Salt Life Announced as Sponsor for Florida Skin Diver's Association's Super-Series Spearfishing League

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 26, 2016) – Outdoor lifestyle brand Salt Life is sponsoring the Super-Series Spearfishing League, announced Salt Life President Jeff Stillwell. Presented by the Florida Skin Diver’s Association (FSDA), the Salt Life Super-Series combines multiple established tournaments throughout Florida, giving scuba divers, free divers and teams a chance to compete for prizes, sponsorships and national recognition in the world of spearfishing. “For everyone from world-class athletes to novice ocean enthusiasts, Salt Life embodies a spirit of adventure and passion for the outdoors. We are proud to sponsor the Super-Series Spearfishing League and encourage people to live the ‘Salt Life’ through the exciting sport of spearfishing,’ Salt Life president Jeff Stillwell said.

"Spearfishing is an incredibly extreme-sport with top athletes that deserved to be recognized like NASCAR or Bassmaster sportsmen" says Courtland Hunt, FSDA Super-Series Chairman.

Proceeds from Super-Series tournaments benefit over a dozen different charities. The prize for "Top Team" is a full boat-wrap graphic presented by Sign-Zoo Graphics, and there are individual cash prizes up to $15,000.
