Tosh Townend on Pocket Pistols

Friday, November 7th, 2008

tosh townendAfter a good while without a board sponsor, Tosh Townend finally has a home on Pocket Pistols skateboards. Pretty random choice, but cool none the less.

Pocket Pistols gave him a “guest” model deck, which I basically consider a pro deck without the same term, I guess. It’s almost hard to think of Tosh not on Element anymore. The dude basically embodied a lot of the company’s spirit. When I would think Element, I would almost instantly think Tosh. But I guess things happen and you got to move on.

In many ways though, I actually dig the new Tosh Townend better. He’s doing more things for himself and taking charge of his skate career. Such as his Winnebago project tour recently. Which happens to be out on DVD as we speak, if I am not mistaken. The entire trip was headed and brainstormed by none other than Tosh himself and takes place at various stops throughout the United States. Its one of those kinds of trips that we would all like to take with our skate homies. Hop in a van and skate across the country.

Another factor I’d like to comment on, is the fact that since Tosh isn’t with Element anymore he also lost his pro shoe with them. I happened to think his shoe was the best on the line but I guess his feet will be sinking into yet another new sponsor in no time.
