I also heard that Quicksilver is going to buy Plan B. That would make sense since they (Quicksilver) already own DC shoes and they have such strong ties with Plan B. Just sit back and watch Syndrome disappear? No i don't think so... Black label skateboards is already working things out with syndrome dist. They are a strong brand that will defiantly do well there. On top of that Syndrome was paying the Plan B riders way too much money and not selling enough boards. So im sure Black label wont be paying their riders 10 thousand a month each... There is also a new Plan B rider so wait a couple days and see..
