coverage. The crew that he was with ended up getting kicked out of everywhere
they tried to skate. By the end of the trip, they all went to some skatepark
to try to have some fun, where they ended up getting tickets for not wearing
pads at the park. Have a nice weekend!
· Zered Basset is still on tour with Zoo York. Hes in New
York right now, headed for home in Massachusetts. At the end of the month,
Zered goes to Japan with Zoo York. This kid is gnarly-why stay home when

Beware of Tony Silva: hes amped and hungry to come-out.
