Good Question Supplies have been named the new European distributors of Aussie brand, The Critical Slide Society. The new partnership will allow TCSS to further their presence in existing markets and enter new ones. Where TCSS is already present in the market, Good Question Supplies will continue to work with Wasted Talent.
Sam Coombes, founder of TCSS: “We’re stoked to be working with Good Question Supplies, adding to our established distribution with Wasted Talent. Critical Slide has had success over the past few years working with surf / lifestyle stores through France, Germany, Portugal and the UK. We’re thrilled to be expanding our reach and supplying markets we’ve had previous demand from, but unable to supply. It’s an exciting period for Critical Slide, the collections are looking incredible and sell through has been very strong, despite the challenges faced over the past 18 months. Pumped to see how far we can take the brand alongside Eric and team.”
Eric Bruweleit, co-founder of GQS: “Building a surf-related portfolio, we’ve been looking for a strong brand to represent the foundation of our wholesale activity. The Crititcal Slide Society (TCSS) is this kind of stellar brand and we’re grateful to be working with them, supplying dealers all over Europe with the finest surf apparel. For France, Spain and Portugal, we will work with Wasted Talent who have been pushing TCSS into the right direction for several years, and who are now stepping away from the distribution game towards an agency mode of operation. Other European territories will be covered by our established sales network. And for some countries we’re still looking for the right representation. Holla back if you feel this!”
About the brand:
“The Critical Slide Society (TCSS) was founded in 2009 in a sleepy seaside village on the Central Coast of NSW Australia. Launched by a couple of surfers and artists, Jim Mitchell and Sam Coombes, the founders had the vision of an authentic, creative label as a platform that celebrates an emerging alternative movement within surf culture: one that’s less about the winner’s podium and more about the simple joy of a deeply engaged surfing life. TCSS works with artists, photographers, designers, filmmakers, surfers from across the globe, all of whom share a similar outlook inspiration. TCSS prides itself on its unique approach its detail orientated design.”
