Emerica Signing & Demo Recap

A ton of raging Emerica fans rolled up to Active Chino Hills to meet their favorite team riders. A solid turn out at the shop. The demo was even more intense. Right when we rolled up to Ayala Park, non stop shredding was going on. The park was packed with many onlookers watching the Emerica team shred.

Emerica completely out did themselves this year. Their “B-Sides” webisode follow up to Stay Gold was more than you or I could ask for… or even deserved.

Emerica Industry Profile

You know when you’re at school…or a rock n roll show, and there’s always that one dude, or group of dudes, that are way cooler then everyone else? And for some reason they’re always one step ahead of you…

So with all the hype and attention around Emerica and Stay Gold right now, we thought we’d talk to Timothy Nickloff, Emerica’s Brand Manager, and find out what’s really goin’ on over there…
