SANTA ROSA, Calif - Buff, Inc., known for stylish, versatile and multifunctional headwear popular among fishermen, is providing Team Ocean Kayak with 150 custom Team Ocean Kayak UV Buff® for the 2010 tournament season. The kayak fishing team will be donning their Buff® headwear at the second tournament of the season on March 21 at the Xtreme Redfish Series Tournament in Corpus Christi, TX.

Team Ocean Kayak is a dominant force in competitive kayak fishing, but the team is proving itself to be a fierce competitor in powerboat tournaments as well. Team Ocean Kayak placed second in the February 6 Galveston Trophy Trout/Redfish Series in Galveston, TX, which was the team's first powerboat pro trout tourney, and they were the only kayakers competing.

Since 2005, the team has earned the title “Team of the Year” at some of the most prestigious fishing tournaments, including the 2005 Shimano Extreme Edge Fishing National and the 2009 Texas Kayak Series.

“Buff® is pleased to be aligned with such a strong competitor in kayak fishing,” says Shirley Choi Brunetti, general manager and vice president, United States. “Buff, Inc. is proud of Team Ocean Kayak's continued successes and achievements, and we are pleased that they are so committed to the Buff® brand.”

“Combined, our team spends thousands of hours on the water each year,” explains Captain Fil Spencer of Team Ocean Kayak. “Whether we are using a Buff® to protect us from the cold or sun, it helps us get more time on the water every day. In the summer, wearing a UV Buff® makes a huge difference with sun exposure to sensitive areas like your face, ears and neck. In the winter, it keeps your face and neck warm from the cold winds. In my opinion, Buff® multifunctional headwear is a necessity for anyone looking to spend more or longer days outdoors,” he adds.

The UV Buff® protects against 95-percent of UV rays. With its Coolmax® Extreme fabric, sweat evaporates quickly and allows moisture to pass through the fabric. As a result, any outdoor activity can be achieved with ease and comfort, and the user will be left feeling dry and cool during mid-day and warm while out in the early morning. The UV Buff® also incorporates Polygiene which protects against odor and keeps you fresh.

Buff, Inc. continues to produce the highest quality multifunctional headwear on the market. The company has just released its new premium-quality line of Pro-Series Gloves designed specifically for fishermen. The new Angler Gloves and Fighting Work Gloves are crafted to enhance dexterity, grip and offer the highest degree of UV protection (UPF 50+), providing anglers with a performance advantage literally in the palm of their hands.
