Since the announcement that Forum, Special Blend and Foursquare are officially shutting their doors for business, team riders have been on a frenzy closing deals for new sponsors to keep the dream alive. One of those riders is Pat Moore, and he’s in high spirits…

You have new sposnors supporting you, how has the transition been?

It’s been pretty awesome, I’ve gotten to go on a few trips with the Volcom and Vans’ teams and it was so fun. Just good groups of homies, I feel like I fit right in.

What has impressed you lately?

Bryan Iguchi, for someone who has snowboarded the entire length of my life his passion runs deep!
