It’s a new year, the holidays are over, budgets are fresh, contracts are up and you know what that means! Time for a ton of press releases about new sponsors. It only took three so far today before we realized we should probably be keeping this all in one post so keep checking back for the exciting updates…
-Volcom took advantage of the demise of the Program, scored Pat Moore onÂ boards and outerwear. Luckily, they had plenty of extra budget after losing Gigi, right?
-K2 finally moved Canada’s favorite son Jake Kuzyk to the international pro team. It’s about time this guy moved from Toonies to real US Currency. Although, we might recommend requiring his payment in gold.
-Â Freddie ‘The Fox’ Austbo is now riding for Rhythm Snowboards, which if you live in Europe, may or may not be interesting.
– Bode Merrill is on Billabong, which we assume lessens the sting of his bitter Real Snow defeat. You fought the good fight, Bode Man!
