Capital building in Austin, Texas.
Justin Eldridge, Silas Baxter-Neal, Bobby Worrest, Danny Garcia and Raymond Molinar just got back from a filming trip throughout Texas. The first stop was Houston, the fourth biggest city in America. Things went well in H-town, though it was unseasonably cold for this time of the year. We then moved along to the capital of Texas, Austin, where we were greeted with cold again.
"I've always fantasized about handcuffs, but not like this!"
We skated some ditches and other interesting spots throughout Austin then headed further south to visit the Alamo. Remember the Alamo? We do now. The weather seemed to warm up a bit and so did the skating. San Antonio was a bit rough to skate, but the guys managed to get through it and skate every day and night regardless. Special thanks to Tech Gnar skate shop, Carter in Austin, Joe Castrucci, Guru Khalsa, and Zach and John in San Antonio for showing us around. Keep on the lookout for some extra footage from this trip to hit the Web soon!
Rick McCrank is still down under, filming for YéS! with Jon Miner. The last we heard, Rick has been bagging some amazing footy on his life-sized Tech Deck (also known as a skateboard).
Rodrigo Tx. is in the midst of traveling. He was in Barcelona for a while and is currently back in Brazil, getting ready to come terrorize the States!
P.J. Ladd has been keeping it top secret, shooting for the upcoming éS video with his personal filmer.
Bobby, Justin and Raymond enjoy a lil' din-din.
Justin Eldridge has been busy filming, too. He got a lot of footage in Texas, and has a few things up his sleeve to handle in Los Angeles. All you LA heads better keep on the lookout for Justin bustin' at a spot near you!
Cale Nuske is still in Australia conditioning his knee so he can finish his part for the upcoming éS video. He has been recovering very fast and can't wait to get back on that board.
Javier Sarmiento is still chillin' in Spain, where the rain falls mainly on the plain. He has been filming and shooting photos for some upcoming interviews.
Our little workhorse Nyjah Huston stopped by the éS offices recently to bag up some gear before heading to Los Angeles to do a little skating. Now he's back up in NorCal enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation.
Tastes like chicken.
Bobby Worrest recently flagged down a Girl Scout van to get his fix of Samoas, which are his favorite cookies. Besides that, he just headed up to San Francisco to work on his tattoos and get his skate on.
Nyjah Huston, I mean downtown Houston, a swan and Silas.
Silas Baxter-Neal got some amazing footage during our Texas trip and is now back in the San Jose area, skating the Sunnyvale skatepark and working on an interview for TransWorld Skateboarding.
Danny enjoys a lil' Smith pole action.
Danny Garcia has been staying busy and trying not lose his mind as he continues to whittle away at two video parts simultaneously. Danny also finished recording his album, which will hopefully be available in the iTunes store soon!
Raymond Molinar just purchased a new axe. I saw a photo, and it looks pretty sweet. Tune in to the next Team Report to find out if it's an actual axe, or a fancy guitar. He has also been shredding on his skateboard, as well. The next time you guys see Raymond, tell him where he can get a good bowl of pho, because he will really appreciate it. No, pho is not another name for marijuana, it's a Vietnamese noodle soup.
As for the flow guys, Kelly Hart was recently in Arizona with the Expedition team and is now comfortable at home in Laguna. Mike Barker has been enjoying spending time in Los Angeles, skating around downtown and filming for the Element video.
