My name is Nelson Gonzalez and skimboarding and surfing is my passion. Previously I had worked at Qicksilver shop on Broadway in Manhattan. Now i am a East Coast Sales Representative for Eelsnot, One of the best speed wax company for high performance board sports out there. I felt my passion was portrayed in my work and sales. I was able to push sales on the Channel Island surfboards as well as pitching my ideas of one day bringing skimboards to the New York area.
To further my career I have started a surfing/skimboarding t-shirt company as well as starting up a skim camp in the local Brooklyn area to raise awareness about the skimboarding sensation. I am confident that I will excel If given this opportunity to join your company.
