Emerica completely dominates the The Skateboard Mag in 2007 with a Wild Life promo DVD and 12-page article in issue 35, an interview with Braydon Szafranski in issue 37, a cover and massive 12-page interview featuring Aaron Suski in issue 40, a Heath Kirchart cover in issue 41, and last but certainly not least, workhorse Leo Romero scores the cover of issue 44, plus a 10-page interview inside. Kevin “Spanky” Long holds his own with an interview in Thrasher.

Andrew Reynolds, four mag covers, 2007.

As if all of that isn't enough, Andrew Reynolds commands no less than four magazine covers throughout 2007, including a kickflip fakie on the cover of Concrete, a backside flip down Wallenburg on the cover of Thrasher, a back heel down the big five at Bercy on the cover of The Skateboard Mag and a lil' quarterpipe fun on the cover of French skate mag Sugar.
