MESSAGE FROM MARKOVICH
All right, so it seems like yesterday I was covered in paint trying to get all the Crimson graphics done for the catalog. Oh wait, that was yesterday. Anyway it's been a pretty rad month since our doors opened. Definitely a new learning experience for everyone involved. Things are looking up for Crimson. On a personal note:damn, it's good to be skating again! Thanks to everyone for all your support.
CRIMSON TEAM UPDATE
Between doing all the artwork for Crimson and editing the promo video Kris somehow found the time to be one of the contributing artists for the Keep a Breast — Kings and Queens art show. The exhibit is the first ever 100% skateboarding Keep a Breast, uniting the most influential men and women in the industry to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Kris's set up now includes Destructo trucks and Speed Metal bearings. He'll be in Canada with James and rest the Hurley crew for the West 49 contest. For those that didn't know that Kris was hurt and recovering from Knee surgery, don't fret because he's off the DL and dropping hammers as you read this……….
While trying to shoot photos for his upcoming ad, James Atkin broke a couple of ribs from a battle with a 17-stair rail. Check out a healthier James in the latest issue of Automatic Magazine. James has the second Crimson ad in the December issue of Skateboarder.

CRIMSON'S FIRST TRADESHOW SEASON
The Crimson crew labored into the early hours of multiple mornings for two weeks leading into the ASR tradeshow. The hard work produced a unique tradeshow booth that featured Kris' artwork.
Mr. Markovich was spotted at Surf Expo hanging out at the South Shore and Eastern Distribution booths. It was great to get out and meet our accounts on both the east and west coast. A big Crimson thanks to everyone who stopped by and caught up with us. See you in January!
