Baker Low Life Tour: Baton Rouge

by Hammeke

From Houston we went to LA—not Los Angeles, but to the wonderful state of Louisiana. The cities on our hit list were Baton Rouge and New Orleans, but since there's not a whole lot of spots to skate in the heat of those areas, we were pretty much on a party mission.



A little warm up in the Ruckus parking lot.

One of only a few spots to skate in Baton Rouge. It took less than five minutes to kick 20 guys out of here.


The other spot was Catfish Banks, and that's where the demo was. You never realize how good some cites are for skating compared to others until you get out on the road.


The locals rip this shit, though.




They built a spine splitter.


A generator for a day session?


Yup, it runs this giant fan.


More shit to skate?



Demo goods and product toss.






Demo's over—straight to Bourbon Street, New Orleans.


Pick up street beers at the G Shoppe.




This is where it gets blurry.


Slash made a super straw…


…so he could poach drinks.


Next day signing at Humidity.


The guys arrive.


And so does the New Orleans police department.

Too many days in the French Quarter can change your habits.


Like getting coffee somewhere other than Starbucks.
