Whoa. Somehow, it’s almost gnarlier in photo form. Nyjah is gracing the cover of Transworld’s 2012 Buyer’s Guide in quite impressive form. I can’t remember the last time I smithed 2.4 stairs, let alone ten times that many. If you haven’t seen Nyjah’s RISE & SHINE part yet, do yourself a favor and treat yourself with an early present. Download it HERE.
While we’re on the subject of the TWS Buyer’s Guide and gift ideas, here’s a few for your rad Dad, best bud or yourself…
As rare as skateable pole jams are, you’d be a fool not to grab one of our DROP SPOT Pole Jams. They’re strong, portable and fun as hell.
If you’re hitting the town in your ratty old skate shoes, it’s time to step up your game with Element’s Emerald Footwear collection. They’re guaranteed to stink less than your skate kicks and attract 2000% more ladies.
A Travel Well cruiser board is just the tool for a quick run to the liquor store or taco shack. If you catch an urge to shred along the way, they’re more than capable of enduring whatever you can throw at it, as proven by Tim Tim’s Berrics Bangin! clip.
Elemental Awareness hit the road to visit their friends on the Apache, Flathead, and Navajo reservations, where they were able to skate with the kids, and connect on a larger level…
Through the CHANGING LIVES THROUGH SKATEBOARDING program, they were able to give away more than 100 pairs of shoes, 50 skateboards and tons of other product. Needless to say, the kids were hyped and received some much needed gear.
In “Crossing Canada” the Element team linked up with West49 for a series of demo’s and signings from sea to shining sea. Mark Appleyard, Nyjah Huston, Levi Brown, Nick Garcia, Julian Davidson, Evan Smith, and Boo Johnson put on a show at every stop.
“Kilsythe Rabbit Road”
The day after the screening at our Irvine headquarters, a viewing was held at The Berrics in Los Angeles, California.
The next evening, we celebrated the opening of our new Universal Citywalk store with a premiere. The crowd was massive and kids were hyped.
To correspond with the release of RISE & SHINE, Thrasher posted a Hall of Meat clip featuring one of the nastiest slams Nyjah endured during the filming for RISE & SHINE. It’s never good when you bounce on concrete. FYI: Nyjah got up and got the back smith.
Phew. Helluva week and helluva video part. Get yours HERE. Get stoked and go get some.
Congratulations to Element Australia team rider Deon Williams who was recently welcomed to the Theeve Trucks team! Yeah Deon! See his welcome video below:
