Elwood New England Tour Video

Not too long ago the Elwood guy's rolled through New England on the last leg of the Dressin for Recession east coast tour. They stopped in Boston to hang out at the China courts for a skate jam/BBQ put together by Matt Bagley and the guys at Orchard. Pat Hickey showed up and a halfcab heelflip over the Red Bull jersey barrier which was one of the most impressive things I've seen on a skateboard. The next stop was Eastern Boarder Nashua for a signing then over to the park for a demo. I didn't make it to Nashua for the demo instead some of us went up to Maine to skate Kookmeyer's ramp. We hoped Drehobl and the guys might come by after the demo but they ended up going back to Boston to try to skate the C-bowl and check out some other spots. The Last day of the tour brought them to Identity in Portsmouth N.H. then over to Rye where the guys skated well past closing time on spent legs just to make a few list tricks. Check out the video and remember Kenny Anderson is goofy. Kenny also got one more switch banger but you'll have to wait for the official Elwood tour video for that one.

Here's our footage from Kookmeyer's. How rad would it have been to see Drehobl skate this thing?
