow up Blog

We recently got to catch up with Mary Osborne, pro surfer, former Surf Girls star and May 2006 cover story. Mary says things are going great, this past week she won a Pro Longboard Association event in Ventura, California. She had one thing to say about the contest–”Wahooo!!!”

Surfing competitively isn’t the only thing Mary’s been up to; she filled us in on two other projects she’s immersed herself in. First off, Mary will be hosting an All Girls Surf Camp in August in association with Ventura Makos Surf Camp.

Then in October, Mary is slated to be a featured surfer aboard The Surf Cruise Cup, a cruise that’s all about surfing. Joining her will be three-time longboard champion Colin McPhillips, and Robert “Wingnut” Weaver–who starred in two Endless Summer movies, as well as the amazing 2003 surf documentary Step Into Liquid.

“[The] Surf Cruise Cup is going to be a blast. I recommend all families, surfers and music lovers join in,” Mary says.

The boat will set sail on a week-long trip to prime surf spots in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. Check out this poster (PDF).
