This week, we interviewed with one of our own surf athetes Luke Fuhrman to get some insite for those who dont know him. This young 15 year old hails from Hunington Beach CA. At the early age of 7 he started shredding the knar due to his friends and family who surfed. When he started getting serious, went to surf camps and got private coaches as well to improve himself. When asked what he loves most about surfing, he awnsered "just the amazing feeling of learning a new trick, or getting that perfect wave". He competes in CCSA comps as well as on his schools varsity surf team. Other things that interest Luke is skating, BMX, and riding dirt bikes. After a long good day of surfing, the best food he would choose to have would be Pick Up Stix. (And might i just say that i just went there for the first time and OMG... Amazing. Probably not healthy, but good all the same). And after a very nice interview, we asked what would be the perfect day for this kid. His response was, Wake up, go surf his brains out, hit up Pick up Stix and end it off with some girls. Short and simple, got to like that. Well this is Luke Fuhrman everyone. Look for him in the future to come up through the ranks. Keep it up Luke.
Please welcome London Hudson to the team! London is ten years old and has been skating for four years. He has skated in Spain and all over Canada. London's proudest moment was the time he landed his first air of about four feet, although currently, he is known to go bigger. He hopes to skate in New York this year. Look for him in the Vans Pro Pool Party at the end of summer.
Our youngest athlete, Scout Swing age 8, is focusing on his goals for 2013. He started racing almost two years ago and is planning for a big year. In 2012 he was the Triple Crown Series champion in the super peewee class. Scout has been riding many tracks, mainly his home track at Perris Raceway, in preparation for the World Minis in Nevada. He hopes to make road trip and ride all Arizona tracks this summer.

New comers, in every sport there are up and comers trying to make it big in the sport they compete in. Now tell me one person who doesn’t like new comers, people that you have never heard of that just show up and blow the doors off the competition. Focus Apparel's very own Colton Aeck AKA Colt 45 is one of those people. He races in the 450 Amateur Pro class and currently trying to get his pro card to start 2013 racing the AMA Outdoor Nationals. He has recently been killing it in his races minus a few bobles here and there. I would definitely keep him in your scopes for the future. He has recently made headlines being interviewed by Transworld Motocross online. Check out this link below and see what colton has to say to the interviewer Steve Emter. http://motocross.transworld.net/1000139452/features/muscle-milktwmx-race-series-profile-colton-aeck/
Focus Apparel has recently added some designs to the womens' collection. We were excited to start the photo-shoot and get some pictures to share with you. Here's a glimpse of a day with us: It started by taking a quick drive down PCH to the beach for an afternoon. We walked around until we found the perfect spot. We snapped some photos and got a little sun too! Then we drove around passing strawberry fields until we found the ideal place. A place tucked away with a great view of the mountains, like it was saved for us. After several hundred shots we called it a day. Check it out!
