Eric Koston is back home in L.A., bringing down the major California baked hams and swinging the trusty old golf club with good friend Atiba Jeferson, who is well-known for his great photography. On a semi-related note, check out Eric in the Fourstar ad in the March 2006 issue of Slap.
Rick McCrank and éS flow rider Mike Barker stayed an extra week after the Global Assault contest in Australia to mellow out and do a little camping and life-sized Tech Decking. Rick then followed that up with a Harvey Spannos video premiere for good friends and family back up in Vancouver.
P.J. Ladd has been kicking it around Los Angeles with the Plan B guys and filming some more for the YéS! video.
Since his knee is feeling better and he's ready to skate, Justin Eldridge is super stoked that Scuba Steve is back in town from Australia so they can start clocking some serious footage. Rumor has it that Scuba filmed Rick, Rodrigo Tx., Javier Sarmiento and Mike every day down under for three weeks, so there should be no shortage of film to edit.
Cale Nuske spent some time with his éS teammates in Melbourne, then decided to go home to enjoy a little fishing with the ICCC in Adelaide for a spell. Cale will head over to the U.S. soon to get some last-minute footy for YéS! and tease all the American girls with his alluring Aussie accent.
Javier Sarmiento is back home in Spain, where he is busy perfecting his plan to take over Miami. Rodrigo, who is right by his side, is looking into buying a boat because he knows how much Javier loves them. Plus, that boat should come in pretty handy for transporting these two characters over to Miami for the big takeover. Just kidding. Rodrigo and Javi are both doing well and keeping a low profile while laying down some casual hammers.
éS flow rider Bobby Worrest has a two-page sequence on pages 20-21 in the April 2006 issue of Skateboarder, so be sure to peep that.
Nyjah Huston is back home in Davis, California, skating around with his dad and brother.
