Urban World Series news of the week

Gustavo Ribeiro and Jart Skateboards parting ways is our first Urban World Series news of the week!

“Back in 2012, we first met Gustavo and could tell he had something special. Even if he didn’t speak much English, the excitement in his eyes said it all. We saw his potential and invited him to join the JART Skateboards flow team, starting a lasting bond. We’ve watched him grow, achieve his dreams, and supported him every step of the way.

Now, it’s time to say goodbye, but we’re left with great memories. Gustavo will always be part of the JART family and as he sets out on new adventures in and out of skateboarding, our best wishes go to our World Champion, Gustavo Ribeiro.” Jart Skateboards.

Who’ll be his new board sponsor?
