Cartel Board Co are pleased to confirm the signing of Aussie bodyboarding legend Toby Player to the team. Cartel Board Co was established in the USA in 1996 and continues to play an important part in the sport of bodyboarding. Toby joins DK legend Paul Roach among many others in a truly impressive team of hardcore riders.
Cartel Bodyboards are distributed by Turbo Surf in Australia with a niche offering of high performance Signature boards. The board range includes the Paul Roach DK and Versatile Signature Boards along with the new Toby Player Signature Range. Toby worked with experienced Australian shaper Glenn Taylor to design his new signature model.
The Cartel board range will be officially launched in Australia in July 2009 when the one and only Paul Roach comes to Australia for the DK Sessions event at Tiona. A series of instore promotions with Paul Roach and Toby Player will also be undertaken. Keep an eye out for further details.
Toby had the following comments in regard the recent signing:
"I'm stoked to be joining Cartel, It's a fresh take on an established brand.
For the first time ever I've been able to work with a shaper in Australia (Glenn Taylor)
to come up with a sick template for my Signature model. You'll be seeing a lot more of Cartel in the future!"
