This is an update of the Emerican History timeline.
Emerica unleashes its long-awaited third video, Stay Gold, to universal acclaim, and the team embarks on a world tour of premieres in Hollywood (photos and video), Vancouver, Des Moines, New York, Paris, Vienna and Stuttgart. A deluxe edition leads the pack of related goods, including shoes from Emerica; decks from Baker, Toy Machine and Zoo York; wheels from Hubba and Satori; and bearings from Shake Junt.
The Emerica team scatters across the globe to go Wild in the Streets of Montreal (with Heath Kirchart, Brandon Westgate and Justin Figueroa), London (with Kevin Long, Braydon Szafranski and Aaron Suski), Madrid (with Leo Romero, Collin Provost and Marisa dal Santo) and Tampa (with Andrew Reynolds, Bryan Herman, Ed Templeton and Marquis Preston).
Right when Heath Kirchart announces his retirement and Emerica launches a tribute, Justin Figueroa and Jamie Tancowny
turn pro, and longtime flow rider Collin Provost officially joins the Emerica team.
Andrew Reynolds bangs out two epic mag covers, including issue 80 of The Skateboard Mag and the October issue of Thrasher. He completes interviews for Active and TransWorld Skateboarding, who also name him and Heath Kirchart as two of the 10 skaters who helped change the face of skateboarding over the last decade! Andrew, Braydon Szafranski and Jerry Hsu appear in the Skate 3 video game.
Heath Kirchart gets Chrome Balled. Ed Templeton assembles three big art shows, including his largest museum show to date, the Cemetary of Reason at the SMAK in Belgium, Drinking the Kool-Aid, also in Belgium, and The Seconds Pass at the Roberts and Tilton art gallery in Los Angeles. He then answers your questions at Active and shows you his house.
Kevin "Spanky" Long completes three interviews, one in issue 76 of The Skateboard Mag, another in the July issue of Thrasher and a third for TransWorld Skateboarding. He and Jerry Hsu host an art show called We Ain't Impressed in Shanghai, China. Bryan Herman gets down and dirty in a demolition derby.

Brandon Westgate is voted TransWorld Skateboarding’s Rookie of the Year, leaps onto the cover of the October issue of Skateboarder and answers your questions on CCS, who also offer up a Day in the Life. Then he pulls an interview with Push and offers up a tasty tour of his dad’s cranberry farm.
