Here’s some footage from the Dagger jam that went down recently in Arizona. Looks like a bunch of people made it out including some of the Kink team.

Etnies sent through an email that talks a little bit about the recent skate and BMX clinics they held at the Etnies park in Lake Forest (Not so Peg Friendly park). Nathan Williams and Ashley Charles were on hand to spend some time with the kids. Here’s the press release…
“April 5, 2011 (Lake Forest, CA) – Last Saturday, on World Autism Awareness Day, etnies, Autism Speaks and the A.skate Foundation provided a day of free skate clinics for kids on the autism spectrum at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest. With the help of more than 40 volunteers, including etnies team riders Jose Rojo, Kyle Leeper, Devine Calloway, Kyle Loza, Nathan Williams and Ashley Charles, 80 children with autism of all ages were provided with one-on-one skateboarding lessons, which serve as a unique social outlet for kids who often struggle with social interaction.
To watch the kids from etnies’ Skate Clinic with Autism Speaks and the A.skate Foundation shine on their skateboards, check out this video:Click here.
As each of the four clinics held throughout the day began, the children’s faces lit up with enjoyment when they had their feet planted on the board, their hands safely held on to by their helper and the vocal encouragement by their family and volunteers. The children’s excitement for skateboarding shone through.
etnies teamed up with Autism Speaks, North America’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, and the A.skate Foundation, an organization that allows children with autism to be a part of our social world through skateboarding, to provide children on the spectrum a day of fun while also raising awareness in the community of this prevalent disorder affecting one in 110 children.
etnies and Autism Speaks currently share a partnership on co-branded shoes which will provide a portion of the proceeds from sales to Autism Speaks. The etnies x Autism Speaks shoes can be found on the etnies site: here.
Brodie Gwilliam made his way to Vancover and stayed at the Ghetto Mansion, Vancouver’s premiere BMX house. While he stayed, he had his camera out and was filming and ended up with 11 minutes of really well filmed and edited clips along with great riding.

The Mangler, Michael McQueen is one of the bigger names in the filming and editing game these days. There’s a good chance that even if the name doesn’t sound familiar, you have probably seen one of his edits. He came across an old disc he burned with some old clips from 2001-2002 and decided to put them together for the edit you can find above.
