T&C Names New President

Craig Sugihara, Founder & Owner of T&C Surf Designs is proud to appoint his son Ryan Sugihara President.

This day has been a long-time in the making. Since returning home from College at Oregon State University in 2001 with a business degree, Ryan has worked in almost every area of the company – wholesale, surfboard factory, retail stores, buying, warehouse management, product development, and marketing. Each experience has contributed to Ryan’s well-rounded understanding of the business and positioned Ryan to excel in this leadership role. Since being named Vice President, Ryan has brought new energy and a more youthful perspective to a number of successful initiatives.

“I founded this company when I was 25 years old with endless passion and zero experience other than my shaping. I learned the business by doing and certainly made some mistakes. I am confident that Ryan shares my passion for surfing and has the experience and drive to guide the next generation of success for T&C.”

“T&C is built on a foundation of STOKE for surfing and a deep love for Hawaii! We have always endeavored to provide innovative products with the highest level of customer service. These fundamentals have seen us through 51 years. Ryan has embraced this approach and will build further on our success to date in the coming years.” Craig Sugihara

At 75, Craig remains stoked on surfing and looks forward to enjoying more time in the water. When the waves are less than ideal, you will find Craig on the golf links with old friends. More time with loved ones and friends and leisure travel with his family are at the top of Craig’s to do list. The additional time to relax and enjoy are well deserved!

“I’m stoked and excited that my parents have entrusted me to be the President of T&C Surf. They have both sacrificed so much to get the company to where it is today. Being a surfer who was born and raised in the surf industry and now working in it, I have a deeper appreciation for how special our company is. After 51 years, my parents have had so many special people be a part of this unreal journey. Together they have grown and guided a respected global company, rich with history and a future filled with new opportunities. My passion for this company, its people and my love of surfing drives me every day to work hard and do my very best. With that, I know that my parents will be proud of the legacy that I will continue to grow with our team at T&C Surf Designs Hawaii.” Ryan Sugihara, President

    My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – tcsurf.com – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like tcsurf.com will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    You can make it super-simple for them to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket… thanks to Talk With Web Visitor.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know immediately – so you can talk to that lead immediately… without delay… BEFORE they head for those hills.

    CLICK HERE https://jumboleadmagnet.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Now it’s also true that when reaching out to hot leads, you MUST act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s what makes our new SMS Text With Lead feature so powerful… you’ve got their phone number, so now you can start a text message (SMS) conversation with them… so even if they don’t take you up on your offer right away, you continue to text them new offers, new content, and new reasons to do business with you.

    This could change everything for you and your business.

    Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at tcsurf.com.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://talkwithwebtraffic.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Strong stuff.
