El Segundo, California â August 16, 2011 â GLOBE, designers and distributors of shoes, clothing and cruiser skateboards, today announced the signing of three new snowboard team riders Romain de Marchi, David Carrier Porcheron and JP Solberg. The three riders are all part owners and pro-riders for YES Snowboards. GLOBE has also partnered with the YES crew on their debut film release â YES. Itâs a Movie, featuring the entire YES team.
âWe are super excited to partner with the YES guys. We feel lucky to work with a solid group of individuals who have as much drive for the mountain as they do for skateboarding and surfing,â said Matt Hill, CEO Globe International.
Romain de Marchi, David Carrier Porcheron and JP Solberg from all corners of the world came together to form YES Snowboards in 2008. Each combines their own style and attitude on the snow with their same passion for fun and progression. The three pros have all signed with GLOBE shoes and cruiser skateboards and will also be working closely with GLOBE in the coming months on product collaborations.
âWe are happy to join the GLOBE team and to have great projects in motion with âYES. Itâs a Movieâ and YES and GLOBE brand product collaborations already in development. More good things to come,â said David Carrier Porcheron.
