Emerica pros Kevin “Spanky” Long, Leo Romero and am Brandon Westgate, who just returned home this week from Turkey and Italy, are currently busy recovering from jet lag. The Turkey and Emeritalia Tours were super productive and everyone had fun. Skateboarder magazine photographer Brian Gaberman shot plenty of photos on the trip and the article is going to be amazing! Emerica filmer Jon Miner and Team Manager Hal 3000 filmed everything that went down. Euro Emerica riders Stefan Sperka, Ricardo Fonseca and Patrick Streiter joined the crew in Turkey. All in all, the Emeritalia tour went great despite a couple of rained-out demos.
Emerica pros Ed Templeton and Austin Stephens returned home today from the Toy Machine Kick In The Teeth Tour, which covered the East Coast over the past couple of weeks. I’m sure some good photos and stories will come out of that trip.
The second annual GvR contest took place over the weekend at the Skatepark of Lake Forest, and Emerica pro Bryan Herman was there to represent Emerica and rip it up for the Regular team.

Emerica pro Tosh Townend just returned home from Barcelona, where he stayed to skate with some friends after the Element tour ended there earlier this month. Tosh almost got jumped while walking to the hotel from a bar, but he was able to scare off the thiefs. Don’t mess with Tosh!
