We here at éS Footwear would like to congratulate team riders Eric Koston and Rick McCrank for placing 7th and 8th place respectively in the Skateboard Street event at X Games 11 at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 4.
Sparkles impressed the nation's cable viewers with a big ol' switch frontal 360 over the ledge gap, and Cranks brought down the house when he suddenly stopped skating in the middle of his run and started playing with his life-sized Tech Deck (see photo at top). From the looks of it, Rick had a lot more fun than anyone. And isn't that what it's all about?
