"This campaign kicks off an exciting new chapter for Zhik. Our investment plan is centred around continuing to drive our digital capabilities and working closely with our extensive trade partners to expand into new territories and grow market share," explains Mat. "Plus, we want to continue investing in developing more sustainable technical and lifestyle products, whilst expanding our range for the broader sailing, boating and watersports markets."

Zhik's partnerships with Olympic medallists, America's Cup winners, Sail GP teams and around-the-world ocean race winners enable them to continually reach new audiences.

With an established network of trade partners and distributors stretching across 49 countries, Zhik's warehouses in Australia, the United Kingdom, Netherlands and America comprise a strong base for their global operations.
