Lance Mountain on Nike

New Addition to the Nike Skateboarding Team

The newest addition to the Nike Skateboarding team will not be the hottest, up-n-coming street ripper. No, the newest addition is someone who may have inspired you if you started skating back in the 80s. For all of us here at Nike SB, he’s always been a source of inspiration and continues to be one.

Please join me in welcoming Lance Mountain as the newest member of the Nike Skateboarding Pro team. The decision to put Lance on was not something we took lightly. While several of our pros may be regarded in certain circles as having “legend status, we’ve never seriously considered putting a true legend of skateboarding on the team. However, when Lance goes to accept his TransWorld SKATEboarding “Legend Award this June, he’ll be doing it in a pair of Nikes.

Currently, Lance is shooting his interview for the TransWorld‘s Awards issue and is also filming his part in the upcoming Flip video Extremely Sorry. In addition, Lance is working with our staff photographer Jon Humphries to get his first Nike SB ad, which should be dropping in magazines this July.
