Tom Penny has been working on the éS Penny 2 shoe remotely, all the way from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has also been relaxing ,as well--dividing his time between his girlfriend, his son and...well, you know, his board.
Rick McCrank has been a busy man recently. His Anti Social skate shop recently hosted an art show featuring the ads, artwork and photos of Stereo Skateboards, courtesy of Jason Lee, Chris Pastras and Clint Peterson.
