China is a lucky place for Tulio as he always seems to podium when he competes in the Kia Extreme Games. This year he is taking home the bronze medal in the street contest. Team Airwalk is racking up the medals!
Andy Macdonald took the top spot on the podium after an amazing showing at the mini mega contest. He also landed 3rd place in the vert contest. Sounds like he had quite the trip out to Shanghai. Way to go Andy!
Already Famous Crew member Carlo Carezzano hit up the Damn AM Los Angeles competition this past weekend. More than 140 riders participated in the event. Although he didnâ€™t make the cut to the semis, Carlo placed above half the competition. He was also the only rider from a third world country. â€śFor my first competition against all these kids from Cali and Florida, Iâ€™m ok with how I skated,â€ť Carlo says. â€śI just gotta keep at it.â€ť For a recap of the contest and to check out a little press on Carlo, click here. After the contest ended Carlo did a little schmoozing within the local skate scene and captured some street footy with LA videographer Vern Laird. Tuesday morning he got to skate a quick session at the Berrics. Check out the pics.
The Already Famous Crew piled into a team van and headed to Philadelphia for the Philly AM contest.
The BEST part about the contest was traveling and skating with the homies. Once we got there and the sponsored part of the contest began, the crew noticed immediately that the purpose of the contest was more about showcasing the locals. Sadly, it wasn’t about rewarding genuine effort and talent and whomever did the best that day. Realizing what was up actually took a lot of pressure off the group and we were able to just shrug it off and have fun. All in all we made the best of it and had a blast. Would we do it again if we didn’t have to? Probably not.
