"We are extremely excited to welcome ultra endurance athlete Tom Jones to the Laird StandUp Team. Tom has accomplished a multitude of lifetime achievements in sports, from the World Muay Tai Championships to his endurance SUP paddles from Key West to New York just to name a few. He is unstoppable when he puts his mind to it," said Byron Seegers, Brand Manager of LAIRD StandUp. As proof of that unstoppable spirit, Tom is currently training to represent LAIRD StandUp and bring awareness to his "Resup" campaign in his goal to break another distance record by paddling from San Francisco, Calif. to Oahu, Hawaii in 2015.

In addition to his extreme athleticism, Tom Jones has put countless hours in with a number of philanthropic organizations championing the well being of today's youth and paving the way for their future through environmental initiatives designed to improve their communities and livelihoods through eco-responsible commerce.

"Tom's competitive achievements, result-oriented mindset, and philanthropic accomplishments are all congruous with the LAIRD brand, making Tom Jones both a valued team representative and a senior ambassador," said Mark Paaluhi, Marketing/Team Manager of LAIRD StandUP.
