RIKS BACKS YOUNG GUN TOM
Riks is pleased to announce their formal support for youngster Tom Bennett-Lloyd in partnership with Pryde Group UK.
Tom who has just turned 15, and his family, have had a Strong association with Riks and the JP Australia & Neil Pryde brands for a while now so it makes great sense for the bond to have been strengthened.
Tom, who will be no stranger to BOARDS readers, was recognised as an up and coming talent by JP as part of their Young Gun scheme a couple of years ago and with this new level of support Tom is in a better position than ever to progress further and compete for the top U15 junior places on the UK circuit this year in the freewave and slalom disciplines.
Good luck to Tom – be sure to check out further information at www.riks-sports.com where there’s also a recent video clip of his first loop attempt in the image gallery!
