Lake Forest, CA — etnies and ThirtyTwo are proud to announce the first am to join their global snow teams: Tyler Flanagan. This 14 year-old Georgia-born goofy footer can often be found on his home mountain, Mammoth, blowing up the main park while bumping some hip-hop on his iPod.   

You may have seen Tyler grace the Trick Tips section in Snowboard magazine and score spots on Fuel TV’s Daily Habit and New Pollution shows. One thing is for sure, you will be seeing a lot more of this young man in the future.   

“I think Tyler’s a perfect fit for etnies and ThirtyTwo, said Team Manager Eddie Lee. “He’s a well-rounded rider, and most of all, he’s really stoked to be a part of the brands. 

Welcome to the team, Tyler!
