To me, NJ has always been the biggest inspiration, not because he's the most technical, but because he made the sport fun, casual and uncompetitive. Cabrinha just lost a part of their soul and identity to me.

what team is he leaving? because the whole marketing team went to NKB.
So he's leaving Neilpryde.... and the Cabrinha brand... And as brand names are just a thing you can change... maybe Neilpryde wil stop with cabrinha in the future. Who knows... for now the that seems the only big game changer in 2018.. no real innovation just another sticker

I sure hope so, I am staying through February 12 just to catch the KOTA. I have to say, from what I've seen of these guys in Cape Town, that video and Kevin's others truly show what they are like. Upbeat, cheerful, and full of fun. It's not just a show for the video. Inspiring bunch.
