Welcome to the eighth edition of Emerica's ongoing Design-A-Tee contests, in which we empower you to create the best Emerica T-shirt graphic ever. You must enter Design-A-Tee 8 as soon as possible, though, as it officially closes on December 14, 2007. So, you better get crackin' and get creative!
Special note: Do not submit any entries containing the words "God Bless Emerica" or depict an American flag with Emerica Triangle logos in place of the stars. We get way too many of those, and they will be automatically disqualified. Don't waste your time!
After the contest ends, three winners will be chosen, each of whom will receive five shirts bearing their winning design, and three pairs of Emerica shoes. Note: Upon entering the contest, your artwork becomes the property of Emerica. The three winners' designs will be produced in a future Emerica apparel line, and the winners' only payment is the prizes listed above.
Calling all you Midwest Emericans! It's time once again to jump in your cars and roll across the prairies to Heath Kirchart's Subsect skate shop at 3705 86th Street, Urbandale, Iowa on Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 2 :00 p.m for a signing courtesy of the Emerica team: Andrew Reynolds, Heath Kirchart, Leo Romero, Bryan Herman, Braydon Szafranski, Marquis Preston and Brandon Westgate.
Then at 7:00 p.m., you will jump into your waiting vehicles once again to make your way over to Skate South skatepark at 1054 Country Line Road, Des Moines, Iowa, where you will enthusiastically observe a demo of pure skateboarding genius! Be there or be an ear of corn!
Look! Sophia can already make the Suski skate face!
We would like to congratulate Emerica pro Aaron Suski for becoming a father. On Friday, November 9, 2007, Sophia Annabella Suski was born in Tucson, Arizona. Way to go, Papa Suski!
If you're in the New York area this coming Friday, November 16, 2007 at 8:00 p.m., be sure to stop by to skate and donate at the Autumn Bowl Ramp Jam fundraiser at 73 West Street between Milton and Noble in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The bowl is at risk of being shut down because of financial challenges, so come on out to show some support!
Head on over to Active News to check out all of their words, photos and video of Emerica's demo at their Simi Valley store last Saturday, November 3, 2007. Thanks to Active for all of the props! Sweet stuff.
Look out for Emerica pro Leo Romero on RVCA's Mild Ride, a mini-tour in which the RVCA team will ride Vespa scooters from Costa Mesa to San Francisco, California with several stops in between.

Not even the scorching heat and desert winds could stop the Emerica team from descending upon Simi Valley, California.
It's that time once again to tune in to Epicly Later'd TV for the latest episode, number 12, of Emerica's Wild Ride 2007 featuring team rider Jerry Hsu getting hassled by old people for skating, and talking about his trick the Stormflip and getting invited to enter the X Games. Siiiiick! With no further ado, bring on the Hsu!
