Limosine's "Toes Down" Photo Feature
It was a warm mid-August morning in Northeast Los Angeles. The Limosine crew assembled to embark on their first trip as a company operation. The plan was to pack in tight and drive up to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The crew started off ten deep in a jet-black Sprinter van. It came fully equipped with limo tint and two TVs. This was the closest we could get to riding in an actual limousine. Along the way, we jumped off bridges, swam in rivers and cut up the local crust while clocking smiles and miles up the coast. Check out some of the most memorable scenes from two weeks on the road.

Not even an hour out of LA and Nelly already had the squirt gun out
The first spot we checked was a rail across state lines in Eugene, Oregon. Karim kickflipped it with ease, despite a pack of harsh townies in his path
Then we got to this asphalt ski jump and Max got this hippie jump to grind. Check the mag to see what Cyrus snagged
Santino, Karim and Nelly were stoked to get the hell out of Eugene
Karim even got tricks in the van
First stop in Portland was the famed Courts. Nelly boosts a kickflip
Cyrus kept it going with this frontside flip
The Courts are great, but we had to get a taste of the Portland streets. First spot was this bank to wall where Max threw out a Losi grind
Santino follows up with a 180 grind
And Cyrus ended the session with a proper kickflip noseslide
Max, nollie 180. Shoutout, Emile and Brass
Rainier icepack for Max, post double set
Cyrus goes coast to coast with a crook at this fun little DIY
And we soaked in the sunset before moving on
We needed a skate break the next day. Our fearless driver J-Boy led the way with a front flip into the healing waters of the Pacific Northwest
Nelly rolled her ankle on day three, so she was swimming every chance she got—as seen here flying off J-Boy’s shoulders
Back in it, Cyrus grinds across a sketchy bump to rail onto a weird pillar
And some Frogs linked up for the day
After more beer-can ice therapy, Max was healthy enough for this front nose to the street
Logan and Mettz review the clip
Heading north, we made a pit stop at Yauger park on the way to Seattle
Cyrus blessed the locals with this golden-hour kickflip
Karim puts down a kickflip 50-50 in Seattle
Hugo went with a wallie to the parking lot
And Cyrus got on his Leo Romero shit—grind up in Tacoma
Aaron Loreth, switch pole jam
Back on the walls, Hugo goes wallie back tail before slamming straight to his back
Hugo, post front flip
Then we had a mandatory stop at Marginal Way. A sore Hugo soars a FSO over the channel
And Cyrus closes out the trip with a hefty lipslide on a Seattle dumpster
That’s a wrap! Thanks to everyone that helped along the way! Now go watch all the good times here
