Anne-Flore Marxer just got hooked up with APO and will be riding their MTD board from now on. X Games medallist Spencer O’Brien is also in their team and they’ve got a whacking great 4 girls boards in next year’s line. AFM has fingers in just about every snowboarding pie from comps to big booters in the soft stuff, and whenever she pops up on the youtube she’s having a laugh. She’s downright rad at sliding down mountains, and not even ‘for a girl’ rad, just plain rad. Plus, she has the industry standard 3 letter name, she’ll go far for sure. Big up yourself AFM.
Here’s what APO and AFM herself said about the move:
‘‘I’m glad to announce that I just signed with Apo! I most definitely LOVE my new board! Super playful, light under the feet, mad pop, double rocker and super easy in pow but still awesome for freestyle moves! It’s been a while since I had such a fun toy under my feet! The team is full of really fun shredders who I have tons of respect for and love to hang with! The Apo office is right around the corner and I LOVED our very first meeting which was supposed to happen in the office and ended up as a big half day of pow shred before everyone went back to work! 40cm and blue sky, what else for a great start!?!
Stoked to add APO to my sponsors who let me live my passion to the fullest and support me, APO, Swatch, Sosh, Oakley, Blue Tomato, 32, Etnies, Recco, TSG protections, Buff and Keep a Breast. Thank you all!
