Just say no to FUPA!
The highlight of Europe has easily been none other than Caswell Berry. He placed 2nd place in Copenhagen, 1st place in Laussane and 4th place at Dortmund. The finest of the Tilt-mode army!
Billy Marks is out and about. Last I talked to him he was shooting photos for Skaterboarder and doing some filming. He says he has a couple things ready for the eye.
Josh Harmony is heading for back home status on a little trip back to his home town in Illinois. He plans on hanging tough with some of his long time friends and cohorts.
Toy Machine ‘new wave’ is in full effect! Look for the new new wave models to be in stores in about a week. Less surface is less friction is less work is lazy fat American skaters. Innovation is reinvigorating.
The Foundation team is back from a 3 week Europe trip, which consisted of demos, in store shop appearances, shooting a Slap article along with 3 other European magazine articles and ripping the contests. See all the Chaos in an upcoming Slap Magazine.
Next on the summer Foundation agenda will be a month California Tour called the "MADNESS AND MAYHEM TOUR" which starts August 3rd. The guys will be going from shop to shop and town to town shredding demos and signing autographs. For more info and to find a shop near you or go to www.FOSKCO.com .
The Foundation Controlled Chaos in 411 is completed and will be out in issue 54. It will also appear with added footage on the DVD but to see it on the DVD you will have to find this hidden segment because there is going to be a so called Easter egg hunt.
411 Issue 52 just came out and you can see the glam boys in Panama and Peurto Rico having a good time site seeing and skateboarding.
I heard a rumor that he Foundation team is working on a top secret Christmas video that will be out early December just in time for all you kiddies out there to beg your parents for this perfect stocking stuffer.
The long awaited Ethan Fowler TWS interview is out so go to your local skate shop and check it!
Corey Duffel's Thrasher interview has just came out and is awesome! This kid rips! He's an Animal! Go check it out and you will see what I mean. Corey Duffel just finished up a part for the new Thrasher video, and a 411 Wheels of Fortune due out in the near future. Corey has also just shot a 20 questions in TWS that you can check out in the next Transworld.
Mike Rusczyk is back on his board shredding after a long time healing from knee surgery. Look out for mike and the rest of the team on the Madness and Mayhem tour in August.

While we're on the subject of Pine's busted ankle, I finally got the details on how it went down: While practicing for the "Legends" division at last months "V-Bowl" contest in Hermosa beach, Pine went into a high speed board slide. While coming out of this move, he knew he was not going to make it, and went into a knee slide. Apparently, his right leg didn't come around fast enough; his toe caught on that super sticky surface and BAM! ? busted ankle. Immediately, Bowman, Elguera and Hackett jumped into the bowl to check out the situation and assist, Germ and Tesnar showed up with hammers in hands after jumping down the scaffolds and knocking the hatch door open to help their bro out. While carrying Pine out of the escape hatch, Bowman and Hackett told Pine that it's was just a sprain ... "Yeah right!" Bowman took pictures of the ankle while Pine lay quietly saying nothing and cracking jokes. Pine awaits Germ and Tesnar at the hospital for 1 1/2 hours (where could they be? we all know ...sessioning a pool nearby- of course!) Arab shows up after going to multiple hospitals. The results; Clean break on the right fibula, Doc inserted a plate and seven screws, 1-week later ... took the splint off and removed staples, cruising around on crutches, back in action in 4 months, been seen scoping out the new pool at the Clairmont "Y" in San Diego. Secretly jotting down lines. Will probably carve the fuck out of it and board slide around the whole deep end. Pine has also been seen down at ACE Tattoo in OB working on his leg piece. Pine will soon be a free and single man again, due to a divorce... ladies, feel free to send pics and get well cards to firstname.lastname@example.org
