Next stop on the tour was the Zumiez signing in Visalia, CA. Hundreds of people showed up chanting “FLIP,” the mall security didn’t let people take photos in the mall (dicks as usual) and the crew had an epic time eating Apple Annie’s breakfast feast in the morning. After we left Visalia we headed north to Santa Cruz to visit NHS, raid the warehouse (thanks Jordan!) and have a signing at the Santa Cruz Boardroom. This was where the crowd chaos really got to high levels and the crew was fucking stoked! Hats off to the people of Santa Cruz. You guys kill it!! Andy Roy and Jason Jessee even had a chance to stop by and say what’s up. On Friday we made our way to Redwood City to skate Langi’s local skatepark. Rain was upon us, but luckily we got in a solid session before the storm hit and got to chow down on 100 Chipotle burritos while Flip flow rider, Auby Taylor tried bs tail kickflip out on the gnarly tranny wall. Big thanks to Zumiez, NHS and the Santa Cruz Boardroom. Stay tuned for part 4…
Next stop on the Flip West Coast Represent tour was the Simi Valley demo. On this stop we had Dave Duncan MC’ing and AVE joining us on the tour as a guest skater. From this point forward the voyage started getting into some rad and weird territory with the late night hijinx and pranks reaching new levels! People got their beds pissed on, shit on and worse… Tour chaos set to maximum carnage basically. After the demo we headed north to Tehachapi, CA where the fine people at Woodward let us session their camp for the day. Woodward is basically a giant compound with more obstacles to skate than any other place i’ve ever seen. They even have a mega ramp where Rune got a serious hammer and a few others got broke off… all good in the hood though. On our way out of town we skated an apocalyptic ditch spot that had some of the best and worst graffiti ever! Next stop… Visalia, CA. Check out this video from the Simi Valley demo and thanks to Skatelab and Woodward for the good times!
