Slater Trout Joins Team Boardworks, Overflows Board with Sponsor Stickers
Way to go Slater Trout: The
kid guy with the coolest name in Stand Up Paddling has officially joined Team Boardworks.
Slater was already riding Infinity boards, which are now a part of the Boardworks group, so it was a pretty easy fit.
Though he might be struggling to find room on his boards for all those sponsor logos… in addition to Boardworks/Infinity, Slater is also decked out by Maui Jim, Camelbak, FCS, H2OAudio, OAM and Hi Tech Maui.
Not bad for a guy who only just turned 17.
Trouty, as he would no doubt be known if he was Australian, also snagged the #8 spot in the Top 11 of 2011 (though I’m still waiting for him to add a SUPracer sticker to his board…).
Slater will be pimping the new 2012 Infinity/Boardworks race boards (and breaking more young girls’ hearts) this Friday at the Infinity Surfboards store in Dana Point, California.
