Milestones are a rare achievement, most people either give up before they obtain their ultimate goal or fail at the pursuit of it. Recently, Rodrigo reached a key milestone of being a major player on the éS team for the last 10 years, so obviously TX is not mixed into this realm of an average person. After just completing a two-song ender in L-R-G’s first full-length video Give Me My Money Chico, Rodrigo finds himself in Brazil back on the road to recovery from a recent knee surgery he had to fix past issues. We were able to catch Rodrigo at home and ask him about his ten years with éS, skateboarding and his reaction to a new website éS is launching in the near future on the history of the brand on the anniversary of 5/19/2010.
1. Ten years with éS, man did that seem to fly by! Do you have a story of how you got on the éS team?
Man, ten years I must be getting old…hahaha. Basically, I went to the European contest in 1999 when I was 15 then and I skated all the contests and after winning the last one, which was in Prague. Some skaters hit me up, team managers and I also got invited to skate a contest in NYC.
While I was in Brazil I talked to Bob on the phone a few times and he really wanted me to get on The Firm and éS as well, so I went to the NYC contest and after that to San Diego for a week to stay with Bob, he took me to éS, so he’s the one that got me here, thanks Bob!!!
George C. Moreno is a flow skater for éS that Scuba has hooked up for a bit. Check out his interview on the Transworld Skateboarding website and the video is below.
Rattray plays a classic role of a news anchor in this classic trailer for EA Skate 3 Releasing next month.
Just some warm-ups for you....wait...what?
Matt Price, Ben Raemers and friends took a trip to the beach recently and I made a edit about the trip! Party time!
Cliché set up a Tumbler page for their blog recently and it's filled with a lot of awesome things from the past and present. We just ran across this buttery image of éS pro, Cale Nuske from a 2001. Check out the steez on that frontside feeble grind.
