Ryan Sheckler and Lauren Perkins smile for the camera at etnies’ Fall ’05 product launch party in NYC, while etnies’ Don Brown lurks in the background
On Monday, Elissa Steamer and Lauren Perkins returned from a whirlwind trip to New York City. They’d been there to participate in a couple photo shoots for various magazines, to attend etnies’ Fall 2005 product launch party, to do a couple of signings and a demo at two Bob’s Stores locations in New Jersey and Connecticut and, of course, to enjoy the city’s sights and sounds. Let’s just say that the girls did all of the above and more! Everything went off without a hitch—the weather was beautiful the entire weekend, the party was “off the chain” (to quote Elissa) and the signings and demo at Bob’s went off as well. Thanks to everyone who made the trip a huge success…the girls had a blast!

Elissa is chilling at home in San Francisco after the weeklong New York excursion. She’ll be hanging out and skating there until she leaves for a trip to Hawaii with her sister later this month. She won the trip, incidentally, by winning the Triple Crown contest series last week. Congrats, Elissa! Last we heard she’s bringing her sticks (golf clubs) with her. Lucky her…

Lauren is in Huntington Beach catching up on schoolwork. A week in New York will definitely make you fall behind. By now, though, she is probably completely caught up so she can get back to her normal routine of skating (at Volcom during the night), going to the beach and shopping. Lauren is leaving this weekend on a three-day trip to Mammoth since she loves snowboarding and this may be her last chance to ride this season. Also, be sure to check the latest issue of SG Magazine (June ’05 cover) for a six page article featuring Lauren in Mexico we told you about awhile back. Congratulations, Lauren!
