Word has leaked and we are confirming on 5/12/12 Vitaminwater will be hosting The Chad Kerley Invitational at The Bakery. 16-20 of the top BMX street riders in the world have been invited to the first ever contest being held at Brian Kachinsky’s Bakery. It is a best trick format hitting 5 obstacles, the fifth one will be a surprise obstacle never before seen or ridden.
Riders invited include Brian Kachinsky, Dennis Enarson, Nigel Sylvester, Chad Kerley and more. There will be a live broadcast.
RPRT clients Mark DellaGrotte (MMA) and Shane Borland (Skate + Surf) have committed to being part of the inaugural athlete team for highly popular coconut water drink, Zico. Mark and Shane will join such elite athletes as Bethany Hamilton and Kevin Garnett.
We are super excited to announce that RPRT client Nick Rozsa has signed on as the first athlete on Penny Skateboards. Penny, hailing from Australia, has hit on the hottest new trend of plastic retro skateboards from the 70’s. Penny boards are one of the fastest selling items in both surf and skate shops around the world. Nick Rozsa has staged a massive comeback in the surf industry with the release of his “Homegrown” series. As a lifelong skater, signing with Penny made sense to Nick since he actually rides one daily to check the waves!
Welcome edit will be live on the PENNY site tomorrow.

RPRT is now the go to source for film and tv productions looking to shoot skate and/or BMX segments. Repping iconic California pools as well as private skate parks, RPRT will also be working with The Bakery, owned by BMX client Brian Kachinsky.
