That’s right folks, we have something to smile about today, and so do you. In proper Exile form, and to continue our reign of excellence, we’ve kept two relationships with team riders alive in the past week that will surely help keep us on top of the skimboard world. Team Riders, Brandon Sears and Paulo Prietto have both re-signed to the team for another three years.
Brandon Sears has been on a mission to reassert himself in the top of the UST. His high point of 2009 was winning the WCS in June. A goal of every professional and amatuer skimboarder, which became reality for Brandon as he stormed past previous champions and other top UST contenders. Brandon’s full part in Stimulus is a regular footer’s dream part. It inspires all. Three more years with Exile is not only good for us though. Brandon has kept us on our toes with our manufacturing. Being one of the few riders that really knows exactly what he wants in his board, he has been a great judge of how well we are doing in the back, behind scenes. With a huge year on the UST and one of the best skimboarding video parts ever to be seen, we think our relationship is exceptional. We are stoked to have you for at least three more years Mr. Sears. Thank you for trusting our product, our values, and our goals.
Paulo Prietto has been pushing himself to the top of the skimboard world since he made the switch over to Exile Skimboards. He has set goals and surpassed them. As Paulo has dominated the UST, he has also been building one of the most successful skimboard lesson/camp companies as well. If you have ever thought about getting lessons, you need to check Paulo’s website, and contact him. SolagSkimSchool has been traveling near and far with camps, from Laguna Beach to Taiwan to Japan, Paulo is open to going anywhere to help skimboarding grow, and to help you develop your skills in the most efficient ways possible. The lessons/camps are well worth the little amount of money they cost, and the experience of being taught by one of the best people to have ever done the sport is a priceless bonus.
As you can see we’re excited about what’s to come. Here are a couple shots of these two studs in action. We’ll see you in the future.
