Finally it's official: JP joins the fine crew at Dakine!

"Dakine has always made the best products, I used to rock the gear here and there before I was even on the team. I'm stoked that it's official now. Being able to get surf gear it pretty tight too," said JP.

Whether he will be getting a signature mid-season glove for 2009|2010 is yet to be determined? It is likely that he'll get one for Winter 2011.
