You probably thought that Yuto Horigome was already pro based on the number of pro contests that he’s won over the past couple of years. But he actually just got his first signature board along with the unveiling of Shane O’Neill’s April. The graphic makes a lot more sense after watching the footage of Yuto receiving his debut model.
UPDATE 05.16.19: It looks like the April introduction video wasn’t actually Yuto’s pro debut. Peep the official part from Nike SB and April above.
