The latest “Firing Line” from Thrasher Mag made possible by The Shop Skateshop filmed by Frank Branca @frankbranca.
Last week, 1031 Skateboards pro Ben Raybourn quit to ride for Slave and was let go from Landshark Wheels, all in the same day. As a result, all of Raybourn’s decks are on sale over at the Regulator Distribution On-line Store for $27!
Here is the official press release:
Swoooooosh! Remember that sound? Thats right, its the sound of that toilet flushing again! In all seriousness though, We are here to announce that our little buddy Ben Raybourn is leaving 1031. At the same time he is also being let go from Landshark wheels. A quitting and a kick off all in one!? Weird right? Could be a first? Anyways, nothing ugly went down, we are all still friends. Ben is a great skateboarder and and even better person. And with that being said, as friends we support him in his decisions and wish him all the best!
Now is the time for you to hit the message boards! For the rest of us, we’ll be out skating!
We march forward.
