SEB TOOTS SIGNS A NEW 5 YEAR DEAL WITH O’NEILL
Davos, Switzerland 2011 -January 11, 2011 – Canadian freestyle snowboard star Sebastian Toutant has just signed a new 5 year contract with O’Neill.
The 18 year old snowboarder – known throughout the world of snowboarding as Seb Toots – signed the contract in front of a crowd of fans at the O’Neill Evolution in Davos Switzerland just hours prior to his Slopestyle victory at the TTR World Snowboard Tour 6Star Event.
“O’Neill has been behind me since the very beginning, so this renewed partnership means a lot,” said Seb. “I’m stoked on the company, its people, and the amazing signature products that they’ve helped me create. So I’m sure the next five years with O’Neill will rock, just like the last five have!”
Seb joined O’Neill back in 2005 and in his 5 years with the brand has grown into one of the most exciting freestyle snowboarders in the world, pushing the boundaries and setting new standards in his sport.
“We are extremely proud to renew this contract with Seb for the next 5 years as one of the top snowboarders in the world,” Bernhard Ritzer O’Neill Director Global Sports Marketing. “Having supported him since he was a rookie we are excited to continue to grow this partnership and support him in what is going to be a huge snowboarding career ahead.”
“Seb has already established himself as one of the global faces of O’Neill alongside freeride legend Jeremy Jones and surfing superstar Jordy Smith,” said Bernhard Ritzer.
Currently sitting 6th on the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour, Seb’s victory here at the O’Neill Evolution comes off the back of his recent win at the Shaun White Air & Style in Beijing. Next up is Seb’s first ever X Games in Colorado where expectations are high.
