Factory Media proudly presents the Cooler x O’Neill Ambassadors; Dasha Love, Maria Pizzeria, Suzi Kemp and Jess Piper!
Cooler has partnered with O’Neill on this exciting new project to showcase O’Neill’s street collection to Cooler’s unique and stylish audience.
The ambassadors are a new breed of aspirational and inspirational multi-taskers – Dasha and Maria have graced Cooler’s pages many times as interns, photographers, online gurus whilst Jess designs Man Up Girl!, one of the most exciting new skate inspired labels around and Suzi is a ridiculously talented illustrator who’s previously worked with the likes of Heroin skateboards and i-D online.
Dasha, Jess, Maria and Suzi will be a major part of the Cooler site, blogging about their latest projects, sharing their inspirations on our instagram, checking out the latest O’Neill products for our readers and starring in home-made phone video edits (turned into urban avant-garde master pieces with the help of Maria’s famous gifs).
The ambassadors are in a huge shoot in the Spring/Summer issue of Cooler out now.
The girls introduce themselves here:

Europe’s leading action sports media owner, Factory Media, today announced the launch of ‘Ride to Glory’, a unique BMX event developed by its in-house team to help Sony Ericsson promote the Vivaz™ handset.
An epic content battle, the campaign will see five teams of five riders from leading BMX brands travel the length and breadth of the country as they go head-to-head for a week of savage riding, gruelling tasks and general debauchery. Each team will fight to pull off and record the very best tricks and challenges on their Sony Ericsson ‘Vivaz’ handset, including the longest jump, highest air and the most 360s in one session. The videos, stills and editorial will be exclusively promoted by Factory Media in its Ride BMX Magazine and on its flagship digital portal, MPORA.com and over 5,000 connected sites. The campaign is set to reach well over 500,000 fans at a cost of around £100,000.
