…What could I say about EvanDivision.. everything began a day in Prato Nevoso. I was talking with Andrea Salzano and he told me about his great passion for snowboarding and his search for a sponsor which was never coming.
That day I was there to ride with a dear friend of mine (Andrea Marchi – Team 100% Brumotti)…two years after my injury in the pipe. Well, as we were in the park I noticed he was wearing a YP T-shirt and he told me that he could have sponsored me as a surfer. Well, in fact I’ve been surfing for 14 years now, and I’m pretty good.
Later in the same day we met again Salzano and after a few hours we find ourselves drinking in a bar and talking nonsense.
Since I was a surf and longskate shaper, and since we were in a very good mood that day, we decided to create a multi sport team with the aim to convince as many people as possible to move their ass out of the couch and to go riding. Skate, surf, skim, snow, whatever.
…last but not least, YP helped us a lot, sending us hoodies, t-shirts, stickers, caps and so on to begin our new adventure… And soon after also Paolo of the Turtle surf shop helped us with all the other stuff, protections, trucks, bearings, wheels, grips.. we couldn’t ask for more.
Since that moment we made a lot of things, and you can follow us on our facebook fan page… we often publish pictures and videos… we really want to push anyone who’s fed up of soccer! We’re testing on our skin every single centimeter of asphalt.
We really want to say thanks to all those who support us (wives, girlfriends, friends) and those who take us pictures and videos… I don’t know where will this project lead us, we just enjoy it having fun!
