“You can choose a team that reflects the brand well without the dollars and the aggression and all the rest of it. It’s kind of a fun thing with New Balance; there is no drama, no pressure, no hefty sales.”
“When I first moved up to New York I skated with Rob Gonyon a lot because he rides for 5Boro and he’s from Queens. This whole Bronze thing started before I even knew it was Bronze.

“I feel like New Balance isn’t trying to buy the big names, we are just trying to get a team of dudes that travel well together, get along, love skateboarding and are down to work on project based videos. Hopefully NB can shine through all the bulIshit in that way.”
