Rodrigo Tx. Joins Flip!

Posted March 14, 2006 by éS

éS team rider Rodrigo Tx. has joined former Firm teammates Bob Burnquist and Lance Mountain in a mass exodus to Flip Skateboards. Seems that the Firm went belly up over the weekend.

Flip is currently in production of their next video, slated for a 2007 release. Congrats and good luck, Rodrigo! There's no word yet regarding which board company Javier Sarmiento will skate for.

  11. Who ever said Flip is not that good is a complete dumbass. Arto Saari, Mark Appleyard, Tom Penny. Seriously. They are only the best team out there. The ES team is about half as good as the Flip team since Tom Penny left.

  18. Why did this have to happen on my b-day. The worst b-day I've ever had in my life. I dont think this fits Rodrigo though.

  19. This is one of the greatest bits of news I've read in a long time. I can't even comprehend the awesomeness of this. The new Flip video will be the greatest video ever made. Period.

  26. i didn't like the firm and i dont like flip. the only rider on flip i like is arto saari, and its a shame hes on etnies, he should get on emerica or something

    and dont tell people to "sh", its annoying

  27. I never liked The Firm, but Flip is cool( but Bob Burnquist sucks.). They can't lay a finger on Girl and Chocolate though, those are the best deck teams...period.

    Wes H. Posted: 9 years ago
  28. Javier should ride for Girl or chocolate.

    Wes H. Posted: 9 years ago
  29. i dunno who javier is, now SHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. isnt it weird how once one of the hot am's on a farlly underground company goes pro, the company goes under. First with Omar and Rasa Lebre, now Weiger and Firm.

    NOMXPXFX Posted: 9 years ago

  35. landardini - You get exactly 0 more comments like that. Next one and you are out of here.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  36. I never liked The Firm either, but now flip team is really sick. But every team with Penny in his rooster is already gnarly. But the best team is supra`s

    incsk8 Posted: 9 years ago
  37. Thats cool i guess, i could see em on Chocolate or something more then Flip but thats cool still.

    And thank you Josh P for shuting up that LANDARDINI guy! haha

  38. the flip team is awesome but i dont like the wood.

    dude_the_guy Posted: 9 years ago
  39. this is crazy. but i like flip better before.. rodrigo and burnquist fit better somewhere else.. its probably because flip is a euro team (except appleyard).. rodrigo and burnquist must start a new board company, that would fit them best

    proudlyPinoy Posted: 9 years ago
  40. personaly i hate flips decks but there team is another story.........rowely,appleyard,arto,and now bob and tx crazy
