Academy Snowboards is proud to announce that Nick Karels will be handling the Midwest sales for the company. Nick currently reps Mission Six/Monix Storm Technologies, Supernatural Clothing, and Memphis Shoe Collection. Nick’s exclusive territory will consist of Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois.

“This territory is very important to us due to the amount of hype/interest in the brand our riders have generated out there. With Nick’s shop knowledge and experience (he was also the snow buyer for The Hut in Wayazata,MN), we are assured that he will protect and limit the supply for the demand for Academy in the Midwest. Nick is also very close with the rep group(Heavyset Industries) that handles Academy Sales to the east of his territory. This way we are guaranteed and ensured of the tightest distribution and image control for the entire Midwest and Great Lakes territories” expresses Ron Montgomery, U.S. Sales Manager for Academy.

Shops in that territory may contact Nick directly at 612-986-7573. Any other questions please contact Pentagon Distribution at 760-438-7674 or
