It looks like Greg Illingworth is back on Snafu! Check out a few words from him about the news and I’d hope this means we’ll be getting a fresh welcome edit? Fingers crossed.
“I had a brief history with SNAFU in the past, but things didn’t work out as planned. The brand is under new management now and I am excited to be a part of it. The opportunity to help with the design of parts has been an aspiration of mine for a long time. To be joining Harry & Zack on the team is an absolute honour, I look forward to shredding with them. I have no doubt that working with the Beard will be a thrilling and prosperous adventure.”- Greg Illingworth
It looks like some of the new changes for Snafu are starting to happen already. Jeremiah Smith left the team the other day and now Harry Main has joined the team. Here’s a few words about Harry joining the team…
“We are stoked to announce that Harry Main has joined the SNAFU Pro team. Harry is one of hell of a talented rider and
brings a lot of energy and great ideas to the program.
We feel he is the perfect fit for the new direction we are going with SNAFU.
Here is what Harry has to say about joining SNAFU….
“Im so excited to be working with SNAFU and everyone involved.
Snafu is kickass and I am going to be making sure you guys have plenty
of Rad products and Rad colorways to shred with. The direction that Snafu is heading in
since new ownership, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”- Harry Main”
I had heard some rumors that Snafu had been sold, and that there were going to be some changes to the brand coming. I didn’t know for sure, but it was just confirmed in an email that I just received. Should be interesting to see where things go with the brand.
“Temecula, CA—On May 10, 2012,
SNAFU has been sold and is under new ownership. Matt Bischoff has been hired as new Brand Manager.
SNAFU brand manager Harold “McGoo” McGruther approached Bischoff regarding the SNAFU takeover last winter. After 13 years at the helm of the boutique brand he co-founded in 1999, the 50-year-old bike-industry veteran simply chose to pursue other business interests.
Matt Bischoff has been a part of the SNAFU team since the brand’s inception in 1999, and brings to the program a wealth of enthusiasm and experience.
Matt’s new responsibilities with SNAFU include sales, product development, team and brand management.
Expect some new and fresh things coming very soon from SNAFU.”
About damn time somebody picked up Zack. This is more than enough proof as to why this needed to happen…
“I recently got added to Snafu’s pro team and Redline’s flow team. This is my welcome to the team edit. Filmed in Philadelphia, PA and Tampa, FL. Be sure to check out:
