Zeb Powell, the snowboard extraordinaire from North Carolina has just jumped from Nitro Snowboards over to Burton Snowboards as their new global team rider. $$$.
The 21 year old cracked the front mind of all snowboarders during his stellar performance in the X Games Knuckle Huck event last year (was sorely missed this year) and has been on our and everyones radar ever since.
He’s the kind of rider that you just never know what he’s doing next…which is perfect. This new change of sponsor should open up new opportunities for Zeb and some cash to dash around the world, doing his thing. Kudos.
From Burton Snowboards:
From growing up riding his local North Carolina ski area, to winning his first X Games Knuckle Huck, Zeb stormed the stage with truly unique style. He’s using his platform to inspire black riders and advocate for equal access to training. We’re excited to support his explosive creativity— in the streets and on every conceivable, and inconceivably, ridable piece of terrain in his path.
