Industry leading mineral glass eyewear brand, OTIS is extremely excited to announce the addition of Eric Geiselman as the brands newest US ambassador. Born and raised in the wave-rich town of New Smyrna Beach Florida, Eric is a highly esteemed Florida surf icon – and as well rounded as humans come both inside and outside of the ocean.
Eric’s progressive approach to surfing granted him a spot in WSL’s Inaugural 2019 Airborne Series, where he consistently pushed the limits in aerial surfing from the reefs of Bali to France’s premier beach breaks. Unsurprisingly, Eric’s talents are not limited to surfing. He’s a proficient fisherman, extremely skillful musician and dynamite on a skateboard. Being a man of many talents, Eric is always on the move and knows the partnership with OTIS fits his lifestyle perfectly:
“I’m super stoked to join the OTIS family. It makes me happy to be a part of such a rad brand. I really dig all the products in the OTIS line, especially the mineral glass lenses. I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
Launched in 2000 in Yallingup Western Australia, OTIS was founded on the principle of high quality, durable and environmentally sensitive eyewear, with the entire collection built with naturally sourced mineral glass lenses. On top of creating highly sustainable, reliable eyewear products OTIS has always valued partnerships with ambassadors who live and breathe the brand DNA.
OTIS Eyewear US Brand Manager Stephen Gerard commented:
“Eric brings tremendous value and versatility to the OTIS brand and we’re really excited to have him join the team. He’s a true representation of what we stand for. What we respect most about Eric is the passion and commitment he puts into everything he does – from being a standout surfer to a ripping musician, everything Eric does he does with his own unique flair. That unique flair can’t be replicated and that’s what makes Eric so rad to work with!”
OTIS and Eric will be working together to grow the brands global footprint, from creating content and stories about Eric’s lifestyle as a travelling surfer/musician to grassroots events and additional collaborations down the road. Aside from bringing value to the team as an ambassador, Eric also has a keen eye for style and has the ability to pull off all different types of frame designs:
“I’m loving all of the frames but my favorites right now are the 100 Club and Oska. OTIS in my opinion has always been a brand of quality and taste and I am stoked to represent a brand that is committed to making great product.”
Eric has spent the last few weeks putting several OTIS frames through the paces of his busy Florida lifestyle – from wrap-arounds during fishing sessions to edgy frames for gigs around town, Eric is showcasing the true versatility of his style and OTIS’ 2020 collection. Both parties are looking forward to a very exciting 2020 and beyond.
