Team Report 03-28-06

Posted March 28, 2006 by éS

We'd like to start this week's Team Report off with something a little different...a behind-the-scenes photo of a secret photo shoot that's actually so top secret, even we don't know what it's all about. Don't keep an eye on this column for more details, cuz there probably won't be any.

Eric Koston has been golfing, skating Atiba's mini-ramp, filming and shooting photos.

Rick McCrank is spending some time in San Francisco, skating the Deluxe warehouse and visiting friends. All you Canadian heads better check Rick's "Killing Time" article in the latest issue of SBC Magazine.

Rodrigo Tx. and the rest of the Flip team have been in kicking it at Geoff Rowley's house in Arizona, where former éS team rider Bob Burnquist skated off a vert ramp / rail contraption straight into a parachute jump into the Grand Canyon. I'm going to have to say right here and now that Bob is simply bodacious!

P.J. Ladd is back home in Los Angeles after spending some time in Hawaii with the Plan B guys. He paid a visit to the éS offices today to talk a little shop and go over some future colorways of his brand-new éS pro shoe. Have you bought a pair yet? I must say they are by far the grippiest shoes I've ever skated.

Justin Eldridge has been visiting the éS offices a lot lately, too, working closely with our footwear and apparel designers on some future products, as well as hitting up the new éS training facility. Look for a full exposé on that here on the éS site soon.

Cale Nuske and éS flow riders Bobby Worrest and Mike Barker have all been skating around with filmer Scuba Steve up in Los Angeles, as well as wrapping things up for the éS video with Mike Manzoori. Look for it sometime later this Summer.

Javier Sarmiento is still hanging out at home in Vittoria, Spain, enjoying his newfound love for rapper Cormega in between skate sessions.

Nyjah Huston and his family have been on a little vacation down in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I wonder how they managed to get that big RV of theirs down there?

  13. Bob Burnquist is a sellout just like P. Rod. They both quit 'es for damn Hurly and Nike SB, those companies aren't even down with skateboarding, think about it, one's a jock company and one's and surfing company, but 'es is only skateboarding, thats why they make such awesome skate shoes.

  14. nike is cool

    landardini Posted: 9 years ago
  15. Ahh golfing. Who is the better golfer, Kos or Atiba? I've seen Atiba practicing his swing in Baker 3 and it looks pretty intimidating.

    taekwondave Posted: 9 years ago
  16. Koston will be sponsored by nike golfing ???

    ToNyXeS Posted: 9 years ago
  17. Wes H. - Bob aint a sellout man!!! I dont know why he left éS, but I like him. Why Bob dont have a shoe sponsor? Those hurley he rides is shameless. I agree about nike(sux a lot) and hurley, (put on the same thrash can, billabong, quicksilver, reef, volcon, even globe) non skateboard related companies that just came to the biz cause the another sktbrd boom later years. I remember an old interview with Ken Block saying that his company was only sktbrd 4 life, no surf, no bmx(cant find the link anymore)...nowadays even rally they r involved. Man, business sucks, so GO SKATEBOARD!! Let the biz for them!
    - - - - - - - -
    landardini - prob u r so young and was on diapers when nike came to sktbrd late 90's and... go get info about...

  18. Nice team report but whats Silas up to?

    WelcometoHell Posted: 9 years ago
  19. ^^ Yeah! Silas is tight!

    taekwondave Posted: 9 years ago
  20. Silas is on.
    I betcha that secret photoshoot thing will be filmed for the intro of YéS cuz a little while ago, in a team report, they said the team was filming the intro so maybe this is it huh ... kinda like in that nike promo vid - on tap.

    dan Posted: 9 years ago
  21. Woooo..
    Nike is down for skateboarding man

    skatedaily Posted: 9 years ago
  22. I'm with Wes H. about Nike. NIKE IS FOR JOCKS!!!Why do they make skateboarding footwear anyway? Don't they like own DC now or something? But, anyway, nice update.

    Chase Posted: 9 years ago
  23. i dont know why so many kids have such harsh opinions, sure nike is some jock company, but they make rad shoes and have a rad team at that, (niether shoes or riders as good as es though). Oh, another thing, eS should rip off those SB hightops, pretty sick, but the Koston high tops are better anyways.

    NOMXPXFX Posted: 9 years ago
  24. hows nuske part in bon appetit guys should i scoop it?

    PJ and Eldridge are the shyut !

    im sorry but u guys have no clue how hard it is for these guys to try not to sellout, and p rod cant be a sellout when even koston says hes not gettin what he deserves from nike, if he was a sellout he wouldnt be doing wat he is, he loves what he does and maybe we should leave the usiness side for business and enjoy skateboarding

    jaxterx10 Posted: 9 years ago
  25. If you want an awesome video part..
    Bobby Warrest....Kronichles..
    But good luck finding it..untill it comes out..

    skatedaily Posted: 9 years ago
  26. OK if you were offered a shit load of money wouldn't you trade teams? Hell yeah he would take all the money. I mean P-Rod is from the Ghetto East L.A. Well he isn't from the ghetto anymore cuz his dad a comedian and him probably making more money than his dad. I have Respect for Paul And always will. Keep skating.

    Bestskater Posted: 9 years ago

  30. Chase- nike dunks are pretty cool

    Plan B_09 Posted: 9 years ago
  31. Thanks for the update!

    And i can't wait to see Eldridges shoe!

    BURRITO Posted: 9 years ago
  32. Yeah man, Hurley is actually owned by Nike, lol. They bought it like 3 years ago, I read it in the paper. Kinda like Adidas owns Reebok but they still operate as seperate companies. IN FACT! Here's a passage from
    "Sole Technology, Inc. is an American footwear company, specializing in skateboarding shoe production and distribution.
    They currently own the etnies, etnies Girl, éS and Emerica skate shoe brands, as well as ThirtyTwo boots, a snowboard boot line.
    Sole Technology has also developed the Sole Technology Institute, dedicated to skate shoe research."
    Some fat cat out there has a monopoly on the skating industry!

  35. when the hell is the plan B vidoe commin out. it gonna be sick wit p.j, stanton, and all those other crazy mofos

    nickpeppe7 Posted: 9 years ago
  36. ok, so es says yes will come out in the summer. ill belive that when i see it. they said it was gonna come out during fall of 2005. anyway, the pj ladd shoes are kinda gay other than the sole. i have a pair. the es ads are right, they are the grippiest shoes. they need to put that soleon a re issued version of the k3 with G2. then that will be great.

    tom penny rocks Posted: 9 years ago
  37. nickpeppe7, the plan b vid drops in fall of 2007. seems far away tho.

    tom penny rocks Posted: 9 years ago
