All right, so it seems like yesterday I was covered in paint trying to get all the Crimson graphics done for the catalog. Oh wait, that was yesterday. Anyway it’s been a pretty rad month since our doors opened. Definitely a new learning experience for everyone involved. Things are looking up for Crimson. On a personal note—damn, it’s good to be skating again! Thanks to everyone for all your support. Bleed Skateboarding!—Kris Markovich
CRIMSON TEAM UPDATE
Between doing all the artwork for Crimson and editing the promo video Kris somehow found the time to be one of the contributing artists for the Keep a Breast Kings and Queens art show. The exhibit is the first ever 100 percent skateboarding Keep a Breast, uniting the most influential men and women in the industry to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Kris’s set up now includes Destructo trucks and Speed Metal bearings. He was in Canada with James and rest the Hurley crew for the West 49 contest. For those that didn’t know that Kris was hurt and recovering from knee surgery, don’t fret because he’s off the DL and dropping hammers as you read this.
While trying to shoot photos for his upcoming ad, James Atkin broke a couple of ribs from a battle with a 17-stair rail. Check out a healthier James in the latest issue of Automatic Magazine.
Ritchie Belton has been seen in Carlsbad since the demise of the Hellrose house, and can be seen on Lizard’s floor on occasion.
Danny Scher has been in Colorado for the last couple of weeks ripping and filming. Keep your eyes peeled for Danny’s interview in Concussion issue 30, and his Check out in the November Issue of TransWorld.
Rick Eusey has been on a mission skating his ass off and shooting an interview for Stuck Magazine. With winter approaching Rick and his lady are trading the bitter cold of Indiana for the warm confines of Tempe, Arizona. Rick will also be out in SoCal for GvR, October 21-22 in Lake Forest, California.
