We recently caught wind that local snowboarder Ricky Koukal has picked up a sponsorship from Arbor Snowboards. He will be joining the team with some big names such as Nick Visconti and Minnesota’s own Austin Young. If anybody has seen Ricky ride at Afton Alps, you know that he deserved it. Arbor even did a little interview with Ricky for their team page which you can check out on their site. Congrats Ricky!
