Carlsbad CA— Following the monumental success of the full-length skate film Away Days, adidas Skateboarding kicks off the ‘Away Days – Team Tour’ that spans seven cities across the U.S including Carlsbad on August 21, 2016.
These community events will include demos by adidas Pro-team athletes and offer the opportunity to meet and skate with the riders. Select skate shops will participate in the “Bring Your Build” challenge contributing a custom build – a unique skate-able obstacle for use in the demo and as a gift to the skate community beyond the tour.
Skateboarders are also encouraged to participate in the challenge online by tagging their own DIY project with the hashtag #BRINGYOURBUILD for a chance to have their next custom project funded by adidas Skateboarding. Various prizes and giveaways will be made available for attendees.
The Away Days – Team Tour will include skate demos from:
Skate powerhouse and internationally acclaimed Pro team athlete, Dennis Busenitz stands out on the world stage. He’s a skater who goes against the grain, and never following the lines of others. He’s now celebrating 10 years on adidas, which took off with the launch of the now much acclaimed Busentiz Pro shoe.
For a professional skateboarder, Silas Baxter-Neal has a near-perfect résumé: countless covers, numerous quality video parts, Transworld Skateboarding rookie of the year, an X-Games gold medal, Thrasher’s coveted SOTY award, the list goes on and on. The latest installment to his stellar résumé is a two-song assault on all terrain in Away Days.
Daewon is a globally renowned skate giant and living legend who newly joined the adidas Skateboarding Pro team. With an uncanny sense and ability to see, and do things differently, Song is the best example of a skater doing things his own way and on his own terms.
Miles came onto the scene with a mind-blowing, never-been-done backside noseblunt on a sixteen-stair handrail that graced the cover of Transworld Skateboarding in 2013. Since then it’s been a nonstop whirlwind of global travel for this Sacramento native. Blessed with a great style, Miles has a knack for making really difficult tricks look graceful and easy.
One of the youngest members of the adidas Skateboarding Global team from the Bronx, Tyshawn’s rise to fame came in the release of Supreme’s Cherry video. His highly acclaimed video part in Away Days demonstrated is otherworldly talent and saw his introduction into the Pro ranks.
The event takes place at 5:00pm, August 21 at Transworld Headquarters, 2052 Corte Del Nogal in Carlsbad
