IRVINE, Calif. & COOLANGATTA, Australia(BUSINESS WIRE)March 20, 2006Boost Mobile®, a lifestylebased telecommunications brand that develops and distributes wireless communications products for the youth market, and the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), the world governing body for the sport of surfing, today announced a threeyear global exclusive strategic partnership.

Boost Mobile will also be utilizing a number of its marketing assets, advertising and customer communications to promote the ASP and the WCT events, and in particular the event webcasts.

 

"The Boost Mobile Pro has been a part of the Fosters ASP Mens World Tour for over four years, and Boost has supported surfing and sponsored surfers since the brand inception," said Mark Fewell, senior director of business development for Boost Mobile. "This deal takes our strategic relationship to the next level, and we will be working closely with the ASP to deliver the unique and exciting content from surfings top tour to mobile devices around the world, with the aim of delivering benefits to ASP and the event licensees, and for the enjoyment of consumers."

"This deal extends our longstanding relationship with Boost Mobile as an event licensee, and will enable the ASP to commercialize its assets in the wireless space for the benefit of ASP and its top tour event owners," said Brodie Carr, chief executive officer, ASP.

"The success of putting the worlds best surfers on the worlds best waves is paying off for the ASP and we have seen the interest in the ASP and Fosters Mens World Tour grow year on year," said Carr. "Partnering with Boost in this lucrative multiyear deal allows ASP to leverage off Boost and push the exposure of surfing to the youth demographic worldwide. The ASP has enjoyed the partnering in the Boost Mobile Pro at Trestles and is looking forward to stepping up the relationship another level."

The Boost Mobile Pro, now in its fifth year, is the only WCT event on the U.S. mainland, and will be held at Lower Trestles, Calif. in September 2006. The winner of the event in 2005 was the 2005 World Champion Kelly Slater.
