Kyle Norbraten & The Coastal Crew Part Ways

We are disappointed to announce Kyle Norbraten made a choice to no longer be a part of The Coastal Crew or Coast Gravity Park. We wish Norbz all the best in all his future endeavours.

 Norbs seemed to be going through some stuff earlier this year...but never thought it would come to this! Best of luck to him, can't wait to see what he'll do next

 Care to elaborate? I'm interested/worried about what's going on!

 I lived in Sechelt for 8 months last year and was at CGP every single weekend, and for Norbs privacy I won't comment specifically but things just seemed a little off with the crew

 Any word on what he'll be doing in the future?

 not riding professionally, honestly besides what was said in the article why would anyone need anymore info. He was and is an exceptional rider and thats what matters. Beyond that trying dig into personal details is pretty disrespectful in any case.

 My thoughts exactly, none of our business. He'll always be Norbs to us so we'll let him do whatever he needs to do!

 Im pretty sure it just started out being Dylan and Curtis, they both lived on the shore and then Curtis met Kyle at college or something like that, they also had Kyle J as part of the CC. I think Norbs doesn't want to be stuck at CGP for the rest of his riding career (I have no idea why) and I also think he wants to be known as an individual rider, not part of the CC (again, I have no idea why). But I suppose being an Australian I don't really know what has caused Norbs to leave (I hope its not his not his GF that is the cause of this) but I wonder if it will remain just Curtis and Dylan, I would be surprised if Brendan Howey was asked to join.
wish we could get some more info (if its not too personal to tell the whole mountain biking world)

 Song was kind of a d*** move don't ya think? For whatever reason he left (or got kicked out), I'm sure its a good decision for him. Putting out a video with crappy audio message aint kewl. Then say "We wish Norbz all the best in all his future endeavours.".

Feels like Cleveland and LeBron James all over again...

 Exactly. Kinda makes you wanna hate them...why would anyone do that.
  • + 2
 That does not make sense the video was made months before he left, so. . ., anyway thanks for one last crew edit of norbs guys!

 I'm a little late coming to the party, but I hope you guys still ride together. What happened to that other dude Kyle J? You don't have to answer that, but just hope he's still riding and whatnot. One of my all-time favorite trail edits was and still is your segment from "Kranked 8 Revolve"... totally sick from 2009! You can take the Norbz out of the coastal crew but you can't take the coastal crew out of the Norbz... cheesy I know.
