Foundation Team update

Image Description Here Ethan Fowler has been in LA ever since the San Diego Foundation premiere. Most recently attending the Foundation party in LA at Clints warehouse. Showcasing his guitar skills. Corey Duffel just finished up a Slap interview and is working on a couple top secret video parts to follow Cataclysmic Abyss. Stay tuned for details. Gareth Stehr just flew up to Portland Oregon yesterday to meet up some Veece Clothing dudes. From Oregon they will go to Arizona. Wrapping up the trip on the 13th. Don Nguyen has been keeping busy after Cataclysmic Abyss. Helping set up the recent LA party. He's enjoying his time hanging out with his new dog Lucifer. Mike Rusczyk recently recovered from a injury and is now ready to get on the streets and skate. Recently moving to a new location Santa Rosa, California. Sierra Fellers got on the 13 hour flight to Australia yesterday. Arriving in Melbourne to shred the Globe Double Set contest. Matt Allen has also been recovering from a injury. Some dumbass ran his car into Matts about 2 weeks ago. Matt only suffered minor injurys and will be fully ripping asap. Angel Ramirez has been busy accomplishing the No Worries of the year award presented by Thrasher. Follwing that award he figured he should probably get out of Colorado for a bit and shred the gnar in California. Look for a Angel sighting soon. Tommy Gurrola is coming off his first video part. Shooting a couple photos here and there. Getting ready to go up to SF for a little week long trip. Abdias Rivera traveled up to LA to shoot some photos and film with fellow Pig Wheels rider Dyson Ramones. From there he will make his way up to Duffels to get gnar for a couple weeks.
