Sponsorship agreement renewal between Suunto and Aida

Dear Aida freedivers,

I am very pleased to announce that Aida has renewed a sponsorship agreement with Suunto (www.suunto.com). This gives Aida the ability to use qualified, custom- made, Suunto D9 depth gauges in the upcoming World Championships and also in any future Aida world record attempts and competitions. This agreement also includes a full maintenance guarantee for these depth instruments.

Aida will also receive rash guard shirts for Aida judges, strengthening the Aida brand in these high level competitions. Aida will have the rights to use the exciting new “Suunto Movescount” functionalities integrated at Aida website (www.movescount.com or www.aidainternational.org — Competitive — Aida in Suunto Movescount).

I am also happy to inform you that high level Aida competition organizers now have a channel to Suunto if they would like to negotiate sponsorship agreements in upcoming competitions. Suunto and Aida have created this channel to facilitate and expedite agreements in any future competitions. Organizers may contact the Aida Sport officer for more details.

Aida has agreed to allow Suunto to use the Aida brand and requests our assistance for Suunto marketing purposes. I believe that this cooperation is of great benefit to both parties of this agreement.

In official release, Suunto President Mikko Moilanen states;

“Accurate and reliable depth measurement in the freediving World Record attempts and World Championships is a must, and we are very proud that Aida has again chosen Suunto dive computers as the official depth gauges in these events.

Our 75 year long heritage in manufacturing sports instruments combined with our new on-line diving community; offer all freedivers around the world the best possible tools in their sport.”

Yours Sincerely,

Kimmo Lahtinen
AIDA, president
