San Francisco hosted the third stop of adidas Skateboarding’s #AwayDaysTeamTour. Featuring the #bringyourbuild concept, Miles Silvas’ home skateshop PLA and Mark Suciu’s Atlas skateshop joined DLXSF, 510 skateshop and FTC in elevating the demo with some amazing obstacles. In line with the previous stops, the event was more skate jam than demo with everybody having the opportunity to skate alongside Daewon Song, Miles Silvas, Jake Donnelly, Silas Baxter-Neal and Tyshawn Jones. Dennis Busenitz was sidelined with an injury but was in attendance the entire day, taking time to speak with the kids. The next stop is Los Angeles, where Pete Eldridge will join the tour at Lincoln Skate Plaza.

Selfie time with the one and only Daewon Song.
Stoked to meet new people, Daewon is all smiles.
And in return, everyone is all smiles once they meet Daewon.
This is going to be a classic we’ll all remember. Daewon flies with one hell of a judo air.
Power and finesse, Donnelly makes everyone want to kickflip better.
Miles pays homage to the homies at PLA with a back nose grind revert.
Not your typical flatbar, Silas feeble grinds FTC’s #bringyourbuild obstacle.
Good times to be had with this bump to bar. Silas noseblunts with ease.
Everyone likes a product toss.
Tyshawn and Silas tapped out on product.
Daewon marvels at a fan’s old wheels. That’s right, those use to be what everyone rode.
Soccer ball toss turned hack session with the homies.
Every tour van should have video games.

Donnelly doesn’t make a good manual pad.
Suciu wasn’t in attendance, but his home shop Atlas came through with a solid #bringyourbuild feature.
