i cant see that at all. he doesnt look ike an oakley guy to me
I agree with your point about Sweet- people in North America may not consider them to be a big brand, but in Scandinavia and the rest of Europe they certainly are. They sell a lot of helmets, which are some of the best on the market. Their outerwear is dope, Wallisch is HUGE in Scandi-land so I reckon their relationship is a good one for both parties.
As for Amplid, and bigger brands wanting him, with more financial muscle, I wouldn't be so sure. Having spoken to one or two people recently involved in ski manufacturing, it's the big brands that are really struggling in this financial downturn. The gap between small ski makers and big ones is shrinking, rapidly, plus Tom gets a big say in Amplid ski development, so I would be surprised if he went elsewhere.
first, small time sponsers you get to work with a lot more than if you were with huge names
second, his sponsers right now are so sick, amplid- sickest skis ever, full tilt- sickest boots, spy-super sick goggs, sweet- nicest looking helmets i have seen, then jiberish makes some banging hoodies
i think that he is set for a while with the things he has
