Low Life Tour 2011: Palace Five/Pitcrew
Hammeke checks back in from Palace Five and Pitcrew on the Baker has a Deathwish tour.
Ellington was up early, making a skatespot in the hotel parking lot
This is probably a lot like what there is to skate in Alaska
We were running a bit late, so the awaiting fans were plenty
Lots of fans and they were hyped
Beagle with the beers
Sign my book
Sign my grip
While most were inside at the tables, Lizard prefers to just wander the crowd
The line to get in after an hour of signing had gone down
Fans were still arriving
The beers that were drank
Doughnut just had to join in the fun and get his shirt signed
Neen and the twins!
Repping the Neen shirt
Found Bobby lurkin at Pulaski
Went by Pitcrew early to pick up some supplies
Nuge got a box from Goal Zero with a speaker box and solar-powered phone charger
Moose and Lenoce set up new decks…
While Braydon has a smoke
Lizard ain’t aftraid to drink alone
And the demo
Slash, backside flip from the hip over the rail
Figgy backs it up frontside
Baker Boys gotta jump down something, so when there're no stairs they make the most of a bank. Neen, kickflip
Dirty D, heelflip
Moose, backside flip
Meanwhile, Greco is up top working on something
After several crashes through the crowd, Jim showed them what a body jar really is
Moose is a demo and non-demo machine. Back tail
Doughnut experimenting with new angles
Heelflip board? Don’t mind if I do
That’s right, stoked some more
Figgy started off the bank session with a kickflip wallride
Lizard ended it with a kickflip nose to 180 out
Much to these guys' approval
Huge line at Pitcrew
Filling in the shop
Trying to bust through the door
Ralph Steadman boards to accompany the free Flying Dog beers.
Let's see who smells the worst!
