Words & Photos: Hammeke
The crew got a late start out of LA but made it toPHX for the first stop on this summer's Baker has a Deathwish tour
Straight to the Peoria park. Lenoce with the switch heel
Moose with a tré flip
Lizard, ollie out as the park ranger shuts it down
Next day, the van has some over-heating issues in 111 degrees
No worries—Herman's dad is a TV repair man; he's got an ultimate set of tools
Beagle rescues a shoe from the tree
The beagle monkey
Next stop: El Paso. Found this spot on the way. Baca takes it to the 1980s and skates the curb
Deathwish is not afraid to bring a couple homies along, so this year Richie Belton got the extra seat in the Green Room van. Here, he tests out an ollie to the street
Richie's shirt says The Moose Is Loose, so Moose follows him to the street
Big in Texas
First stop is the signing at Crooks skateshop
The kids like the home-made shirts
And so does Beagle
This kid is stoked—he's got enough posters to wallpaper his room
The first signing of the trip and it only took three hours
They like to get Piss Drunk in El Paso
Then to the park for the demo
If you seen the Cayman Islands "just like paradise," you know Reynolds can skate the transitions, too
If a Lizard's tail falls off, it comes right back. Looks like this Lizard's foot does the same
The crowd was intense
