Turbo will be providing Jerry the financial backing to follow the IBA World Tour, along with the support to participate in some exciting new concept trips in the coming months.
Glenn Taylor, Head Shaper of Turbo Surf Designs, said the following in relation to Jerry joining the team: "We are stoked to have Jerry join the team, his riding ability along with his attitude both in and out of the water are impressive considering he is still only 20 years old. He has a huge future in the sport. We actually were in discussions with Jerry for the Turbo team prior to the Pipe event but he simply left us with no choice after his performance at the event. Jerry will start off riding the iconic Turbo IV board and I look forward working with him on board design over the coming years."
Jerry said the following in relation to signing with the Turbo team: "I am absolutely pumped on being a part of the Global Turbo team, I really like the image Turbo holds within bodyboarding and the boards are at the forefront of performance and durability. I am really looking forward to traveling and competing with the rest of the team in 2010, all the guys shred and I feel really privileged to be a part of Turbo's big plans for the future. I know it’s going to take a lot of work, but with the epic support I’m getting, I feel really confident that I can achieve good things this year!"
