OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. (November 10, 2016) — Arcade Belt Co., maker of durable and highly functional belts that are built with athletes in mind, is excited to announce the addition of Tom Asta to its roster of brand ambassadors. Asta, a contender on the Street League Skateboarding World Tour joins the likes of Bobby Brown, Michelle Parker, Koa Smith and Gray Thompson on the Faces of Arcade team.
“As a skateboarding industry veteran of over 20 years, I know guys like Tom Asta don’t come along very often,” states Chad Foreman, Arcade’s marketing manager. “Tom fits right in with the Arcade family as he loves the product and truly believes in the brand. We couldn’t be happier to be working with such a talented skater and genuine person.”
Asta is known as one of the most well-rounded street skaters in the game. He continuously exhibits smooth style balanced with incredible technical abilities in addition to his will to go big in both competitions and film segments. Asta has competed in seven X Games competitions and in 2012 joined the elite ranks of the Street League Skateboarding World Tour. This season, Asta finished the Street League season ranked 6th overall and joined the 9 club with a nollie heel backside noseblunt at the Supercown Finals.
“I’m stoked to join the Faces of Arcade crew,” says Asta. “Before Arcade, I never wore belts because they restricted my movement, but these belts have the perfect amount of stretch to keep me comfortable, and they look dope, too.”
When he’s not traveling the globe as a Santa Cruz Skateboards ambassador, Asta resides in his hometown of Longhorne, Pennsylvania. Asta’s other sponsors include éS Skateboarding, LRG apparel, Electric Eyewear, MOB Grip, RICTA Wheels, Thunder Trucks, and FKD bearings.
