Huge news outta the Ipath camp: Bob Burnquist is officially on. Here’s the press release…

Bob Burnquist on IPATH

IPATH is pleased to announce that Bob Burnquist is the latest addition to the team. Bob’s unique approach to skateboarding makes him a solid fit for the expanding IPATH crew.

From innovating every time he steps on a skateboard, to his own legendary backyard park and mega-ramp to organic farming, Bob follows his own unique path in every aspect of his life.

“Bob is a perfect fit for the IPATH team and we’re stoked to have him onboard, stated IPATH’s president Brian Krauss. “Bob’s distinctive approach to skating and the decisions he makes on a personal level mesh perfectly with IPATH’s vision. Our entire team is made up of unique individuals and the addition of Bob to the crew only enforces that.

Despite turning pro in Brazil when he was 14, he was a relative unknown in the US until he won the prestigious Slam City Jam, stunning the crowd with his technical switch skating. This then catapulted his skateboarding to numerous other successes, including: Thrasher’s coveted Skater Of The Year crown and multiple X-Games medals. However, his contest wins only compliment his deep bag of trick innovations and other skateboarding firsts.

Bob is currently hard at work filming for the long-awaited Flip Skateboards video ‘Extremely Sorry’, due out spring 2008. Watch for more from Bob online at www.ipath.com
