Props to Tyler Murgo (US) and Owen Carless (AU) who were featured in their local newspapers this week.
The Campbelltown Macarthur Advertiser hit Owen up for a story on freebording in Campbelltown where, “people visit Campbelltown from all over Sydney to use the long, steep, smooth hills with no traffic that are found in the area.” East Bay RI talked to Tyler about being “one of the youngest, and most promising talents in the sport.”
Nice work, guys!
