Austen Sweetin Joins Quiksilver Snow Team

By on November 8, 2016 in Snowboarding with 0 Comments

Fast. Cool. Quirky. Stylish. Fun. Crazy. Creative. Bold. There are a ton of different ways to describe Austen Sweetin. And now, a Quiksilver team rider is one of them.

We’re proud to announce the signing of the Seattle native. At 25-years-old, Austen has already made a huge impact after being named one of Snowboarder Mag’s top 10 riders and nailing the final section in Absinthe Films’ “After Forever”. He’s got a reputation as one of the world’s best all-terrain riders, which means and he rips at pretty much everything that can be ripped — street, park, back country, skating, surfing, guitar…life in general.

We’re proud to sign him. But more than proud, we’re stoked to see what he does next. Welcome to The Mountain & The Wave Austen!

Travis Rice:
“He is definitely one my favourite snowboarders to watch right now. That Miller flip over Craig’s Cross in After Forever? C’mon. Welcome to The Mountain and The Wave Austen.”

Bryan Fox:
“Austen is an extremely talented human being, but please don’t let that take away from the fact that I was his coach for six days when he was 11 years old. I may or may not have taught him everything he knows….haha. Honestly though, he lives and breathes boardriding and is a perfect example of what Quiksilver is about: traveling the world and experiencing cultures with a board under your arm. Welcome to the team my friend.”

Todd Richards:
“I haven’t seen someone able to read terrain like he does in a long time…actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone able to read terrain like he does. The kid is a freak! Great to have him on Team Quik.”

Mikey Wright:
“I love hanging out with the snow guys, so I’m super stoked to have another snowboarder on Quiksilver. And especially Austen. He’s such a legend. Easy to travel with, everyone loves him, and he pretty much rips at everything he does. Welcome to the team Austen! I took you to my hometown, when do I get an invite to yours?”
