“Bahne has a strong brand name recognition among enthusiasts. My goal is to build on that recognition while protecting the brand at the grass-roots. We are utilizing sustainable and renewable sources in the area, and will be supporting only US based, US manufactured materials. While many of the other brands have gone off-shore and ruined our economy, we are doing to opposite…We are building a US-supported company throughout.”

“Action Sports companies need to re-invest back in America to save our economy, our profits, and our environment. Tomorrow starts with what and where we buy today.”

“This is a lifetime dream and I am looking forward to working with the Bahnes to make us one of the big players again,” said Weatherill.
