SEATTLE, Wash. – K2 Snowboarding is stoked to promote two riders to their International Pro Team by bringing up Tim Eddy and Matt Belzile to the talented squad. Both riders have been part of the K2 family for more than seven years riding on K2’s Amateur Team, and now’s the time for them to step into the spotlight.

“Tim is one of those guys who’s just addicting to be around. He’s the kind of human that positively affects everyone he encounters and that personality couldn’t be more evident in his snowboarding,” said Peter Mullenbach, K2 Snowboarding’s Team Manager. “Matt demonstrates a professional approach to everyday life, not just snowboarding, and it has been great to observe him over the years. Both riders deserve this promotion and we’re so hyped to welcome them to the Pro Team.”

Eddy resides in his hometown of Truckee, Calif. After experimenting with all that snowboarding has to offer, he discovered his greatest passion – riding powder. Eddy spends most of his days searching the backcountry for the best pow lines out there, while keeping his stoke level high. He shreds locally, lives off the grid, and uses his splitboard to access the goods. A seasoned, charismatic member of the K2 family, Eddy’s ascension to pro status comes with its perks.

"K2 feels like home to me, and turning pro is finally getting my own bedroom in this radical house of K2 Snowboarding that I've been living in for all these years,” said Eddy.

Hailing from Aylmer, Ontario, Canada, Belzile brings a versatile style and approach to riding to K2’s Pro Team. Living in Whistler, he is one of those riders that can shred anything. From steep backcountry lines to urban sessions, and rail slashing, his skill and drive to progress his game and grow the sport is infectious.

“I really looked up to the K2 Pro Team when I was growing up, so I couldn't be more happy to now be apart of it,” said Belzile. “The entire K2 Team has such an awesome attitude and a Northwest vibe that I'm really down with. I love K2 boards and will happily ride them into a million sunsets.”

Eddy and Belzile join Danny Larsen, Jake Kuzyk, Lucas Debari and Leanne Pelosi on the Pro Team.
