Irvine, CA, May 5, 2003 – Local snowboarder Matt Hammer tops off his 6th place finish at the Winter X Games in Aspen with his twelfth sponsorship deal. Hammer’s debut, and top finish, have placed him among the top slopestyle riders in the world. For years Hammer has gone head to head with other top riders in paid sponsorships and video parts but this year Hammer has catapulted to a higher level.

“A lot has happened this past year and I’ve been really blessed, says Hammer. Most notably, Hammer decided to hire the law firm of DAVIS DIXON KIRBY LLP. “DDK has been able to negotiate deals for me that I would never have gotten on my own, says Hammer. “Things are so busy now I need someone else to help look out for me, and DDK has delivered beyond my expectations.

Hammer recently signed with Flux Bindings based in Torrance, California. “We’re making a lot of changes at Flux and having Matt Hammer on the team will help give us the solid exposure we need to grow as a company, says George Trelut, National Sales Manager. Hammer also resigned with Seattle-based Supernatural Snowboards, Planet Earth, and Dragon Optical.

DDK negotiated Hammer’s lucrative contracts with Dragon Optical, Supernatural Snowboards, Planet Earth, and Flux bindings. Hammer’s other sponsors include Clive, 32, Etnies, Mammoth Mountain, Stussy, Elite Trading Cards, Defcon and Active Ride Shop.
