STONE-AGE EAST COAST TOUR ROUND #1 – NORTHEAST
Check Video here!
On Monday June 8th, the Northeast Screen Printing Tour with Pro's Caswell Berry, David Gonzalez and Am Collin Provost began. We started our tour on a beautiful sunny day in North Hampton, NH at Pioneers Board shop. The reggae was pumping as Slater manned the grill and fed the youngsters while they waited for tees. Our next stop was at Identity in Portsmouth where we took over their back alley. We were cited for our "amplification" by the police, but that didn't stop the fun. The boys fed us some pretty epic flat bread pizza while Caswell, David and Collin rifled through tees for the crowd.
The weather quickly turned south for day 2, with rain and highs in the 50's. That didn't stop the 100+ people from showing up at Theory Skateshop in Springfield, MA. We wish we had enough time to skate their epic park Junction, but we had to get on the road. We then headed 90 miles east to arrive at Eastern Boarder in Natick, MA. The weather seemed to turn worse but the kids kept coming, including EB's skate team/employees form their other 4 locations. Our team riders signed tons of autographs, and one kid even brought his entire collection of magazines for all to sign. We kept the place open way later than expected while their loyal customers played games of skate inside, on their rug.
Day 3 started at New Bedford's finest, Solstice skate shop. Jay was busy helping customers while an eclectic mix of skaters and town folk were getting tees from us. A huge shout out goes to Craig at No Problemo for feeding the enitre crew with the best burritos around. Caswell especially enjoyed Nick Dompierre's signature hot Sauce. The last stop proved to be the largest at Civil in East Greenwich, RI. There were at least 300 people for this event, which I believe set a screen printing record? David, Colin and the boys powered through tees as well as signing hundreds of autographs. Caswell was even nice enough to sign someone's baby.
