After much debate across the internet forums and Instagram feeds, Paul Rodriguez has officially announced that he no longer skates for Plan B Skateboards. In an interview for Power 106FM, a Los Angeles radio station, P-Rod explains that, “I’m in a point in my career where I kind of want to take some ownership of myself.” After 8 years of skating for Plan B Skateboards, Paul clarified that, “It’s been great, everyone on the team is family, it’s all love and there was never a falling out.” Rumors of his transition away from Plan B Skateboards started on Stop 5 of the 2013 Street League Skateboarding Series, when Paul showed up with a spray painted deck, rather than his signature model Plan B deck. Although we’re sad to see long term relations such as P-Rod and Plan B end, we couldn’t be more excited to see what Paul’s next move is.
