Yesterday, while attempting doing a 7 foot 540, Steven Piñeiro, from Jacksonville, Fla broke his wrist in the Bondi Pool and had to be rushed to the hospital. Now Steven's doing fine.

Steven was ripping at the bowl all day yesterday and in the words of Lee Leal the manager of the team Embassy: “Steven's a tuff guy. I have the sequence of him attempting the 7 foot 540. We're I come from, it's SKATE TUFF OR GO HOME!! Yea, we're in the Land down Under, but it's all good! Steven was RIPPING1 I just wish the doc would get on w/ this thing, so we can get back to the beach!!!!”

Steven Piñeiro is thirteen year old and has only been skating for 3 years after seeing people skating at a beach in Florida. He will be in 8th grade in the fall. He's got 540 variations, and has skated bowl contests in Oregon. He rides for Embassy skateboards.

Too bad he broke his wrist just before the contest, so he is out and can’t even skate for the rest of his stay in Australia…

isTia wishes Steven all the luck and a speedy recovery. See you at Vans Protec Pool Party next month and Keep-on rippin' kid!!!
