We are proud to welcome original Stereo Pro, Carl Shipman, back to the team. He will be joining Jason Lee, Chris Pastras, Matt Rodriguez and Chris Miller on the Stereo Classics Division. Carl was an integral part in making Stereo what it is today and we are happy to see him back in action and ready to join the Agency once again. Look for Carl’s Stereo reissue board, which will be out within the next month in the Fall/Winter 08 catalog. Welcome back Agent WRK94!
What also went down this weekend was the Thrasher Magazine hosted, Bust Or Bail contest. It all happened at the Paul Revere School in San Francisco. There was 25 K on the line which included a first place 10 G's for the hottest sh*t busted down or on the rail of this massive 16 stair set. I wasn't there of course, but from the looks of the highlighted footage of the contest some burliness popped the f&*K off. Ryan Sheckler took an unexpected first place, as he's not known for his "real street" participation these days. Andrew Reynolds took second and some dude named Andrew Langi took third.
Hood Games/Town Park Project
Hood Games Fundraiser
The Hood Games, an organization dedicated to the building of an Oakland skatepark is well on its way to finishing the project. However, there's still much needed work and money to finish the park altogether. This Thursday, September 4th, a fundraiser will be happening at the Aiir Bar & Lounge from 6-9PM. If you're around, stop by, show your support of the well-worthy cause and help spread skateboarding throughout the Bay Area.
