IPATH Announces Surf Team

IPATH Announces Surf Team

IPATH would like to announce the formation of their first ever surf team.  The original IPATH surf crew are a solid group of up-and-coming talents on the verge of making an impact in the surf 
world.

"IPATH has been original since day one and all of the surf athletes 
represent this very well," stated Dave Smith, IPATH's team manager.

The surfers join an extensive IPATH skate team with such notables as Bob Burnquist, Fred Gall and Kenny Reed, in addition to new guns Adam Alfaro and Richie Jackson.

The first crew of surfers to join IPATH includes Nick Jiampa, Pat 
Millin, Ben McBrien, Rob Wurlitzer and Will Skudin.

Team Background:

San Diego-based Nick Jiampa is a powerful, trick-savvy surfer who 
holds the dual role of team rider and journalist. Nick now is writing 
for Transworld Surf and traveling on many of Surf's editorial trips 
as an athlete and writer. Nick also rides for Zoo York, Pacific Drive 
and Anon.

Pat Millin is a pro surfer from Solana Beach CA with roots in Kauai, 
HI.  A sponsored skateboarder in his teens, Pat switched his focus to surfing after a fractured foot took him out of the game.  In addition  to IPATH, Pat is supported by Sharp Eye, UNIV, Zoo York and Robust  Flavor.

New Jersey-bred and Philadelphia-based Ben McBrien chows down on  hoagies and East Coast barrels. Ben also rides for WRV, UNIV, Zoo York, and Robust Flavor.

Rob Wurlitzer, local talent from Kaneohe, Oahu, HI, can be seen 
tearing up the Eastside breaks nearly every day.  When he's not in 
the ocean, he can usually be found making beats or performing and 
producing hip hop. He keeps it real with UNIV, Zoo York and HIC.

Will Skudin is originally from New York and now lives in Cape 
Hatteras, NC. Will is a dedicated big-wave surfer and has been a 
contender in the XXL Awards. In addition to IPATH, Will is supported  by Zoo York, WRV and UNIV.
