Just had this come through from the depths of the Capita offices in Melbourne…Dane Tiene is now is riding Capita snowboards and Union bindings!
It happened pretty quick. We were at Mt Buller for the Dew hut jam. One of our number one team rippers Ian Wallace broke his ankle frothing too much in warm up, so we were a man down. Dane had nowhere to stay that weekend so we offered him a bed in exchange for him riding for Capita in the Dew Hut Jam. It turned out that Dane liked the board and we were impressed by his reckless, stylish and at times dangerous take on snowboarding. He is also the only Australian up and comer with a cover under his belt. Keep an eye on Dane at style wars next week and say happy birthday if you see him around. Don’t worry about Ian. He will be fully recovered and shredding hard in a few weeks.
