Burnout: Downhill to Deathwish
Big day, big day. It all started in San Pedro for Beardo's big downhillin' festival.
I feel thirsty all of a sudden, for some reason.
Bring your cat, if you got one.
The thrill of gravity.
A flood of familiar faces.
Your ollie? Fuck yo ollie.
Radical embuttment and the downhilling press.
And over on the traditional course, a soty in the mix ...
Mr Harris himself!
Lil' multigenerational cat n mouse.
Just wait 'til the rest of his donut grows in, Mr Harris!
Let's say you're more of a fan of the street style ...
Got you covered!
Young Riley caught enough air for all of us.
Red oops a sweep.
Who's this masked rider?
Precision deck work.
Pounding the half of pipe!
'Yep, they're on skateboards alright. Investigation complete ...'
Wear an outfit, if you got one.
Local biz, representing.
Oh Iggy, will you ever win?
All said, a bizarre and awesome event.
And we were there!
Thirty minutes and $22 later ...
Borden plops with authority.
Header in the shallow.
He was fine. Just a light bonker.
Al Fakher grabbin' a piece.
Made in the shade, Trifewise.
'Just so you know, Delgado already did that line ...'
Hit it and quit it. It was hella glarey back there.
Decompressing at the La Quinta.
Out front. Anticipation aching like a full bladder on a long car ride.
The stars arrive.
Yes, Furby did kill it. Holy shit.
Kirby of the Shep Dawgs. The best.
Dee and Dickson
There he is.
The cute Hagers.
Jesus gave this to us.
Our Elsinore bros, lookin' sharp as usual.
'So what's your favorite type of pizza? '
Liz and the Shaman
Dan Rogers, always physical.
He seemed a little on edge. Just the jitters I reckon.
Elder statesman of the streets.
The O'Side OZ connection
More sotys. Wouldn't be the last.
Brian Hansen, damn glad to meet you.
Jehon's fade was there.
East Coast Pat!
Of where do I remember thee from ???
There it is.
Eric and Neen, ready to rage!
The Dickson family - proud as punch.
Squeezin' past the Lix
Former roommates. Which one had the worst sponsor? And don't just say Two Fish - 'cause that's the easiest!
The Mez and the Mehr, screaming for stoke.
Founding fathers of Drunk
J Bone and crew holding down the badge barge.
Greco and Lewandowski, partners in fisheye.
Legends of sheboardery
Even at this own premier he gets hassled. Jeezus!
Lensmen of East
Finally made it into the theater. Everybody remember Tony Da Silva?
Mullen sits, apparition-like.
A lil' Q&A with the Mutt, no big deal.
They really seem to enjoy each other's company.
Don't let that guy in the middle take his shirt off ...
Thanks and shout outs. Very gracious.
A then the special surprise ...
As social micro-media already told you, Dickson got turned pro. He seemed a tad overwhelmed.
Maybe even a little in denial.
Sooner or later he accepted his fate.
That's right. It's all yours.
It finally sunk in, I think.
Then Jake gave a special tribute to Jim and the video finally began. It really is a great one. Nice work, Deathwishers! Congrats, Jon! Thanks for letting me be a part of it, everybody!
2/21/2020Continuing their already impressive legacy, Emerica strikes gold again with Green. Dakota pushes his rail game to new limits and Dickson rips every set and bank to shreds like a rabid wolverine while the rest of the team fills out a killer montage. This is canon.
2/21/2020Before dropping his curtain-closing part in Green, the midwestern madman set the record straight about breaking his leg the first time skating, ice fishing in Illinois and roving scooter gangs taking over his hometown. Get up to speed with this extended interview by Taylor Kirby from our Feb 2020 issue.
2/20/2020Putting a video together is never easy, but a supportive squad always helps. Dakota, Jon, Tim and Miner feed off each other to finish another epic Emerican edit. As Dickson says, “It was exhilarating, to say the the least."
2/19/2020The Emerica team got dolled up in Long Beach to show off their new video, Green, along with a one-off all-gold Dickson. See who made it out in their cleanest flannel for the good times, good friends and great skating.
2/14/2020For centuries, the ancient art of seduction has involved romantic gifts. Some classics include roses, love letters, and crappy Photoshop JPEGS. Forget a fancy dinner for V-Day. Just send your loved one a screenshot of a card from this feature! Or don't. It doesn't really matter.
