Hey, Kids (in Emerica, of course)! Be sure to come check out the Best Trick contest that Analog Clothing is hosting this Thursday, December 9 at the Skatepark of Lake Forest. Emerica pros Heath Kirchart, Leo Romero, Aaron Suski, and amateur Matt Allen , along with many others, will be throwing down some insane tricks in hopes of walking away $5000 richer. Here’s a map. (Zoom in!)
Emerica pro Tosh Townend just got back from a trip to Argentina with the Element team. There were no demos, just pure skateboarding...and lots of it. Tosh skated plenty of bowls and street spots and shot some photos. After getting back from that trip, the entire Element team got together for their team photo shoot. Fellow Emerica pro Chris Senn was also present for the shoot, flying in all the way from his home in Hawaii to be there. Tosh will be heading to Australia soon for Christmas and to celebrate his grandfather’s 80th birthday.
Thanks to all of you Kids in Emerica who came out for the Baker demo in Los Angeles this past Saturday. About 700 fans showed up to watch Emerica pros, Andrew Reynolds, Erik Ellington and Bryan Herman shred the park. Baker and Emerica product was given out to some lucky fans, as well as autographs for everyone from the team. Overall, it was a pretty bangin’ demo.
Emerica pros Ed Templeton and Austin Stephens will be flying off to England with the rest of the Toy Machine team for a couple of demos this week. Sidewalk magazine will be accompanying them along the way to shoot an article. Let’s hope the weather will be kind to them, as England sees a lot of rain this time of year!
Don’t miss your favorite Emerica team riders, along with the rest of Andrew Reynolds’ Baker Skateboards team, in action this Saturday, December 4 at 2:00 p.m.!

Firstly, let me apologize for taking so long to update your Emericaskate.com news. Wintertime, the holidays and vacation time (in Mexico!) have conspired to slow the rate of output from your humble narrator’s desk. That’s not to say, however, that nothing’s been happening. Oh, quite the contrary! Some secret missions from Emerica pro Heath Kirchart have been regular as of late. Seems Heath is fully recovered from the recent chronic knee pain that’s been holding him back the past month or so. Not so fortunate, however, is new Emerica pro Kevin Long. Spanky, who was similarly suffering from some acute knee discomfort, finally got a professional diagnosis and underwent minor knee surgery last week to fix the problem. No worries, though. This was no ACL-type surgery, and Spanky is already off the crutches and should be back on his new Baker pro model deck before the New Year!
