Congratulations to Rick McCrank for placing fifth at Tampa Pro last weekend. When Rick's not killing the contests, he's been spending time surfing at Vancouver Island. All we have to say to that is, â€œGet barreled, bro! Surf water, not the Web!â€ Be sure to check out Rick’s pivot to fakie in issue 36 of The Skateboard Mag and his two-page Matix ad in issue 38.
Rodrigo Tx. has been very busy filming for the upcoming éS and Flip videos. He recently stopped by the éS offices to grab some kicks before he heads back to Spain, where the pain falls mainly on the sprain!
P.J. Ladd was in San Francisco last week to help raise money for fellow Plan B team rider Pat Duffy, who is facing some whopping medical expenses after slamming big-time on the Mega Ramp. Be sure to peep P.J. in a Fourstar ad in the February 2007 issue of Thrasher and his Venture limited-edition pro truck ad in the April 2007 issue of that mag.
Justin Eldridge and his entourage have been holding it down in Santa Clarita, skating all throughout the 661. If you see Justin, ask him if you can join in the bi-weekly games of spin-the-bottle going down in his living room! If you can't make it, don't worry, you can always swoon over his Chocolate ad in the April 2007 issue of Thrasher.
Nyjah Huston is now back home in Davis, California after a couple of weeks of destruction in SoCal. This hardworking little man is about to head down to Puerto Rico again to film and relax. For recent coverage, check Ny's kick back lip in the GvR article in issue 36 of The Skateboard Mag, the backside ollie big spin out in the "Land of Confusion" Element Puerto Rico tour article in the April 2007 issue of TransWorld, and the front board kickflip out in the May 2007 issue of that mag.
Bobby E. Worrest has been keeping it real lately out on the East Coast, skating with éS flow rider Jimmy McDonald. Bobby is getting ready to head out West for a couple of weeks of thrills and excitement. Be on the lookout for him at your local In-N-Out Burger, cuz you know Bobby's always got that In-N-Out urge!
Silas Baxter-Neal was in Los Angeles last week filming for the éS video and enjoying some well-deserved time off golfing with Atiba Jefferson. Fore! He also just planted a garden consisting of basil, broccoli, carrots, rosemary, sage and strawberries. Check out that sweet lien to tail from Silas in the Foto section of the February 2007 issue of Slap.
Danny Garcia has been laying low in the OC, recovering from a complimentary hipper he received from some mean old ground last weekend. He recently stopped by our offices to get a haircut from éS Team Assistant, Erin. Looks like her job description is really expanding.
Raymond Molinar, known to many as The Loco, has been killin' the game! He's been a busy man as of late, skating, taking tons of Polaroids, playing his new guitar and just trying to get by.
