By this point you may be aware that a collection of the Santa Cruz team were in the UK a few weeks ago as part of their wider European Tour. With a heavy demo and signing schedule in hand, Tour Manager, filmer, Shiner Dist head honcho and Cider aficionado Alan Glass invited me along for the ride. Having shot the adidas Skate Copa Court event in East London earlier that day, I headed over to Stockwell on the Sunday afternoon to join the Tour. Here’s what went down over a busy three days traversing the motorway systems of the South (and South West) of England.

Tom Remillard – Japan grab, Stockwell
Arriving to a heavy Stockwell presence around 5.30, the BBQ and the local’s session was already well and truly ‘lit’. Jake Snelling and Jono Coote were smashing every corner of the park, whilst Lois Pendlebury, who’s been on a hiatus from the UK scene for a little while, was layback grinding the shit out of everything fully clad in Yoga Mom gear.
Good to see ya shreddin’ Big L!
Straight out of the van and staying well above the radar in a bright orange beanie, Tom Remillard wasted no time in freaking out pedestrians and worried motorists alike with a few of these Japan grabbed blasters out and over the wall.
