Berrics cofounder Eric Koston has officially announced his next board sponsor, and he’s bringing fellow Numbers cruncher Antonio Durao (aka Switchonio Switchao; aka Switch Jesus) along for the ride at… Skate Mental! Koston is stranger to having a board or two at Brad Staba’s stable, and the match makes sense: Skate Mental’s irreverent, fun-loving approach jibes pretty well with a legend who can be found slappying—and kickflipping—a boogie board (see below).

As far as we know, there wasn’t an announcement stating that Koston’s previous sponsor Numbers was calling it quits, but this confirms that Koston and co-owner (and former Girl teammate… confused yet?) Guy Mariano have both moved on to less numerical pastures. (Mariano now rides for Shane O’Neill’s April.) Congrats bossman!

Take a look back at some of Koston’s many, many classic moments (below). If you’re interested in his 14-year history of Berrics videos, please click here.
