Stand Up Paddle Boarder and Paddle Surfer, Brit Oliphant, Joins Hydro Flask Ambassador Team
Oliphant relies on Hydro Flask to stay hydrated in the hot Hawaiian sun
Bend, Oregon – Hydro Flask, the award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel flasks, recently launched a new Ambassador Program, featuring a diverse, carefully chosen set of representatives that embodies the spirit of the brand. This month, Hydro Flask is proud to spotlight its stand up paddle boarding and paddle surfing Ambassador: Brit Oliphant.
A native of Bend, Ore., Oliphant recently graduated from high school and relocated to Paia, Hawaii, where she could pursue her love of water sports. A natural athlete, Brit has competed in nearly every sport throughout her youth, although she now focuses on stand up paddle boarding (SUP) and paddle surfing. Oliphant recently placed 1st in the 12th Annual Surftech Jay Race, a women’s SUP competition. She also placed 2nd in the 2013 Surftech Shootout and 5th in the H20 Overdrive Summer Series. When not competing, Oliphant shares her love of SUP by teaching the sport to other enthusiasts.
“Between surf contests and stand up paddles races, it’s important for me to stay hydrated on the go,” said Brit Oliphant. “I use my Hydro Flask for when early morning surf checks become all day beach days. I’m always amazed that it keeps my water cold after sitting in the sun for hours.”
Brit’s “Top 5 Accessories for Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Paddle Surfing:”
- “My pink Hydro Flask to keep my water cold in the hot Hawaiian sun”
- “BIKINIS! Lots of them!”
- “My Kialoa paddle”
- “The ocean”
- “Support from family and friends”

“It’s exciting to see our Ambassadors relying on their Hydro Flask to stay hydrated during their respective sports,” said Scott Allan, CEO of Hydro Flask. “From hot yoga to ultra running to stand up paddle boarding, Hydro Flask is a ‘go to’ accessory for many endurance athletes.”
About the Ambassador Program
