Happy New Year and welcome to the first Emerica Team Report of 2008! Since Team Manager Jetski wrote this report from the road down in Florida (where he's on a filming trip with the Young Emericans) and he doesn't have access to his photos, I thought I'd post a few older ones from X Games 13 last summer, and an STI Lab session in October 2006. Oh yeah, then there's that one of Braydon. Heh-heh.
Andrew Reynolds has been getting the new year off to a good start. He has already filmed a few amazing tricks for Stay Gold this month. Did you see Andrew’s backside heelflip in the Stay Gold Teaser #2? Damn!
Ed Templeton and Jetski in the STI Lab, October 2006.
Ed Templeton has been staying really busy lurking here on the new Emerica site. He posts something new on his page almost every day, so don’t miss out!
Heath Kirchart has been busy working on the Alien Workshop Mind Field video. He made a 20-hour trip out to Arizona to check out a spot he ended up not liking, then he had to schlep all the way back home to Hollywood!
Spanky shreds the mini-ramp in the STI Lab, October 2006.
Kevin "Spanky" Long is back onboard! His knee was hurt for a while, but after two minor knee surgeries and a lot of physical therapy, he's back on the shred sled. Kevin’s been out skating with Beagle and the Baker crew over the past week.
Bryan Herman chills on the Force Plate in the STI Lab, October 2006.
Bryan Herman scored the cover of the new TransWorld Skateboarding, which you will be seeing really soon. Herman has been filming a lot in Los Angeles.

Leo Romero has been staying busy fixing up his new house just the way he likes it. Whenever he gets a little time away from the Home Depot, he’s been shredding like crazy.
Jerry Hsu is another regular lurker here on the new Emerica site. He is commited to turning his page into The Best of YouTube. Check out the seriously insanely funny videos he posted. Jerry is a whiz when it comes to YouTube’s search engine. He has also been getting back on his board and working his ankle in. He’ll be filming in no time.
Braydon Szafranski enjoys some drunk huggies.
Braydon Szafranski is currently down under for the month of January. He has been filming and drinking with Dustin Dollin and having a good time, as always. Come to think of it, when isn’t Braydon having a good time?
Chris Senn is spending the week in San Francisco, hanging out with some bros and bombing hills. Senn Dog is thinking of making SF his home once again.
Aaron Suski has been spending some quality time with his daughter Sophia at home in Tucson, Arizona. Suski just had some shoulder surgery, which will bench him for a couple of months. Looks like he will finally get a break from being a world traveler.
Marquis Preston enjoys the handrail in the STI Lab, October 2006.
Brandon Westgate, Marquis Preston, Jamie Tancowny, Justin Figueroa and Emerica flow rider Collin Provost are out at Tampa Am. After the contest, the Young Emericans will be heading south to Miami, the land of topless beaches, and then do a demo at MIA Skatepark on Friday, January 25.
