The “Keep on Tuckin” Tour is a West Coast downhill skateboard tour presented by Wheelbase Magazine & Muir Skate Longboard Shop, and sponsored by Paris Truck Co., Loaded Boards, Landyatchz, RDVX, RAD, Waterloo Wheel Designs, SkateHouseMedia, and Rip City Skate. On June 21, 2013 a group of diverse and ripping skaters will pile into the MUIRcedes and head out to hit as many races, hills, bowls, and parks as we can from San Diego, California all the way up to Whistler, BC Canada. Stay tuned to the event page on Facebook for updates as to where we’ll be on any given day of the tour. Also, and most definitely, stay tuned for full coverage of every one of our tour-stops right here at WheelbaseMag.com
Our guest list (hand picked for flavor and ripeness) includes the following group of
skate rats skateboard afficionados from across the industry:
Kody Noble, John Kruetter, Eric Jensen, Amanda Powell, Dane Webber, Louis Pilloni, Hayden Conroy, Marcus Bandy, Max Capps, Scott “El Beasto” Lembach, Zac Sharp, and Seth Brown.
Our dedicated photographer David Ruano (he rips too of course) will be on-hand to capture all of the good stuff in the form of rad photos and video, so you can expect to see the awesomeness even if you’re unable to make it out to one of our stops. We’ll be posting 7 photo articles to the site featuring each new spot. We’ll wrap it all with an all-encompassing video edit (or two) of the whole shabangarang. Sweetness!
The Wheelbase Magazine Tent will be busted out at all three events (Angie’s, Maryhill, Whistler) under which we’ll be lurking with the crew (see list above) and giving away stuffandthings from our tour sponsors: Landyatchz, RDVX, RAD, Waterloo Wheel Designs Paris Truck co., Loaded Boards, by way of spinning contests via our updated “Wheel of Misfortune” (see image below). Stickers and such will also be handed from all of our supporting brands. Yum!
If you’ve got plans to be around any of the stops along our journey, check in with our crew! Say wassup, skate a lil bit, tell us where to get the “best burrito in town”, offer us a space to crash on your floor even though you hope we’ll decline (we won’t), reluctantly allow us to use your shower, get mad that the MUIR-Cedes takes up both the parking spaces allotted for your apartment, ask us to leave without causing a scene and, if all goes as planned, we’ll be out of your hair by the crack of noon! If you’ve read this far, good on ya, pal! I think it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing you on the tour. Until then, happy skating!
