Emerica and West 49 ran a contest where you could win the chance to hang out and skate with Andrew Reynolds in Los Angeles. All you had to do was buy one of Reynold’s signature shoes from Emerica and enter your receipt number online. Josh Wiens & his friend Ky Oliver were the fortunate winnersfrom Winnipeg and had a day that is pretty hard to top. The day started with being picked up by Emerica’s team manager Heath Kirchart. They were taken to Baker Boys Distribution where they met up with Andrew Reynolds and skated the park in the back of the warehouse. After skating with Andrew and some of the Emerica and Shake Junt team for a while, Josh and Ky were each handed a box full of goodies from Baker/Shake Junt and Emerica. The boys were super hyped on what they found inside – 10 boards, shoes, tees and enough stickers to plaster a wall! Our next stop was Andrew Reynolds at the local park! He skated effortlessly around the park and was greeted by everyone and slapped too many high fives to remember. As the afternoon wore on and the sun had taken all our energy, Andrew wrapped up the day by signing a couple decks and tees for Josh and Ky. After dinner we were fortunate enough to attend the Transworld Skate Awards and enjoyed the premiere for the Cinematographer Project. Although the day seemed to go by too fast, everyone had a great time. We skated some great parks and have some memories that are really hard to forget. Thanks to Andrew, Heath, Jeff Henderson, Timothy and everybody at Emerica for the amazing memories! - Homer (Emerica sales rep for Timebomb Trading).
