Foundation Foundation News...

Team Happenings

Corey Duffel is a busy man. After already logging China, Europe, and Colorado in the past couple of months he is now appearing in Houston, TX with Gareth and the Nuge for demos and autograph signings. Pipeline and Stoked skate shop are hosting on the 5th and 6th of August.

Don Nguyen cannot be stopped. Just joining the Foundation team recently he has proven himself to be very worthy. A skateboarder magazine online interview, a 411vm 14-3 part, and a 6-page Skateboarder #30 article all in the past month! Be on the look out for this guys first ever Foundation Pro Model and Pig Wheel.

Gareth Stehr is going on a sober rampage. Not allowing himself to drink until the video drops. This means very productive skateboarding from this man.

Mike Rusczyk has joined fellow Pig Wheel rider Adam Crew up in Seattle, WA for a top secret filming mission to log as much footage possible for the Foundation video.

Ethan Fowler is a writer! After recently being in Europe with the rest of the guys for a tour of Foundation demos Ethan found himself behind the typewriter. Completing a tour article of the trip for the newest Skateboard Mag September #30.

Matt Allen has been getting good at writing his own name. Being taken all over the US with Emerica, Matt has been flocked upon by kids wanting his name written on anything and everything. With demos and signings Im wondering how this kid logged so much footage already for the new video.

Angel Ramirez is finally home. After being sent to crazy places with Vans he is now comfortably back home filming in Colorado with the homies. Im sure youve seen all his coverage. You cant really miss it. Its in every magazine

Tommy Gurrola Recently had a photo of a monster kick flip in the Thrasher Photo Issue. His part in the new Foundation video will surely not disappoint.
