AHD AND MATT PRITCHARD CALL IT QUITS!

Maui Hawaii. March 28, 2003

Effective immediately, PWA World Freestyle Champion Matt Pritchard and AHD

Boards will no longer be working together.

"We have had a good run together over the past 6 years, it¹s just

unfortunate to not be able to finish out my contract with them. I will continue

to focus to defend my freestyle title and put myself up on the wave podium this

year!" said Matt.

AHD Marketing Manager, Fred Galvani said ... "Matt is a very professional

guy and gave us the best with none less than a World title. Unfortunately we

just weren't able to find an agreement for the current year. We'll keep a friendly

relationship and AHD wishes him the best".

Matt, has been working hard at it on Maui pushing board designs with local

shaper Mark Nelson, who will be building all Matt¹s boards.
