21 March 2019 – Kuta, Bali: Meerkat is excited to announce their innovative partnership with the Asian Surf Cooperative, offering their influential and productive services to ASC’s community of surfing athletes who will benefit by developing their Instagram accounts into powerful marketing tools that will attract revenue producing sponsorships and endorsement deals thereby furthering their careers as professional athletes.
Meerkat can professionally assist ASC’s surfing athletes in growing their Instagram presence through increasing engagement and extending the reach of their IG profiles via 24/7 hands on assistance and powerful detailed reports, building their own personal brands and thereby showcasing their value and ultimately winning endorsement deals and sponsorships.
The Asian Surf Cooperative, formerly the Asian Surfing Championships, has been providing Asian surfers with a forum from which to exposure their talents by way of the Asian Surfing Championship Tour and before it the Indonesian Surfing Championship Tour (formed in Bali in 2004).
With a surfing circuit that grew from a few events in Bali to events all over Indonesia from Rote Island in the east to Simeulue Island in the west, then on to Thailand, Malaysia, Maldives, India, Taiwan, and the Philippines, Asian surfers were given the chance to gain experience and media attention not to mention sponsors and prize money in their quest to make a career out of their passion.
But as the surfing brands have increasingly reduced budgets for sponsoring surfers, it is the surfers themselves that must now take charge of building their own brand images in order to attract the sponsorships and endorsement deals to generate the revenue needed to live, travel, and compete.
And that’s where Meerkat comes in. “Instagram has become the most popular form of Social Media and communication for both professional surfers and the global surfing community in general, with the more popular surf related accounts and surfer accounts gaining huge numbers of followers and being in a position of real influence to the sport and community,” says Harry Radcliffe of Meerkat.
“Even top ranked surfers on the WSL tour are using their Instagram profile and follower numbers as the main bargaining tool when negotiating their new contracts, so whether negotiating a deal with a global brand or a local burger joint, Meerkat has the expertise and the means to help surfers maximize their value and present themselves it in a professional and meaningful manner. That’s why we are extremely excited to be able to partner up with the ASC, an organization with such a wide reach in the Asia region surfing community, to offer our services to their surfing athletes ,” explained Radcliffe.
Meerkat is currently curating Instagram accounts with a large base of satisfied clients from around the globe from world renowned restaurants https://www.instagram.com/londonsteakhouseco/, public figures https://www.instagram.com/annihaase/

“Social media is the key for marketing in this millennial era,” says the ASC’s Tipi Jabrik. “We believe that working with Meerkat assures that you are directly targeting the right audience. The ASC is confident that this will provide huge benefits to all our partners, from the surfers to the surf industry and beyond. We’re excited to be in a position to partner with Meerkat and provide our community of Asian surfers with a way to raise themselves to higher level as professionals.”
