This just though from Heavyweight Brands: the Australian based home of Picture Wheel Co and Holiday Skateboards are proud to announce the signing of Hoon Skateboards.
The agreement brings Hoon Skateboards manufacturing and worldwide distribution under Heavyweights management commencing immediately.
“I am very excited to be announcing this new partnership with Andrew Currie and Hoon Skateboards today” said Heavyweight Brands Director Ben O’Neil. “Cuzza has been a staple in the industry since before I had even picked up a board. The licensing agreement is more than just a mechanism to add another brand under our roof and distribution list. We both have a huge belief and shared interest in Australian brands and take a lot of pride in the local industry. I’m looking forward to cementing the brand long term here in Australia and building it into the International scene while backing Australian skateboarders”.
“Since Hoon kicked off as a company in 2006 we’ve been puttin’ along, tinkering with the engine, givin’ it a decent rev once in a while” comments Hoon’s founder, Creative Director and Pro skater, Andrew ‘Cuzza’ Currie. “However, with Heavyweight’s Benny O’Neil sharing my vision for the future of Hoon Skateboards, it really feels like we’re about to drop the peddle to the floor and really give it some!”
Hoon will have a summer hardware range available in-stores November 20th.
Hoon has been exclusively available in Australia but will now be offered worldwide through the distribution channels used currently by Heavyweight for its existing brands.
