Longboarding – A look back at January 2013

New year, new sponsorship deals

A new year means new sponsorship deal for riders and these 3 deals made quite a buzz:

1: Patrick Switzer Joins the Ronin Family


P-Swiss interview on Ronin’s website talking about his move .

2: James Kelly now rides for Caliber Trucks

3:  Powell-Peralta grabs Byron Essert and Kevin Reimer


It’s bye bye Rayne for K-Rimes. Him and these wheel team-mate Byron Essert made the move to  Powell-Peralta. Kinda of the natural progression with the tight knit between the wheel company and  Powell-Peralta. As first reported by Skate [Slate]
