RES Denim has been acquired by Lush Productions from the Bradmill Group. The recent acquisition of Res Denim by Lush Productions adds substance and a strong proprietary brand to it’s industry leading portfolio.

Introducing the Clay Marzo ‘Mad Cat’ Pro Model by SUPERbrand

Clay Marzo is probably the maddest cat we know. His new signature model—dubbed the MadCat—features all the elements that allow him to go HAM on just about everything from waist high slop to double overhead perfection, from deep pits to mind bending rotations. With extra width in the nose for paddling power and nose pick recoveries, full, boxy rails to match his power, and a pulled in, rounded square tail to keep things quick and tight, the Mad Cat is Clay’s ideal sled and will most likely be yours. All the features that make this board perfect for Clay’s mad, raw style also make it forgiving, easy to paddle, and ultra smooth in rail-to-rail transitions.
