The testing ground and sponsorship section,will have all people from different lifestyles trying out and wearing the Harryo product. It's a fact that 95 percent of people that wear surfwear clothing, dont go to the beach, so you will be seeing alot of people from mums with 5 kids, doctors, plumbers, school kids, to top sports people on this page.There are some people comming to this site that have being wearing the same shirt 3/4 times a week,for the past 4 years to see how well they wear and hold up to every day conditions. We will be putting a brand new shirt besides the shirt that has being worn over those years, to show you the difference, and what to exspect of your Harryo shirt. Some other large companys use the same shirt manufacturer as l do, eg. Anaconda, Rebel Sport,  MYER, plus many more well known companies. So every now and then come back and see who is on the testing ground or sponsored page, you may be suprised.   Keith Oliver.   Harryo

 CHRIS DYKES

CHRIS DYKES. is from Phillip Island Victoria Australia, he has being a long time freind and l didn't waste any time asking him to test out the harryo products. Chris started wearing some of the shirts 4 years ago and l told him to give them any test he can. Chris runs his own bussiness as a plummer, so he works in all kinds of weather, getting under houses, out in the sun and rain.Chris plays football in the winter and loves to surf any time he can throughout the year. Some of the pictures that you will see below are of chris in Bali recently surfing in a competion he entered while on holidays. Another is of  2 shirts, one is a brand new black harryo shirt, still with the tags and next to it is one that chris is still wearing today 4 years later and  625 washers  later, he told me that it's his favourate.Chris enjoys surfing whenever he can, combining a successful bussiness with sport that enjoys to do, the end result  is that he can give 100% to everything that he does and enjoy what he is doing.

 Coralie Burns

Hi my name is Coralie Burns and l live in Caringbah N.S.W.l love to surf whenever l can, with surf comps taking me from Western Australia to Queensland and back down the coast,to Sydney. things that l have tried to achieve in the Womens World Surf Series, both in long board and short board, is to gain a rating over a number of events throughout the year. This rating would get me into the same surf comps as Stephie Gillmore. l have a saying: that is to be a better surfer tomorrow than l was today, which makes me try even harder.To be sponsored by Harryo Surfwear is a great opportunity and have found the clothing comfortable and with the great logo on the back, everyone coments on how good it looks. l have allways had a passion for all sports weather it's heading to the ski mountains after a fresh dump of powdered snow to go snowboarding or heading to the beach on a hot summers day and start carving up the waves. l like to compete, it makes me try harder and l know that l will only get better. The challenge of surfing against men is important to me, as they don't show me any favours, which only makes me surf  better, which has paid off in many of my surf events that l have being in.Today surfing is getting harder as more and more young and up and comming surfers are making their way up, when l compete: l take no prisoners as l'm out there to win and to achieve the best that l can do. l pride myself  to:suceed through hard work and determination.

John Tasker in charge of marketing and his trip to Hawwaii,Sanfransico,Canada.

John likes to mix it up a bit so there might be the odd photo of him

.THE FORT BREAK

 Once the plane landed l wanted to get to to the water and see what everyone was up to,the weather was clear with a strong breeze so l knew there were going to be some waves.Straight to the Fort which is allways good and l wasn't let down,4 to 6 ft waves and the tide was still comming in,between there and Ocean Beach for the next week l was in heaven.

              Some people think that John should have being locked up there and then,but he still had places to go.

   Then it was onto Canada and a week boat trip from Vancouver through the Gulf Of Alaska up to Anchorage.

                                     alt

While traveling along the coast and before cutting across the Gulf Of Alaska John did stay at a place called Tofino he said it was a great place to surf all long the east coast from Pacific Rim National Park near Uclvelet all the way up to the Floresisland Provincal Park and was much like Australia's Byron Bay in Queensland, good waves and full of backpackers.As you can see by the picture of John he will go to any length's to show himself and a Harryo shirt.At one stage during the trip and speed boat came beside the ship with a tow surfer named Andrew Mc Kenzie and once up to speed rode the ships wake for several kms, the picture below shows Andrew before the stunt because he said that he nearly froze to death while behind the boats wake,so he e/mailed a picture before he started.Thanks Andrew your crazy.

                                 John's last stop on his way home was Hawaii the birth place of surfing

  John was so glade to be heading back to some nice warm weather, after being in Canada for the last 2 weeks with a list of places that had to be seen there was nothing that was going to stop John. A couple of days on Oahu and Waikiki Beach just to recharge the battery's is what he told me,but going by the pictures he took from the Hilton Hotel looking over Waikiki Beach and ground level he was making the most of it.

     Where else in the world could you wake up at 6am take 30 steps from your hotel room and have a great surf and still be back in time for breakfast and still keep the wife happy. 

 The North Shore was the next place on the list and Pipeline was at it's best,with barrel after barrel testing anyone that was willing to take on the challenge and with Sunset to the right it was a matter of which way do you look for the best surfing and some of the best wipeouts in the world, as you can see by the pictures that were taken.
