I saw the press release today that Luke Mitrani is officially head-to-toe Volcom this winter. Which is good for the V.Co. and probably doesn’t matter to the B.Co. But yeah, it’s time we start thinking about winter on these 90degree days.

I also got some press release from DC regarding the Xgames, but that one just went directly into my trash.
