The Exciting Sponsor News Continues!


-Scotty Wittlake might not be a “pro snowboarder” any more, but he is getting free socks from stance as part of its “Punks and Poets” program.


-686 signed Sammy Leubke. Now that we’re trying to trick you guys into liking “real mountain” riding, we should probably give that guy a Hump Day. Shit, shouldn’t have said that out loud.


-Rusty Ockenden brought things back to his motherland, and joined Endeavor. The enterprising Canadians also signed Cam Pierce and Kareem el Rafie to their Professional Snowboarding team.


-Pat Moore is making moore moves, and will be a good person to hit up for free shoes, as he’s now riding for Vans.

For those of you who were all like, oh man, Jed Anderson’s blowing off Airblaster for Nike money, well actually he’s still on the Ninja Suit team and also enjoying fruits of Bonfire money. We heard his check comes out of Colleen’s salary though. That, or he replaced Bode.


Flow picked up Kotaro Kamimura, because those Japanese kids are RIDICULOUS.


Jamie Anderson got a real big time agent, and now she’s on Oakley.

If you want to read press releases about this stuff, they’re mostly on Boardistan. Another good plan for keeping up with this crap is following brands on Instagram. It’s the new press release, really.

  • fired

  • hot potato

    so rustys rode for burton, then forum, then rome, now endeavor. i wonder who he’ll be with next year. either way the guy slays it and the industry knows it.

  • lurkin

    Endeavor is the shit. If you email their customer service the owner replies. Glad they’re making big moves

  • byebye

    rome is gonna be the next to go under

  • I won’t say

    that style and what you ride on has become the decider for who is pro and who is not. There are way too many good kids out there. However, it seems as if the industry has more money to throw around than ever, but whatever.
