The Berrics

Things change. Boards change, shoes change, tricks change, skaters change.

Change is the manifestation of time, and time has shown us that skateboarding is here for as long as we—as individuals and as a community—create it into existence. Although much of the world is trying to stunt skateboarding's growth, there are enough rogue individuals out there continuing to make it happen. Whether it be by building ledges at a remote spot just east of downtown LA like Jason Hernandez, constructing mini-ramps in our backyards like Mikey Taylor, or buying buildings and constructing skateparks inside them like ourselves, we continue to grow because our will to skate and our will to survive is just that strong and because the only alternative is to quit and die. But we at the Berrics believe that life was made to live out of, not die out of. There's nothing special about dying. Anyone can do that. Push the future. — Steve Berra & Eric Koston.

Subaru Launch Control

The day their season finished in 2012, was the day preparation for 2013 began.

In this debut episode of Launch Control, Subaru Rally Team USA driver, David Higgins is preparing and training in Wales, UK for the upcoming season, while the Vermont Sports Car team is hard at work preparing the 2013 Subaru race cars. If there is a team that knows what goes into winning a championship, this would be it. Subaru's 2012 Rally America championship victory marked their 2nd in a row and their 6th in 7 years. Rallycross, on the other hand, is relatively new for the team. Competing against established rallycross teams from Europe, the learning curve for Bucky Lasek, Dave Mirra, Sverre Isachsen, and the team has been steep. New venues. New race format. New Rules, New Cars. As quickly as the three Subaru STI's ran on-track, the pace of development at the race shop has been just as quick. This is everything it takes to win. This is everything that gets in the way of victory. This is Launch Control.
