Well it looks as if the Bataleon battalion out-fought the DAKINE crew in the last of Round 1 of Battle of the Brands. The boardin’ by Bataleon was enough to best the squad from Hood River, but not by much. Hundreds of votes were cast and the ballot has spoken in BOTB. Bataleon moves on to Round 2 and lives to fight another day as they square off with 2012 BOTB champion CAPiTA.
