Leo Romero is getting a Raw Talent in the January issue of Strength. Leo will be getting a last part in the new Pharmacy video due out this spring along with friends Matt Allen, Spanky, and Brian Herman. Rumor is that Leo will also be getting the cover. Right on Leo! Plus you can expect Leo to enter the Tampa AM. If does half as well as he did at the Coup Detat San Dieguito handrail challenge he may just be a contender in Tampa.
Watch out for Leo Romero and Gareth Stehr in the upcoming AM issue in TWS.
Gareth Stehr is leaving this country and going back home to New Zealand for the holidays. I asked if he celebrated Thanksgiving and he said "Dude, the pilgrims didn't wash ashore in New Zealand." Which started to make sense, we are all pilgrims! Apparently the common wealth of NZ does celebrate Christmas so off he's going to get lots of presents and will probably be doing some skateboarding aswell.
Daniel Shimizu is working on a Slap interview and has being busy shooting shots with shooters. Plus I'm hearing that Daniel is getting a cohorts in Skateboarder with roommate Justin Roy.
Mike Rusczyk was on a little holiday here in SD and everyday got some killer footage, he also shot some photos for TWS the other night and a sequence for BIG Brother - God dam Am's! Plus he is working on an interview for Strength.
OMG! Jon West has a scary cover on the new TWS Biz mag. It's really scary, its got Jon and he's like front boarding a fence in a graveyard and....just go look at it.
The Madness and Mayhem tour video is kicking ass and taking names. It's a perfect stocking stuffer for everyone! Be sure to ask your mom, uuuuh I mean Santa for one. The Madness and Mayhem video will be coming out on DVD shortly with some great bonus material. It's a must see.
