Eddie Wall is off FORUM

I not sure if you noticed; but Eddie Wall was wearing a Bond Outerwear T-Shirt while hosting the 11th Annual Transworld Snowboarding Rider's Poll Awards Saturday night in Denver.  He also did not go up on the stage with the Forum Team when they won Video Of The Year.  Weekend Snowboards is also claiming Eddie is riding for them on their facebook page.  It's a recession!

Greg Lutzka off Almost?

by Administrator 14. January 2010 18:38

Though no one seems to have mentioned it yet, Greg Lutzka's name is notably absent from the Almost skateboards team list. Riding for Almost since its beginnings, Lutzka's absence is significant though not completely unexpected. Lutzka's immense talents on board and his consistent presence and dominance in the contest circuit (a Gold Medal at X Games Mexico in '08 and the winner of the '06, '08 and '09 Tampa Pro) is sure to attract new board sponsors quickly. Where will the fedora-clad ripper end up next? Be sure to keep checking back and we'll bring you the latest.

Reese Forbes leaves Skate Mental

Original Washington D.C. ripper and long time big ollie powerhouse, Reese Forbes has just become a free agent in the board department. Skate Daily is reporting that Forbes has parted ways with Skate Mental, a company he co-founded with Brad Staba some years back. No word on how the split went down or if Forbes already has something in the works for the future. One thing's for sure, Forbes is still riding for Nike SB and Quiksilver and he can still ollie higher than 99% of people on this planet. After standout video parts in "Easter Exposure 3," Element's "Third Eye View" and most recently, Nike's "Nothing But The Truth, Forbes has got both skills and history behind him. He shouldn't be board-less for long.

Jeremy Jones Leaves Rossignol

"As of today I am no longer working with Rossignol Snowboards. It has been an amazing experience and I want to thank everyone at the company for supporting me the last 19 years. You always gave me the freedom to do what I wanted with my snowboarding. Off the hill I learned a ton about how to develop snowboards from the start all the way to the snowboard shop. This has been my college education.

I want to give a special thanks to Francois Goulet, the North American President. He was pivitol in helping me get Protect Our Winters of the ground and always supported my ideas. It has been an amazing learning experience watching him lead the company.

I have so many great memories from my time with Rossignol and I wish them the best of luck in the future. Hope to see you all in the mountains."
