Looks like the Map Masquerade guys had a blast in Las Vegas. Keep following it here on SLAP, asenseofdirection.org, and @MapMasquerade on Instagram for opportunities to find product, plane tickets, and watch great footage. And keep reading the forum for Jake Johnson's road updates.
Lots of team shake-ups this week. After Pontus Alv's inspiring "Goodbye Emerica" clip, he got himself a spot on Cons. Andrew Brophy is off Etnies and rumors suggest he is on Huf. Or is it Nike SB? Alex Olson on Nike SB looks pretty official with this recent Team Handsome-friendly ad. Jason Adams is off 1031 and on Mike V's Elephant Brand Skateboards. The extra space at 1031 has been filled by new am Matt Tomasello.
In video news, Baker has announced that they are releasing a new full-length video on Thrasher by the end of the year. There's a lot of solid skate footage in this week's episode of One in a Million. There's a new San Francisco Treat and New York Clip this week as well. And have you seen Grant's SOTY Australia tour video yet? Hoo boy.
It's Spring Break. Look at some baby animals and start your vacation on a good note.
