Closer to home, we find representation for the British Isles in the form of sponsorship for Zero’s wild Scot John Rattray, and Londoner Nick Jensen of Isle Skateboards. Thunder routinely release short online videos of team riders, and a stand out in this series is certainly Jensen’s 2012 release ‘Nick Jensen Knows Control’. All the videos relate to the Thunder tagline ‘The Leader in Control’.
