Proper Suncare, is proper Skincare, and to take proper care of your skin, you have to take the enitre process seriously. When we Started Vertra Elemental Resistance in 2004, we vowed to do just that, to make a serious push and bring skincare awareness to the forefront of our market because until now, it has basically been a category that has been mostly taken for granted. Our Athletes that participate in the paddlesports industry are amongst the most prolific candidates to suffer from sunburn, skin damage, photo-aging and unfortunately in many cases, skin cancer. SIMPLY PUT, quality suncare products for people like us are not an accessory, but a necessity!

Vertra’s  Travis Grant Leads Outrigger Australia to a National Title

Gold Coast, Australia (February 7th, 2011) Vertra Sunscreen’s Travis Grant confirmed his reputation of  being one of the most dominant ocean paddlers in Australia by winning the Australian National Outrigger Title this past weekend. Hailing from the Gold Coast, Grant was the outright winner in the AOCRA National Title 500m OC1 sprints. Claiming the gold medal at Coomera Lake, Grant smashed the final heat by 4 seconds over club mate Leo Young.

“The sprint championships has always been one race that eluded me so it is certainly good to finally add the Australian Gold medal to the collection,” Grant explained after the event. After his win in the OC1, Grants then steered the Outrigger Australian six-man canoe to a National Championship.

Grant in the past 6 months has racked up a long list of elite accomplishments. It does not seem to matter which ocean craft he paddles, Grant manages to finish on top. Earlier this year Grant finished 2nd overall in the Battle of the Paddle elite standup race in Honolulu, Hawaii. “I love the ocean and I love to compete,” Grant commented “I am fortunate enough to get to travel and race around the world.” In the coming months Travis will head back to Hawaii for the OC1 World Championships.
