First confirmed casualties from Quiksilver's reorganization are in. Long Beach's own Balaram Stack was let go from his Quiksilver sponsorship. The VSTR brand line will be discontinued, and Dayne Reynolds' Summer Teeth brand will be handed back to him. No cuts have been announced for Quiksilver's Europe team yet, nor any news about the sub-brands based there such as Moskova. A memo released by Quiksilver states that they will keep 130 surfers, and will continue to re-focus each brand where it is strongest.
