Jose, who is scheduled to compete in the Santa Cruz Ocean Spirit Wave Festival in Portugal later this year, said “as a kitesurfer I’m in the ocean everyday and have learnt to respect it and although I have always been environmentally aware, like many people I realise there’s more that we all could be doing. I’m very proud to be part of The BLUE® Project motivating and working to inspiring people to do more for the environment”.

Sailing hero Conrad Humphreys, founder of The BLUE® Project, welcomed the new ambassadors saying “We’re very proud to have both Jose and Ben onboard, their own experience and understanding of the ocean is second to none and their standing as sports people makes them ideal role models for inspiring young people across the world.”

The BLUE® Project ambassadors come from a variety of sporting backgrounds and include, Polar expedition team Rob Guantlett and James Hooper, Solo Pacific Ocean rower Roz Savage and previous European snowboard champion Dan Wakeham.

Upcoming BLUE® events include the Archipelago Raid in Scandinavia, Sara Campbell’s world-record freedive attempts in Egypt later this month, and a BLUE exhibition at the House of Commons (London) where the UK’s Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Andy Burnham) and the Secretary of State for the Environment (Hilary Benn) will meet with BLUE ambassadors to discuss the possibilities of the project prior to the Marine Bill being announced.
