Los Angeles, CA. – The first signing in 2012 for Ocean Current now belongs to Top AM skateboarder Austin Poynter of Oceanside, CA.
Austin’s natural style, focus and determination set him apart from other skaters his age. His diligent hard work towards being the best (in school and in skating) has put him on the fast track to going pro and skating against the best in the world. Austin’s win at the Vans AM Protec Combi Contest this past weekend at the Van’s Saktepark in Orange, CA. has given him back-to-back Championships at this event (2011 & 2012).
Team rider Aaron Astorga notes; “Austin’s our first round draft pick and this win from last weekend solidifies that”.
Marketing Director Jeff Marshall states; “All of us here at Ocean Current couldn’t be more happier with this new addition to our diverse championship team, Austin brings great talent and that spark of youth, this is a very exciting time for all of us”.
