Emerica's "Green" Premiere Photos


Emerica fired up 2020 going full speed with their latest video installment, Green, which premiered this past Thursday in Long Beach. The night's event included heavy parts from Dakota Servold, Jon Dickson, a stacked team section and the release of the Dickson pro. Emerica proved they have no plans of slowing down going into the new decade. Not to mention, they brought back masterlensman Jon Miner to put the whole thing together, so you don’t want to miss this one. See who made it out and to celebrate some of the hardest working dudes out.
