Richie Jackson Steps With IPATH

IPATH would like to officially announce the addition of Richie Jackson to the pro-rider family.  Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Richie's unique style blends perfectly with IPATH. One look at Richie's clip from the "Better than Life" video on YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CT6G0NjoqU) and it's easy to see why Richie was chosen for the IPATH team.

"Richie is one of those skaters that looks at spots differently.  Nothing that comes out of this guy is standard," commented Dave Smith, IPATH team manager. "Richie's one of those guys that can skate any spot and not worry about if the ledge is smooth or that there's a skate-stopper bolted on. He's goes his own way with his skating, which makes him perfect for the team."

Besides IPATH, Richie is also backed by Death Skateboards and Pig Wheels. He joins the growing IPATH collective that includes Kenny Reed, Fred Gall, Nilton Neves, Adam Alfaro, Bob Burnquist, Jack Sabback, Matt Rodriguez, Matt Pailes and Karl Watson.
