There’s a lot going on this weekend for the Emerica team riders. On Saturday, July 28 at 1:00 p.m. Andrew Reynolds, Heath Kirchart, Jerry Hsu, Kevin "Spanky" Long, Austin Stephens and Marquis Preston will be doing a demo at Utility Boardshop in La Verne, California. On Sunday, July 29 at 3:00 p.m. Andrew, Braydon, Spanky and most of the Baker team will be cruising down to Sun Diego in El Cajon, California for another demo.
Andrew Reynolds has been skating around Los Angeles this week and breaking in the new house. You may have seen him at Home Depot or Bed, Bath and Beyond, but I’m not sure if he had enough time.
Heath Kirchart kept it real last week when, instead of leaving the Alien Workshop filming trip to Oregon early by plane, he opted to take the Greyhound home to save a few bucks. Heath said it was a complete nightmare and that he would never do it again. He seriously almost went crazy. I guess a 24-hour bus ride sitting next to some freaks will do that to you. Heath is back home in Los Angeles, skating and working on his motorcycle.
Ed Templeton, Leo Romero and Austin Stephens just returned home from the RVCA Canada Tour. You can check out the RVCA blog to see photos from the trip. Ed and Austin are only home for a few days and then head out to Europe this weekend for a Toy Machine tour. Leo will also be going back out on the road with RVCA for the Rockies Tour.
Jerry Hsu was skating around his hometown of San Jose this past week with Marquis Preston and Emerica filmer Jon Miner. Jerry is catching up on filming for the upcoming Emerica Stay Gold video.
Kevin “Spanky” Long is holding it down in Hollywood. He’s been doing some physical therapy for his knee, which he injured a few months back.
Bryan Herman will be at the WSR contest in Rotterdam, Holland this weekend. Yep, Herman's in Holland, which means he's going to have a good time!
Aaron Suski and Brandon Westgate will be in upstate New York this weekend for some Zoo York demos. Check out the Zoo York site for all of the info.
Braydon Szafranski will be doing an autograph signing this Saturday, July 28 at 1:00 p.m. at Active Ride Shop in Irvine, California with fellow Active teammate Paul Rodriguez.
Chris Senn has been skating and surfing in Hawaii and is about to go on a trip with Element teammate Tosh Townend next week.
