Prawno Ambassadors

Freedivers, Scuba Divers, Conservationists, Artists...  So Much Talent!

One of the coolest aspects of our brand is the fact that we get to mingle and meet so many interesting watermen and waterwomen around the world.  A clothing brand is only as inspiring as the people who wear the clothes, and we must admit that our ambassadors could make a g-string look cool!

So what does it take to be a Prawno ambassador?  The core requirement is to embody an ocean lifestyle and well being to the fullest.  Many of our representatives are part of a body that makes up some of the most talented freedivers in the world.  Ashley Chapman has set multiple world and national records, making her one of the most promising females in the sport. We have other US record setters in Kyle Gion and Shell Eisenberg.  Kyle is also a spearo who is attending Brown University, and Shell is a super talented artist (drawing).

This massive, 51 lb. striped bass that Kyle Gion speared covers his whole Prawno shirt!  But we know it's under there. That's a lot of meat to go around!

Mandy Sumner won gold in the World Championships last year, and Ren Chapman is pretty much one of the most sought after safety divers in the world.  Not to mention talented instructors like Bobby Kim (based in Costa Rica) and Forrest Simon (Florida).  We also have architect/freediver/underwater model Ashleigh Baird, who you might recognize from some of our shoots.  Oh yeah, and we have a freediver/doctor (Kerry Hollowell) and even the author of the new book, One Breath, in Adam Skolnick.  We have two Aussies in Jana McGeachy, who is a whale shark guide and underwater photographer at Ningaloo Reef, and Jacque Comery, who was the station manager at Macquarie Island all of last year (yeah, that's Antarctica), and who is pretty much a renaissance woman (dive instructor, technical diver, freediver, boat captain, environmental engineer, collector of marine debris, etc.).  And then there's the multi-dimensional Liz Parkinson: shark advocate, freediver, former collegiate swimmer, dive instructor and stunt woman.  The list of accolades for all of these individuals is quite extensive, so we'll do separate posts to talk about them.

As you can imagine, we feel pretty proud and honored to have such an array of talent representing our brand.  In creating our promotional materials, we use real folks doing inspiring things whose stories are worth telling.  So stay tuned for more photos and stories from our super squad, and follow them in their adventures and endeavors as they continue to travel, explore and smash records around the world!
