ELEMENT SEVERS A DECADE LONG RELATIONSHIP WITH TOSH TOWNEND
Element has decided to part ways with twenty-three year old Huntington Beach pro skater Tosh Townend.
Joining Element as a fourteen year-old he turned pro at the early age of sixteen with his first pro skateboard deck and eventually was instrumental in the launch of Element’s shoe division with the design and introduction of the “TOSH PRO” model shoe, leaving his long relationship with Emerica to do so.
Tosh is now a free agent able to pursue new opportunities in skateboards, footwear and apparel while maintaining his current endorsement relationships with Independent Trucks, Boost Mobile, CCS, Map Cargo, Upful Hardware and Super Brand Surfboards.
This decision comes on the eve of Tosh’s second independent skate film release “The Weenabago Projekt II/Crossing America” this summer. Along with touring on the Independent 30th Anniversary Tour, a film trip to Indo for the upcoming Super Brand Surfboards video and off to Japan for the premiere of “Life as a Movie” produced by and starring Benji Weatherly with an all-star cast of skaters, surfers, snowboarders and musicians.
