has been home for a couple of weeks from the Sprite tour, where he has been enjoying quality time and working on the Samurai video. He also rode a dirt bowl (complete with spine ramp and bowl corners) that some kid built in his backyard out in the 909.
Mike will be heading out to Vegas this coming week to attend Interbike and hang-out at the NORA Cup awards ceremony, where he is up for Street Rider of the Year with four other guys. He will also be filming a music video out there.

Joe also has a friend, Andreas, from Greece, who has been staying with him for the past week hanging-out in Austin and riding. Joe has been getting ready for Interbike, too, which is always a task, and plans on hitting some spots on the way out there.
and Garrett Byrnes
are out in New Jersey, hanging-out enjoying some time in one location for a while. Both have been enjoying some surfing, as well as some skating. Over the weekend, the guys built a huge hip near Garretts dadҒs work and they were blasting nine foot airs off of it.
was out in Oklahoma for a friends wedding. He had planned on going to Appleton, Wisconsin to build ramps at etnies teammate Dave FreimuthҒs local park, Area 51, but the people running the joint hadnt signed the lease yet, so Nate had to bail on that plan and headed back out to Woodward, where he is getting some riding in for the Baco Designs video. Nate also pulled a move that had previously taken him out, a 360 wall ride to backward manual down a bank.
is chilling at home. His wrist is getting better and the doctor has cleared him not to get surgery, which Edwin is stoked about. He does have to get a bone growth stimulator to help it heal faster, though. He is still riding against doctorҒs orders.
has been spending time outdoors doing chores around the house--seeing as how the weather up in Appleton has been pretty nice for the season. Aside from chores, he has been riding some of the local parks and working on the next Baco video, Baco 10. Dave has also been working with good friend Chad Degroot on a video premiere tour, where they will go to parks around the Midwest premiering the video when it comes out.
has been working hard on getting his new place up to shape for his big move at the end of the month. Jasons boss, Brian Castillo, is in town working on getting the next Volume video done.
Jason took it hard to the head while filming on a rail, got seven stitches and is basically sore all over from the hectic filming schedule. The plan was to get a whole section filmed in one day, but due to the crash, that plan got derailed for Jason.
flew out to the Los Angeles area this past week from Pennsylvania, where he will be hanging ґtil he leaves for the etnies Backyard Jam at the end of the month. While here, he has been hanging with his family and enjoying riding with his friends that he doesnt get to see too much. Josh put a new bike together--if you had seen the previous one, you would understand why. Josh has also been filming for the next SandM video, due out soon.
