    • Back in June the whole crew went on a good old fashioned demo tour across the US to hype up the Pretty Sweet video. You can read a real article about it in the new Thrasher that's out now, and there's gonna be a bunch of video episodes on their site. Here's a bunch of photos that weren't in the article. This is our posse when we set sail. Not too shabby.

  • House Meeting!
    • 1_cory_filming

      A couple of weeks ago we had a meeting at Cory and Elijah’s house to talk about a top secret video project. When we got there Cory was already filming. That has to be a good sign.

    • 2_waiting_phones

      Aside from the Trunks we had a heavy managerial presence on hand. (Making high powered phone deals no doubt.)

  • The Trunks Go Pro

    They’re in the videos. They tour the world. They sit in the back. They piss in bottles. And now they’re professional skaters. Shit, they might even start calling shotgun.

  • Pro Tears
