This Xcorps ASR special begins with on camera host reporter Jason Lazo at the sexy REEF booth and some new tunes and a video from RIVE featuring Reach Records Atlanta rapper TEDASHII doing the song "Burn This House Down'.

Next Jason stops at the GOPRO mega booth complete with Ford GT40 race car and lots of big video screens full of wide big POV action shots of the sports TheXcorps likes to cover - surf - sand and skate as well as motorsports!
Jason talks with GoPro frontman Justin Wilkenfeld about the compact rugged and affordable camera system. Super cool action shots roll with the interview.
SubNoiZe band DIRTBALL provides the beat with Tried Trued Tested matching the sick action of a kayaker dropping down a vertical whitewater chute! Nice.
ASR was all about insanely cool new products like the wild strap on for cyber powers rig called the Power Strider which basically enables one to have spring legs and do backflips 10 feet in the air! Check out demo rider Henry Holloway having some BIG fun for the Xcams bouncing front and back flips and fully representing ASR at ASR!
