Premier Water Brand Joins Top Athletes Surfing for Prestigious Title.

Kea'au, HI, November 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Hawaiian Springs LLC, Hawaii’s signature natural water brand recognized for bottling some of the purest and most sustainable waters in the world, today announced it will be the Official Water of the 28th Annual Triple Crown of Surfing. The worlds’ top surfers are gathering on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, today in preparation for the $900,000 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing that begins in November and continues through December.

“Hawaiian Springs is proud to continue our support of the Triple Crown,” said Rick Hadley, chairman and CEO of Hawaiian Springs. “We are honored to be part of an event that showcases the talents of some of the best surfers from around the world.”

Hawaiian Springs will provide close to 12,000 servings of its 330mL size to the contest for the events: Reef Hawaiian Pro, Cholo's Women's Pro, O'Neill World Cup of Surfing, Gidget Pro, Billabong Pipe Masters, and Vans Women's Duel for the Jewel.

Hawaiian Springs water is bottled at its source on the Big Island of Hawaii after being naturally filtered through 13,000 feet of lava. Hawaiian Springs captures the Arctic rains that fall over Mauna Loa and bottles it within 30 to 45 days—making it one of the freshest artesian waters available. With an alkaline pH level of 7.7—among the highest in the natural water category—it also is naturally enhanced with electrolytes. Already preferred by Hawaiian consumers, the premium natural artesian water from America’s favorite tropical destination is an ideal choice for individuals seeking a natural, refreshing moment of paradise in their active day-to-day life.
