Human Touch Partners with Icon Surfer for Social Media Contest
Best Idea on How to Improve the Surfing Experience will win a Human Touch® Massage Chair in the Corky Carroll Contest
Long Beach, CA – March 28, 2011 – Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® Recliners, and other wellness solutions, is coordinating a social media contest with one of their best fans – surfing icon Corky Carroll. Human Touch® will provide its state-of-the-art HT-3300 WholeBody® massage chair to one lucky winner who submits the best piece on “surfing etiquette.”
On Facebook, Corky Carroll shares his surfing adventures, wellness advice and fun-loving attitude with over 5,000 friends. He also has a column with the Orange County Register, where he talks about his Human Touch® massage chairs and how they help him loosen up before surfing and then recover after a long session in the waves. A baby boomer, nothing slows him down, and because of his attention to wellness and daily massage, he is able to enjoy his active lifestyle.
When asked by Human Touch® what he wanted his contest on Facebook to be based on, he said: “Surfing etiquette,” to touch on the subject of how the surfing experience can be better. “It is my strong feeling that surfing is meant to be a happy and extremely fun experience and that too many surfers are forgetting that in today’s overcrowded surf zones.”
