News From July 2002

Toy Machine.

Toy Machine is still in Europe and getting sheeit done. Right now Ed Templeton, Diego Bucchieri, Austin Stephens, Caswell Berry and Nate Broussard are in Barcelona, Spain on a film/photo trip with Mike Burnett and Dave Hoang. Burnett is shooting for a Thrasher article and Dave is filming for the up coming Toy Machine video. What! An up coming video! Holy crap!


The highlight of Europe has easily been none other than Caswell Berry. He placed 2nd place in Copenhagen, 1st place in Laussane and 4th place at Dortmund. The finest of the Tilt-mode army!


Billy Marks is out and about. Last I talked to him he was shooting photos for Skaterboarder and doing some filming. He says he has a couple things ready for the eye.


Josh Harmony is heading for back home status on a little trip back to his home town in Illinois. He plans on hanging tough with some of his long time friends and cohorts.


Toy Machine ‘new wave’ is in full effect! Look for the new new wave models to be in stores in about a week. Less surface is less friction is less work is lazy fat American skaters. Innovation is reinvigorating.

Caswell Berry takes first!!!!

Caswell Berry took first place at the Grand Prix contest this weekend in Laussane. I know you didn't expect anything less than the best. I do believe that the world cup is coming up real soon and I for one would like to see Caswell take it all the way. He can do it. Let's see, the next and last contest is in Dortmund this weekend. Caswell Berry, he's our man, if Caswell can't do it then no one can!


Look for Caswell's new pro board out really soon.
