Ben 'The Deakinator' Deakin is quite easily our longest-serving ONZA athlete.

One of the kings of POV footage, Antoine Buffart. After seeing several insane segments from his trip to Queenstown, New Zealand, we thought it was time to get the Crankflip Boss on our team. For us Antoine is one of the most stylish and creative riders out there!
Dario is one of those likeable guys who is just good at everything. From bikes, to skis, to cameras, he dedicates his time to seeking out new adventures and creating content both in front of and behind the lens. The Swiss Alps are his home, and it reflects in his style and pursuit of perfection!
