Mark Healey for Saxx Underwear

Canada-based underwear brand Saxx Underwear has signed pro surfer Mark Healey to its team to assist in daily product development and design for active men. The North Shore native is a big-wave surfer, award-winning spear-fisherman, free-diver, filmmaker, conservationist, Hollywood stuntman and yoga enthusiast. As Healey chases waves around the world this year, he will be featured in SAXX’s new brand campaign, “Free to Move.”

“I’m excited to be partnering with Saxx,” said Healey. “All of their innovative products complement every facet of what I do. The comfort and support I get from them is a real game changer for me. Whether I’m participating in one of my pursuits, training, or just day-to-day life, Saxx’s technology allows me to enjoy a level of comfort I never knew before. I look forward to working and expanding our relationship by creating some compelling and functional products that will become an essential part of every guy’s wardrobe.”

As Saxx maintains its growth, the brand continues to introduce new styles built for adventurers and everyday active men. Healey has been wearing the Kinetic Long Leg, a style that has also attracted many other professional athletes to the brand. In this past year, athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and other professional leagues have approached Saxx after trying the product.

“Mark fits seamlessly into our ideology at Saxx,” said Adam Greene, Saxx marketing director. “As a man who knows no boundaries and lives his life without limits, he is a great compliment to our new brand campaign, ‘Free to Move’.”
