SEATTLE, Wash. (Feb. 12, 2015) -RIDE Snowboards, a leader in the industry for more than 20 years, welcomes versatile rider Dillon Ojo to the global AM Team. The 19-year-old Montreal native shreds hard, and turned heads this year with his dynamic street skills in his first major film part in The Snowboarder Movie FORWARD.

“Our vision for the AM Team is to have a bunch of friends – all with common goals and aspirations – hang out, snowboard, and film as a unit,” said Tanner McCarty, RIDE Team Manager. “Dillon integrated into the RIDE family seamlessly, and it just so happens that he’s one of the most bossy rail riders in the game. We couldn’t be more stoked to have him join the team.”

Ojo’s riding speaks for itself as he dominates just about any rail in any setting. And, his explosive personality and love for snowboarding make for the perfect addition to the RIDE team.

Performing on the RIDE Burnout board and Rodeo bindings, Ojo joins the talented and diverse RIDE AM team that includes: Dan Liedahl, Spencer Schubert, Beau Bishop, Derrek Lever, Alex Sherman, Brandon Davis, Jonas Michilot, Sami Luhtanen, Kalle Ohlson and C.S. Schneider.

“Let me start by saying that I’m more than hyped about this new journey with RIDE, not only as a brand but also with a new team of amazing snowboarders,” said Ojo. “It's not everyday that you get to team up with some of your best buds and I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s in store with these guys!”
