Nitro Signs Andrew Crawford

(October 1, 2003) Nitro is stoked to announce the addition of Andrew Crawford to the Nitro Pro Team!

“Crawford is not only a proven powerhouse, but his style of riding, tremendous skill and attitude make him a perfect fit with the rest of our pro team, says Tonino Copene, International Brand & Team Manager. “He’s the type of rider who just lives to put his board on and maul whatever is in sight. We are super fortunate to have him on board.

Crawford retains the same passion for riding that he had when he rode his first Nitro board at the age of thirteen, continuing to feed off of the progression of snowboarding. Watching someone else drop hammers just gets him more pumped to ride and have fun — it’s like adding fuel to the fire.

“Once he’s charged, he’s infectious, says Copene, “and that just pushes the rest of the team. Crawford joins the likes of Lukas Huffman, Shin Campos, Tyeson Carmody, Eero Ettala and Giacomo Kratter on the Nitro Pro Team.

A well-known personality in the snowboard industry, Crawford has traveled the word snowboarding for respected sponsors over the years — and it’s nice to have him finally return to his roots. His taste in cars and music is just a bonus. Welcome to the family, Andrew!
