Right then, Mister Powell has just spent 10 days touring the West coast of the USA on the Flip Feast Tour. Here’s some nonsense from along the way…
Live from Sheckler’s bowels. This was our home for 10 days.
This was the first of many signings, in a mall opposite various random non-skate related shops.
This signing happened straight after the first demo…
Back onto the bus to laugh at Sheckler fan ephemera.
Signing number 2, see if you can spot how stoked Arto is at the prospect.
That’s correct – f-ing hundreds of them…
Geoff’s motor avec sketchy license plate.
Ruin it with pens.
Crowds for the second demo like whoa… Imagine being handed a microphone in front of this many people and then being told by mounted police that swearing is not acceptable. Stoked. (Photo:Wilkins)
That Monster shit doesn’t half make your teeth buzz. Signing number 3.
Arnie and Hunter S Thompson chill outside the hotel in Sacramento, shortly before this happened:
Big Louie and little Louie – for a 13 year old, Louie ain’t scared:
Next stop – Medford Oregon
Finally arrive in Medford and go sample their park. John Humphries approaches the hip, whilst Gentsch estimates the width of a cow’s arse to the right.
The Bear threw together a decent omelette.
Can you stop swerving NIck? It’s f-cking up my forum posts.
Roadside services en route to Spokane. No Ginsters here.
Ice? No shit. This was the first time Luan had ever seen snow.
The dude in camo on the left was lurking around the mall and was overheard saying “My orders are to shoot anything that moves” into his cellphone. Unperturbed we invited him onto the RV for his last beer before being shipped out to Iraq the next morning. Allegedly.
Scotland meets Germany – we estimated that Gentsch (on the right) had drunk 250 beers in 10 days. What a champ.
Oregon looks like Scotland.
Curren’s baby teeth were a casualty of too many sweets. Cue David Gonzales, “In Colombia when your teeth fall out a rat comes and steals them from under your pillow”. Gangster style.
Warming up for the last demo.
Don’t let the Birkenstocks fool you; Kevin Wilkins likes booze.
So stoked on Spiderman.
Arto works on team building with Curren after the last demo.
What’s Colombian for ‘fuck off’?
