Congratulations Nicola and CWB. They should do well together. CWB is adding lots of young talent. Tony Iaconni, Daniel Powers,Josh Twelker.

Congratulations to Nicola Butler, the best female wakeboarder that I know of, and a person who is obviously better than most of the male population of amater and some pro riders. She's incredible.

That CWB team rolls DEEEEEP. Wow. Nice addition.

Good for her, in regards to sponsor money and perks. Bummer in my eyes though, because

She is now part of this:

(The very same corp that ran Company into the ground)

There is a sad bit of irony there.

Congrats to Nicola. I heard the rumor months ago. Glad it became a reality! Stoked to have her on the team. She's the best.

Let's not turn this into a thread about industry politics and ethics.

So happy for her! i had empathy for all the company athletes when the lawsuit shook everything up. And while we aren't looking to turn this thread about industry politics and ethics
can we start a new one about them? cuz that link opened my eyes lol

Says the guy who is sponsored by CWB ;)

Wasn't my intentions, just a short response on how I feel...

Awesome news.
she will no longer have to ride around on a blacked out board.

as for politics :banghead:... it would have been real irony to go with LF... or maybe it shows/ would have shown a great act of "burying the hatchet."

captain_vilfo 02-13-2012 11:11 AM

I guess you can look at it in the way of she went to a "smaller" company in CWB than with LF lol

xistential 02-13-2012 11:17 AM

Still feel so sad about Company's demise. Had a great team and they made a fantastic product. Justin is also one of the most genuine people I've met.Is there anybody in the industry who deserved it less??

thescott 02-13-2012 11:21 AM

I'm hoping they put out a welcome vid like they did for D. Powers. Would be awesome to see some new footy of her. Nicola shreds!

hawkeye7708 02-13-2012 7:08 PM

It was only a matter of time before Nicola got picked up, but glad to see she's signed again. Congrats Nicola!

Maybe this is just me, but I was hoping Ronix would pick her up!

Great female riders are certainly a hot commodity in the industry.
