Low Life Tour 2011: Palace Five/Pitcrew

Low Life Tour 2011: Palace Five/Pitcrew

Hammeke checks back in from Palace Five and Pitcrew on the Baker has a Deathwish tour.

Ellington was up early, making a skatespot in the hotel parking lot


This is probably a lot like what there is to skate in Alaska

We were running a bit late, so the awaiting fans were plenty

Lots of fans and they were hyped

Beagle with the beers

Sign my book

Sign my grip

While most were inside at the tables, Lizard prefers to just wander the crowd

The line to get in after an hour of signing had gone down

Fans were still arriving

The beers that were drank

Doughnut just had to join in the fun and get his shirt signed

Neen and the twins!

Repping the Neen shirt

Found Bobby lurkin at Pulaski

Went by Pitcrew early to pick up some supplies

Nuge got a box from Goal Zero with a speaker box and solar-powered phone charger

Moose and Lenoce set up new decks…

While Braydon has a smoke

Lizard ain’t aftraid to drink alone

And the demo

Slash, backside flip from the hip over the rail

Figgy backs it up frontside

Baker Boys gotta jump down something, so when there're no stairs they make the most of a bank. Neen, kickflip

Dirty D,  heelflip

Moose, backside flip

Meanwhile, Greco is up top working on something

After several crashes through the crowd, Jim showed them what a body jar really is

Moose is a demo and non-demo machine. Back tail

Doughnut experimenting with new angles

Heelflip board? Don’t mind if I do

That’s right, stoked some more

Figgy started off the bank session with a kickflip wallride

Lizard ended it with a kickflip nose to 180 out

Much to these guys' approval

Huge line at Pitcrew

Filling in the shop

Trying to bust through the door

Ralph Steadman boards to accompany the free Flying Dog beers.
