Emericafest!, a gathering for Kids in Emerica Newsletter subscribers and their friends, went off in Fontana this past Sunday.
Emerica team riders Andrew Reynolds, Heath Kirchart, Bryan Herman, Ed Templeton, Leo Romero, Austin Stephens and Matt Allen all met up with Tosh Townend and his Weenabago Projekt crew (as well as hundreds of Kids!) at Active Ride Shop in Rancho Cucamonga, California for an autograph signing.
Immediately after the signing, the entire crew headed over to the Skatepark of Fontana for an all-out skate jam with nearly 1000 awaiting Kids. Active may have failed to deliver the promised hot dogs this time around, but no one seemed to mind too much once they got the chance to meet-up and skate with the Emerica team.

Chris Senn, Darren Navarette and Sam Hitz—-Emerica’s gnar-squad—all made The Carbondale Run out to Colorado this weekend. The Carbondale Run is a skate event unlike any other! It’s actually more of a road trip than anything else. Unfortunately, the sketchy reports coming back thus far are of rain all weekend, which could be a major bummer. Nonetheless, like any proper road trip, the experience is in the journey, not the destination. Check upcoming issues of Thrasher for coverage from the Carbondale Run.
Cross your fingers (but don’t hold your breath) that the Northwest doesn’t get any rain next weekend as most of the Carbondale Run crew will be heading out West from Colorado to Oregon for the Oregon Park Trifecta Bowl Series that will be happening this coming Friday through Sunday at the Lincoln City, West Linn, and Aumsville skateparks. This cool contest series should be a blast for any of you that can make it out to any of these stops and show your support for grassroots skate events like this one and the Carbondale Run.
