Importance to Mountain Dew and AMP:
Since the Frends crew is made up of all AMP sponsored athletes is great to see them doing so well. With their headphones and website being so popular in the snowboarding industry its a good sign of whats to come in the future with the AMP and Frends partnership. The Frendly Gathering was a huge success and that event was sponsored by AMP energy which was great publicity for AMP.
