The totally gnarly and X-treme X-Games just ended this past weekend, bro! Andrew Reynolds, Bryan Herman and Leo Romero skated in the qualifier on Thursday at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles. Drew shredded all the way to the Skateboard Street Men's Finals on Friday and drove home with a bronze medal draped around his neck. Congrats, Drew!
Heath Kirchart lives in Hollywood now, where it’s inevitable to get in the “business.” Check out Heath’s writing and acting credits. It’s quite an impressive list! When Heath isn’t swingin’ deals and doing lunch in Hollywood, he has been schralping around the city and lurking at the Emerica Mansion II.
Ed Templeton is still working on his Toy Machine Suffer the Joy video part as we speak.
Kevin “Spanky” Long celebrated his 22nd birthday this past weekend at a shack his dad owns down on the beach in Baja California, Mexico. Along with Jon Miner, Justin Regan and other friends, Spanky soaked up some sun, drank some margaritas and had a nice, relaxing time. Happy birthday, Spanky!
Austin Stephens has been skating around Long Beach and Los Angeles with the Toy Machine team. They are getting ready to embark on Thrasher’s King of the Road Contest this Weekend. Ed, Austin and crew will be driving cross-country on a wild goose chase. It’s going to be awesome!
Chris Senn and Aaron Suski were up in Mammoth, California last weekend to skate in the Volcom Meadows contest at the skatepark up there. Senn broke his hand right before flying out for it, but skated anyway and ended up in 6th place. Right on, Senn Dog! Emerica flow rider Colin Provost was also up at that contest and pulled up in 10th place. Sweet tranny skills from those two!
Aaron Suski will be heading off to New York this week to skate with the Zoo York team.
Braydon Szafranski is still healing from a foot injury from a little while back. That’s not going to stop him from going on Thrasher’s King of the Road Tour with Baker. Braydon is so stoked about the KOTR, and so are Andrew, Leo, Herman, and Jim Greco, who will also be in the van for the Baker team. That’s going to be one amazing trip!
