We didn’t anticipate parting ways and there has been a common project in the works for the past few months, a second Franky OS skate, which we both decided to still release soon. Doing what you love, be it skating at pro level or running a skate company, can also have a tough business side to it and some decisions can be hard to make. Kato and Franky have come to this mutually and believe it will ultimately create a better situation for everyone involved. 

We look forward to the future and new team opportunities with excitement and anticipation, and wish Franky well wherever his path may lead.
