If you’ve been on our website lately or if you’ve seen a brochure for our Key West Spring Breakspecials or the Island Adventure, then you’ve probably caught a glimpse of the beautiful blonde in a bikini standing next to a handsome, well-built guy. That would be Fury’s very own Agnes and Shon. I happen to love the photo because, first of all they look great, and second of all they’re my friends and a couple of my very favorite members of the Fury crew.
When I first posted the photo to Fury’s Facebook page a few months ago, one of our fans responded saying that we needed to use “real people” to represent our trips and not models! Well, meet our model-caliber crew Shon a parasail captain and Agnes a catamaran crew member.
In fact, we use Fury crew members for lots of our promotional photos. Flip through a brochure and you just might find a picture of the person who harnessed you up on the parasail boat or the mate who kept your margarita full on the Commotion on the Ocean.
Today, let’s get to know Shon and Agnes. I chatted with them earlier and here’s what they had to say about living in Key West, Spring Break, and working at Fury.
Fury Girl: What do you love about living in Key West?
Shon: Being able to spend so much time on the water. I love that I can go fishing during the day and catch my own dinner.
Agnes: The outdoor lifestyle. I spend 99% of my time outside in the fresh air. I love the smell of flowers and the ocean. I can do pretty much anything outside: eat, work out, work, sleep, study. I like to feel the wind in my hair.
FG: What’s your favorite thing about working at Fury?
S: There’s always a new challenge. I also like meeting new people every day.
A: It’s a very active job and it keeps me in shape. I love being able to swim and get a tan at work.
FG: What’s your favorite Fury trip?
S: The Ultimate Adventure because it includes a lot of activities, such as snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing, and kayaking.
A: I like the Rum & Reggae. It’s later in the afternoon, so it’s a great crowd. Everyone’s relaxed and chill. You get to snorkel and see the sunset. It’s a nice ending to a busy day when I can stop for a minute and watch the sun “go to sleep.”
FG: What’s your favorite Spring Break hangout?
S: I like going to Dante’s during the day or out on a boat to one of the sandbars.
A: I like the beach outside Salute Ristorante. It’s easy access to drinks and yummy food, plus the beach and volleyball.
Well, there ya have it! Look for Shon and Agnes the next time you’re aboard a Fury Catamaran or parasail boat!
