Hood River madman and all around boss, Sammy Carlson, has joined forces with Quiksilver.

“He’s a great fit for Quiksilver,” says Global Head of Sports Marketing, Miky Picon. “We’re amazed by everything Sammy has accomplished both in and out of competition. His approach to skiing is one-of-a-kind and his values are perfectly in line with everything that Quiksilver stands for.”

Sammy joins Travis Rice, Mat Crepel, Bryan Fox and Austen Sweetin on Quiksilver’s snow team and in a sense, takes over Candide's spot that has been left vacant for over a year now.

Overall, I’m just stoked to join the Quiksilver family. The brand has such a deep history and I can’t wait to help progress the legend of the mountain and the wave into the future.” Congrats Sammy! Looking forward to more and more incredible content from you in the future.
