The Port Elizabeth (South Africa) Chevrolet dealership had recently donated a limited edition of the Chevy Utility pickup truck named UTESURF to local surfer Josh Enslin, who recently broke the Guinness World Record for the longest surfing marathon at Pollock Beach on November 14th and 15th.
Enslin’s new record is still technically unofficial as it is pending review by the Guinness organization. But let’s not get hung up on that; instead, let’s focus on the fact that with the event, Enslin raised 30,000 ZAR (a little over $2,000), and used the money to help children in need by obtaining clothes, food, and other non-perishable items for them.
Enslin’s efforts to support those in need were made easier by the Chevy Utility UTESURF, a limited edition model of the Gamma-based Chevrolet Utility subcompact truck that recently celebrated a manufacturing milestone. With it, the surfer was able to collect old surf equipment and old wetsuits that were also donated to children.
The GM Authority Take
Congrats to Josh on his success. Here’s to even more triumph for him into the future.
On a more vehicular note, does anyone Stateside wish that the Chevy Utility pickup, which is sold as the Chevrolet Montana in South America, were sold in the States? Talk to us in the comments.
