BOULDER, COLORADO (For Immediate Release) - Gibbon Slacklines, manufacturers of slackline kits distributed exclusively by Canaima Outdoors in North America, announces the support of four new sales agencies covering twenty states in the US as well as British Columbia, the Yukon and Ontario, Canada.

Outdoor Marketing Alliance (OMA), the largest of four agencies to join Gibbon, has six reps throughout the Southeast, Texas and Oklahoma. The OMA team boasts ninety-six combined years of experience representing manufacturers in the outdoor market.

Gibbon has retained Nu School Enterprises in Southern California, Southern Nevada and Arizona. Led by Zachariah Rohowits with eighteen years in the outdoor space, based in San Diego, California. Nu School also represents Veloz Trucks and Insane Asylum Skateboards.

“We are thrilled with the positive response from the outdoor industry. Teaming with this exceptional group of rep agencies with shared passion for the outdoors furthers our goal to grow the popularity of slackling,” said Ricardo Bottome, president of Canaima Outdoors. “There is no shying away from Gibbon and its addictive nature even in the current economic times.”
