Speaking of Herman, he is building the muscles up in his leg after getting out of his cast a couple of weeks ago. He has been riding exercise bikes and working his leg out so that he can get back on his board asap. Be sure to buy a pair of Bryan's brand-new pro model, the B.Herman, in skate shops now.
