Scotty Cranmer came out to California this week to shoot a Panasonic commercial. I have seen a few TV commercials being filmed but this was crazy. He flew in Monday afternoon and shot some stuff down in the San Diego area. The plan was to hit some skateparks but the no bikes rule shut them down, the next thing you know and Scotty is tailwhippng over a dumpster using a shady piece of scrap wood as a ramp.
The next plan was to hit the Etnies skatepark of Lake Forest on Tuesday, Tuesday is not a bike day so the film crew made a donation to the City of Lake Forest and they let them film from 8:00am to 10:00am before they opened. There was 23 people working on the

Shred that place to pieces yo. Seek and destroy.
PRESS RELEASE â€“ SAN DIEGO, CA Big News from Avent/Bombshell, Awesome Trips, New Products, Donny Robinson Update, Upcoming Events, We have it all!
We have been really busy over here. Last weekend was awesome. Went to the DC Sprint Trails Event. Randy came home with the win, proving that Bombshell forks are the precision level fork for top pros. The way he was carving those turns, you would have thought it was Thanksgiving. Mike Day gave him a run for his money with the fastest qualifying time. No matter though Randy made it over the finish literally going over his bars in the final race to beat Day. It was a great event, thanks to Danny Meadows for taking care of the track and Dwayne over at DC for putting the event on and thanks to the Stumpfhauser's for letting them put the event on and all the hard work they put in. We'll be looking forward to next year.
You don't have to travel to Tasmania to ride 30 year old skateparks. Smaller budgets can bring you to Liege/Luttich/Luik. This Belgian city hosts a really old concrete snakerun. Inspired by the Burnside project in Portland, some people are looking into expanding the park. They're having a jam soon to collect some funds for cement bags. Here's all the 411 from Stephf:
Last year we organized two â€œconcrete workshopsâ€? at the snakerun of LiÃ¨ge (Belgium) with the Brusk crew. Young and old generation skaters and bmxers worked together in order to update the 30 years old skatepark!
It's been a busy month. Somehow there does not seem to be a slow time. Also in March we've kept the updates coming with the appreciated help from contributors worldwide. Without their help you would be stuck with what's going on in Helmond and Aarle-Rixtel and I can tell you, that's not enough for 3 updates a month!
