Ontario, Canada’s Patrick Switzer, also known as P-Swiss, has been a dominating force in Downhill Skateboard Racing for several years now. Ranked #1 in the world in 2011 and #2 for the 2012 season, he is off to a strong start for 2013 with an impressive win at the Catalina Island Classic earlier this month in California.

Patrick visited NYC this week, stopping at Manhattan’s Longboard Loft to promote his new signature series equipment. P-Swiss drew a big crowd to hear him talk about his new Triple 8 Helmet and Rayne Pro Model.

P-Swiss is also the driving force behind Greener Pastures, the popular video web series devoted to bringing together talented skaters from around the world to ride and explore interesting places. Look for the latest series, Greener Pastures Offshore to be released later this year.

Bruno Sirera, a SURE Skateboards favorite and sometimes guest instructor will appear in the new Greener Pastures series, riding his new Bustin Boards Pro Model.
