Welcome Jeff Thorburn

November 21, 2012
For immediate release:


Vancouver, B.C. — SBC Media is proud to announce
the addition of lifelong skateboarder, photographer
and magazine junkie Jeff Thorburn as the new editor
of SBC Skateboard magazine.
Based in our Vancouver office, Jeff brings more
than a decade of industry experience to the team,
from photographing some of Canada’s top skaters, to
most recently working as the skate hardgoods buyer
at The Source in Calgary, AB, one of Canada’s most
successful and influential shops.
An avid collector of nearly every skate mag ever
printed—with a keen eye for detail and a solid sense
of what Canada’s national skate mag should bring
to the table—Jeff understands implicitly the components
of a great editorial package.
With his inspiring vision for the future of SBC
Skateboard and deep connections within the skate
world, Jeff will be leading the charge into our most
thrilling season to date.
We couldn’t be more excited. Please join us in
welcoming Jeff to the team.
