Away Days Team Tour San Diego

8/21/16
San Diego marked the end of adidas Skateboarding's West Coast #AwayDaysTeamTour. Showcasing five #bringyourbuild features from local skateshops in the greater San Diego area and one from TransWorld SKATEboarding magazine, the event offered something for everyone to skate. Miles, Silas, Tyshawn, Dennis Busenitz, Pete Eldridge and Daewon Song demoed in skate jam fashion, giving kids a chance to skate alongside some of their favorite pros. Ending in two contests – a best trick jam on the Active feature and another to be the first to grind the 100-foot long flatbar – the fifth tour stop was a success. Stay tuned for for details on the East Coast Team Tour stops as well as global demo stops.
