"We are stoked to join the Electric family, especially knowing that we can be different, and do what we want. We surf, skate, play music, build and ride old motorcycles, we live a diverse life, and Electric has a lot of these loves as well." – Scotty Stopnik
"Scott and Turk totally embody everything that is influential about California culture. Aside from shredding in and out of the water, their free wheeling creativity in finding and building things from heritage pieces in to something new is exactly what the Electric brand is all about." – Eric Crane, CEO
