With the rapid growth and development of the freestyle scooter industry over the past few years; riders and companies alike are becoming much more selective with who they choose to promote and associate themselves with. Having long term affiliations between brands and riders is only part of what determines the future direction for both parties. August 2014 marks when Dylan Kasson and PROTO scooters pursue separate paths.
Statements from both parties are as follows:
“After being with PROTO since its creation, I have decided to part ways to further my career as a professional scooter rider. I will always know PROTO as the indisputable originator of every aspect of modern street riding, and wish Andrew and the rest of the team the best of luck on their next full length video. Thank you for six unforgettable years.” –Dylan Kasson
“No matter the reasons for riders and companies to part ways, it is always a bummer to lose someone who has been so influential to a brand. Dylan was one of a select few riders who got to see PROTO built from the ground up and who’s involvement through the early years really helped shape and direct this company. Dylan’s dedication to riding and this industry is pure and I wish him the best in all future endeavors, on and off the scooter. Thanks for the good times!” -Andrew Broussard
