For the second half of this tour, Nick Palmquist flew into Raleigh, North Carolina and met the Foundation team to skate the remaining three demos. He was able to skate and rip the first two demos, but an hour before the third demo, he broke his arm and wrist on a real bad slam skating a 12-stair handrail. The DC team was in town this weekend also, so at the third demo, the DC team joined the Foundation guys to skate the demo—so you’ll see some DC guys in the edit! The skateparks were YDG Skatepark, The Durham Skatepark, and Vertical Urge Skatepark.—Chris Thiessen
