A skateboarder named Mike Manzoori who we saw participating at the Lageja comps in the early nineties, wrote the etnies summer tour report. Man, that etnies RV is nice. I want one. Back to reality, snow on the streets, cold hands and security guards (words by Jamie Duncan and pics by Ricky Adam). Productivity 50 shows some new stuff. The Atiba bag looks great but we're down with Eastpak. 8 bikes make it in the Productivity section. Gotta keep them advertisers happy, even at DIG. Did you see Mientje and our mom rockin' at OJA in the FATBMX ad? Other people in the FATBMX ad are: Paul, Mike Cleveland, Dave to the rescue, Josh Harrington, White and V.d. Lee. Reader photos do make it in DIG so send them yours. The Backside boneless trick has got some history. Show your roots or learn an old school trick. There's more stuff to learn than tailwhip tailtaps. Bike Check with Matt Wakefield. Of course the etnies Backyard Jam can't fail in Dig and the "Til bone deth do us part" article is spot on. We saw footage of that jam and it was nuts. Jake Elliot gets a Low Profile (Bio kind of thing) and so does Canadian Brad Messinger. Backchat is with Edwin DelaRosa. I Dig it.
