Hey, Texicans! Emerica is sponsoring a balls-out, epic rockfest happening during this year’s annual South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. Join the underground this coming Saturday, March 19 at the Terrible 1 ramp in Austin (next to legendary rock club, Emo’s)...if you dare to endure the onslaught of the non-stop pummelhammer, that is.
Dead Meadow, Oxes, Big Bear, Early Man, Wives, Coachwhips, Wires on Fire, and Blackfire Revelation will be playing.
You won’t see ANY of these bands on MTV ever! For that reason alone, Emerica supports them. So should you. This show is ALL AGES and FREE to anybody who shows up wearing an Emerica T-shirt. Also, enjoy some FREE BEER from Red Stripe with a valid ID! This show is gonna kick so much ASS!
Here’s the address: 1809 E. Sixth ST, Austin, Texas. See y’all there!
You asked Ed the questions, and he has responded! We just posted in the More section the fourth in a series of emericaskate.com Member’s Only interviews.
After poring over the hundreds of questions you Kids asked him, Emerica pro Ed Templeton narrowed them down to (a still sizable) 50 and spent a good amount of time coming up with some long-ass, insightful answers. Thanks to all you Kids who participated. Stay tuned, future installments of emericaskate.com Member’s Only interviews are in the works. Enjoy!

The first word that comes to mind after watching Dyson Ramones’ video is "Damn!" This kid rips! From the beginning of the video, with a flawless Cab down a nine stair, ’til the line at the end with a couple of big stair sets, and all the tricks in between, this video is packed full of stylish skating. One of the tricks that stands out is the backside 360 Ollie down an eight set. Dyson has really got that trick down. If you were at Tampa Am, you may have seen him throw down a backside 360 Ollie over the Euro gap and bank. Amazing. There is a really good variety of obstacles and tricks in this video. The whole thing was filmed in Hawaii, and I have never seen any of those spots before, so it was definitely refreshing. Who likes to see the same old famous spots all the time? Not me. I like a change in scenery every now and then. Rumor has it that Dyson it getting flowed boards from Stereo, and is also sponsored by Hurley. After seeing this video, we put him on Emerica flow, as well. He has just relocated to San Francisco, California and loves it. People are really starting to take notice of this kid, which means you’ll be seeing him in the mags and various videos really soon. Nice one, Dyson! —Jeff Henderson
