Andrew Reynolds was out in Arizona on an Emerica trip with Leo Romero, Matt Allen and Emerica flow riders Colin Provost and Lionel Rocha last week. He flew home early from Phoenix to spend Easter with his family up in Lake Arrowhead, California.
Andrew is stoked that he left the Arizona trip early, as we are currently stuck in the small, middle-of-nowhere town of Blythe, California (on the Arizona border), where our van has called it quits on us. We've had a bit of a bad luck streak on this trip. Besides getting stranded in the desert, Leo and Matt got the privilege of seeing the inside of the Scottsdale, Arizona city jail after we got busted at a marble hubba spot a few nights back. Leo and Matt were the only ones who got arrested, because they were skating the hubba. The cops made us sit on a curb for two hours while they “investigated” the situation. It was so lame.
Heath Kirchart has been skating around SoCal with Alien Workshop filmer Greg Hunt. He has also been keeping busy with his Subsect skate shop in Des Moines, Iowa.
Kevin Long returned home from New York on Friday, where he kicked it with some friends and skated a bit, as well.
Bryan Herman has been setting up everything at his new home in Victorville, California. He has also been skating a bit, getting a lot of his flatground tricks back, and even learned a couple on new ones. Bryan threw together a sweet Easter egg hunt for some kids in Victorville on Sunday. He got a bunch of plastic eggs and stuck pieces of paper in each one with different prizes written on them. Some of the prizes included Emerica footwear, Baker decks, Spitfire wheels, T- shirts, and some even had cash in them. Those kids were stoked, for sure! Isn’t Bryan a nice guy?
