Straight off the Emerica So’Wester Tour in Canada, Emerica pros Heath Kirchart, Kevin "Spanky" Long, Bryan Herman and Austin Stephens are currently on the last leg of Heath’s Harley Tour, which is heading through Ohio right now. The guys all bought Harley-Davidson motorcycles in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where we started the tour.
There was a small demo at Torque Center in Milwaukee, and then it was off to Chicago, Illinois for a skate jam with Skate Shack at the Glen Ellyn Skatepark. In Indianapolis, Inidiana, Heath, Spanky, Bryan and Austin stopped by Rise Skateshop to say hello. Austin is from Indiana, so his family came out to say hello. We’re also hitting up Cincinnati, Ohio on the way out to Philadelphia, where Heath’s Harley Tour will end up at Emerica’s Wild in The Streets event on Go Skateboarding Day, June 21.
Speaking of Wild in the Streets, if you’re going to be anywhere in the Philly area on June 21, be sure to come join the Emerica team as we get Wild in the Streets of Philadelphia. Emerica pros Andrew Reynolds, Erik Ellington, Tosh Townend, Leo Romero and ams Matt Allen and Braydon Szafranski will be there, as well as the Harley vets: Heath, Spanky, Herman and Austin. June 21 is going to be an unforgettable day!
Emerica pro Ed Templeton injured his knee a few weeks back on a Toy Machine tour. He is waiting to get an MRI on it, so he will be off his board for a little while. In the meantime, Ed will be creating amazing art, as usual, and relaxing in front of the TV.
Emerica pro Tosh Townend is with the Element team on the Zumiez tour. If you’d like to meet Tosh in person, check out Element for the tour schedule.
Emerica pro Leo Romero is currently on a U.S. tour with Foundation. Check out Tum Yeto for the tour schedule. Also be on the lookout for TransWorld’s First Love video at your local skate shop. Leo scored the coveted "last part", and he also has the Curtains column in the August issue of Slap, with a gnarly double set gap to crooks. You’ll also be stoked on Herman’s interview in the same issue.
Emerica pro Aaron Suski is also on tour right now with Volcom, hitting up some demos around the U.S. Check out Volcom for the schedule.
This past weekend, Emerica pro Chris Senn followed up his recent Asian X Games victory with a nice 5th place showing at the Panasonic Open (part of the Dew Action Sports Tour) in Louisville, Kentucky. Congratulations, and way to go, Senn!
