Actress and Philanthropist Tanna Frederick joins Snikwah as Newest Brand Ambassador
Snikwah UPF 50+ performance apparel headquartered in Naples, Fla. has inked a deal with Hollywood stage and screen actress Tanna Frederick, who will be representing the company as a brand ambassador.
Frederick, who is also an avid surfer, outdoor enthusiast and philanthropist, was a celebrity surfer for Snikwah at 2015’s Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro, the world’s largest female surfing competition. Snikwah was the event’s official shirt and apparel provider. A portion of proceeds from Snikwah shirt sales were donated to Project Save Our Surf, a charity founded by Frederick which is dedicated to the conservation of ocean and marine ecosystems.
“Tanna was a perfect choice for a brand ambassador. She is a talented, driven and free-spirited young woman. Her athleticism as a runner, a second-degree Tae Kwon Do black belt and as a passionate surfer exemplifies the Snikwah lifestyle making her ideal to represent our brand,” Snikwah CEO Roy Smith said.
As an ambassador, Frederick will serve as a company spokeswoman promoting Snikwah UPF 50+ performance apparel and the conservation of the oceans and waterway ways we all love and share.
The Snikwah Original shirt helps to regulate body temperature with Drirelease®, a fabric with wicking ability that keeps you cooler in hotter temperatures and warmer in cooler temperatures.
“The Original features a patented, convertible neck and allows the wearer to control the level of protection exactly where they need it. It can be worn down, with the neck extended to cover your mouth or as a full buff or hood. The company also features a line of rashguards called Hydros that regulate the wearer’s body temperature whether they are in tropical surf or in colder waters,” Smith said.
“I am so excited to be a part of this company. Snikwah has the BEST clothing not just for surfers but for all outdoor activists. The wicking of the fabric in their Originals and rashguards helps to keep you comfortable whether you are running a half marathon through the redwoods or surfing in the ocean. The style, fit, and design are beyond compare,” Frederick said.
“It is a pleasure to represent a brand that gives back to kids. Snikwah’s involvement with Project Save Our Surf will help send thousands of kids who can’t afford it to camp. They are a company with heart and soul,” Frederick said.
In addition to Frederick’s participation as a Snikwah ambassador, you can see her this fall in Henry Jaglom’s romantic mystery “Ovation” starring opposite James Denton. She is also producing and starring in the virtual reality series “Defrost” with Randal Kleiser directing; and “South of Hope Street” directed by Jane Spencer. Frederick can also be seen starring as a single mother who returns to Iowa (Frederick’s hometown) to deal with her past in “Garner, Iowa” later this year.
Frederick is a mainstay of the Los Angeles Theatre community. In 2013, she won the LA Stage and Eddon awards for Best Actress for N. Richard Nash’s “The Rainmaker’ at the Edgemar Theatre. She received Outstanding Performance in “Train to Zakopane” from the Last Straw Awards.
Frederick’s performance in her first feature with Jaglom, “Hollywood Dreams,” earned her Best Actress at WorldFest Houston, Montana International Film Festival, Fargo Film Festival and the Wild Rose Film Festival. The film took Best Picture honors at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival and Best Comedy at WorldFest Houston. Frederick was named Method Fest’s “Performer to Watch” and has also received the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival’s ” Maverick” Award.
