All you SoCal art connie sewers better check out Emerica pro Ed Templeton’s latest show, the Fogged Mirror, which will be on display from January 7 to February 4, 2006 at Roberts & Tilton, 6150 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. It’s mostly paintin’s this time, and the opening is on January 7 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Wow, two hours. That’s plenty of time to hang out, chat with your friends and soak in all of the intricate details of the work.

Check out this photo of Dutch Emerica rider Rob Maatman standing in front of a Red Bull billboard featuring himself. The ad campaign consists of pics from the Red Bull GUTS (Grow Up To Skate) trip to Athens two months ago, and features five different pics of four different Dutch riders.
A bunch of these billboards were put up in nearly every train station in Holland. Since they have a great public transportation system there, many people take the train, so this is huge for skateboarding in Holland because it shows the public how and what most skaters really ride. No X Games, no Mega Ramp, just pure street skating. And scope the swank maroon Reynolds 3 shoes and the Defy t-shirt Rob is rocking. Way to go!
Here’s another interview with Emerica pro Leo Romero over at SGV. Don’t say we never gave you anything.
If you’ve never been there, you must visit Skateboarding Sucks, the official home of everything that is bad and wrong about skateboarding. Featuring kooky "innovative" skateboards and accessories made by stupid companies outside our industry, lame extreme sports marketing, non-stop opportunist pros and their cheesy endorsement shenanigans and so much more than you could ever imagine. This site rules.
All of us here at Emerica would like to wish a very Merry Christmas to you and all of your loved ones.
As all of you Emerica Disinformation Newsletter subscribers have officially known for a week, on January 1, 2006, team riders Erik Ellington and Tosh Townend will be leaving Emerica to pursue other opportunities. Over the years, these two have helped in a big way to make Emerica the well-oiled skate machine it is today.
We would like to wish both Erik and Tosh all the best with their future efforts. Never fear, skate addicts, because Emerica has some brand-new and highly anticipated pro model shoes coming from team riders Bryan Herman and Leo Romero, as well as a nifty flashback item from the Boss that will keep the radness rolling in 2006!
Check out a recent online interview with Emerica pro Leo Romero at Skateboarder. There’s some sick photos in there.
