Dugan, Mat, Chase & Aaron:
Hoss’s House

Here’s a fun new edit from Empire / Devon. Tom Dugan, Chase Hawk, Aaron Ross and a whole crew of homies get awesome on a sweet backyard setup.

the age-old question which has vexed philosopher kings since the dawn of man: what really is best in life? is it to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women? or is it, as I believe, best to shred the gnar on a backyard ramp with your bros? you already know!

Tom & Aaron:
Argentina Vacation

Empire flew Tom Dugan, Aaron Ross and Kevin Porter out to Argentina recently and came back with some fresh footage. The raw clips of Tom at the demo in the beginning is amazing and some of the spots they got to ride down there looks like so much fun.

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to send Tommy, Aaron, and Kevin to Argentina for a little rest and relaxation recently, and here is the fun as filmed/edited by Devon Hutchins. The crew was hosted by two amazing individuals, Aurora and Marcelo, and we can’t even begin to thank them enough for the generosity and hospitality. Argentina is an incredible place, and the boys said it was one of the best trips of their lives! Thanks Argentina, Empire BMX
