OMG are you like, pro?
Arnette is excited to announce two major additions to their Global Pro Team. First on this list is Kevin Jones, who was a key figure in Arnetteâ€™s early snowboard dynasty and has had an undisputed impact on the snow shred world. Joining Kevin is up-and-coming Midwest ripper, Ethan Deiss, whose DIY approach to snowboarding and ride whatever comes his way attitude make him another great addition to the Arnette crew.
Kevinâ€™s 20 year influence on snowboarding includes years of crushing contests and taking a skate-style approach to big mountain terrain. With his heavy video part in Standardâ€™s TB20, Arnette is more than excited to have Kevin back on the team. Besides Arnette, Kevin is riding for Bluebird Snowboards, Billabong, Union Binding Co., DVS, Remind Insoles, Bern and Nalkin.
â€œArnette was my first goggle sponsor and it will be my last!Â I could have ridden for anybody, but I chose Arnette because I care about my eyeballs, something I didn’t always think about the first time around!â€ commented Jones.
Ethan Deiss blew up in the snowboard world a couple years ago when his video part was posted online and drew the attention of major forces in the industry. A guy that appreciates riding Troll with his boys as much as he does world class terrain parks, Ethan rides wherever and whenever he can. Besides now being a part of the Arnette family, heâ€™s backed by Burton Snowboards, Monster Energy, Gnarly Gloves and FLP.
â€œIâ€™m soo hyped to be on the Arnette program, I couldn’t be more stoked!Â Are nothing but nette! 3 pointerâ€¦ get it?â€ commented Deiss.
Kevin and Ethan are joining a tight, but growing, crew of snowboarders supporting Arnette, including Devun Walsh, Dustin Craven, Sage Kotsenburg, and Zac Marben on the Global Pro Team.
â€œThese guys are perfect for Arnette. Both Kevin and Ethan are all about having fun with friends on this hill, creativity and doing things on your own terms. Theyâ€™re both pushing the creative side of riding and Iâ€™m psyched to have them on the crew,â€ commented Robbie Sell, Arnette Snow Marketing Specialist.
