The “Keep on Tuckin” Tour is a west coast downhill skateboard tour presented by Wheelbase Magazine & Muir Skate Longboard Shop. 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 at WheelbaseMag.com
Our guest list thus far (hand picked for flavor and ripeness) includes, but not limited to, the following group of
skate rats skateboard afficionados from across the industry: Kody Noble, John Kreutter, Hayden Conroy, Marcus Bandy, Max Capps, Scott “El Beasto” Lembach and Seth Brown. (The official/full list of riders will be released shortly. “El Beasto”, our Editor-in-Chief, and other riders will be making special appearances along a leg or two of the journey.) Our dedicated photographer David Ruano 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 photo articles to the site as we arrive at each new spot and finishing it off with an all-encompassing video edit (or two) of the whole shabangarang.
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 by way of spinning contests via our updated “Wheel of Misfortune”! We’ll have stickers, swag and general giveaways from a wide range of our supporting brands.
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!
