The North Face team has had a standout season. Cole Navin's shots in living room initiated this thought, Blake Paul's showing at the Natural Selection Tour kept the ball rolling, and then Jess Kimura's award winning film, Learning to Drown, gave us this lasting impression. Then, as if we needed any more reasoning, Schubert's standout shots in Good Sport ingrained this reality in our memory indefinitely. The notion that The North Face has a stacked team is objective—hell, everyone and their mother wants to associate with them.
Well, lucky for you, The North Face is providing the opportunity to not only join the team with a 2-year contract, but also reap the benefits of athlete mentorship, educational sessions, and potential collaboration opportunities. There's no better time to join forces with The North Face, and this is the perfect opportunity.
