APO expands its team and is proud to welcome Sammy Carlson to the global team.
Sammy is a Five-Time X Games Medalist, including Slopestyle Gold and Big Air Bronze in last year’s Winter X Games. Sammy also has also earned numerous wins and podiums at the Dew Tour, FIS World Championships, King of Style, JOSS, and Freestyle.ch.
Constantly progressing and innovating the sport, Sammy was the first skier to execute a switch triple cork 1260. He is also well known for his video parts in films from Poor Boyz Productions and Teton Gravity Research, and recently produced his second ski film this summer, On Top of the Hood. You can expect a lot more special projects in the future with the support of APO.
Sammy has been riding APO skis for a few weeks and he is stoked on the products.
Sammy says "I am stoked to join the APO team. We will be building skis from the ground up, the right way! The ski designer has over 20 years of experience shaping skis and snowboards, and he created the first slanted sidewall ski, the Scratch. We are working on a pro-model park ski coming out next year and we will also start working on a pro-model pow ski. I am excited to bring APO into the ski world, APO has been a snowboard brand for over 20 years. Keep your eyes out for some fresh videos brought to you by myself and APO.
Support the movement!"
Sammy uses the Hutch 78 for the park riding and the Rocko 86 in the backcountry. And he is currently working on a design for his new pro model skis in 2012-13.
Welcome to the team Sammy!
