As you all know by now, the éS Game of SKATE Amateur Series is chugging right along across the United States, being greeted by good crowds all along the way and receiving a lot of great support from the shops.

Rick McCrank is spending some time with his daughter before heading out to London, England and Aberdeen, Scotland for two weeks with Mr. Joe Brook and some Zero boys to shoot some photos for Slap.
Rodrigo Tx. is still doing his thing with the Flip crew out in Spain, where he hooked up with fellow éS team rider Javier Sarmiento. Boy, has Tx. been on a mission lately.

Until then, scope Rodrigo's sweet semi-vintage back Smith on a ledge in the "Light of Day" article in issue 29 of The Skateboard Mag.
P.J. Ladd just got back from a Vancouver trip with the Plan B crew. They just hung out, skated and shot some ad photos.
