April 2008

Happy April Fools! Here's the low-down so far. The Dessert Dog Tour has been cancelled because of prior commitments. Eventually will get to Arizona, probably in the middle of summer to sweat our nuts off. That being said, the crew will be at the 2008 Death Race at Semi-Valley Skate Lab this Saturday (April 5th). Look for most of the Sacrifice Team in the event and/or getting their lurk on. As most of you might know by now, BJ Morrill has moved on to get in on the ground up of a new skate company. We know that BJ will represent hard for his new team and make things happen, good luck homeboy! With that, Sacrifice has picked up all around bad-ass Mike Runyan. This guy does not *bleep* around and is 100% no joke 24/7. Check out Mike's footage on the main page, serious skating! The new Low-Card and Concussion are circulating. Get out from under your rock and pick up the new issues!
