Underworld has announced their new "Yesterday's Future" video featuring Dustin Montie, Carl Labelle, Chad Dickson, Grant Peterson, Gianmarco Alaimo, Jason Crolly, Geoff Dermer, Paul Carter, Ted Degors, Dave Lapchuk and many others filmed on location in Canada *, New York *, California * and Europe *.
Ted Degros is now on the Underworld team and is interviewed in a recent Transworld Skateboarding Magazine *. Geoff Dermer also joins the team along with 'teenage ripper' Micky Papa, and first female team members Tamara Drybrough and Margaux Walker. It's clear, as Underworld suggests, that we should all "be on a serious look out for the woman revolution in skateboarding."
Labelle has reportedly returned from Brazil * with support from Red Bull *, Grant Patterson is filming for his new Circa * video part.
This year's AM getting Paid contest will be back at Montreal *'s South Park, September 24th- 26th. The prize purse this year is promised to be the 'biggest ever' for the event, a total of US$15,000.
