deffiently not in san diego anymore... photo by - Morris

So we woke up in Texas with a free buffet at the hotel. A nice change from the beef jerky diet we were all on. Ate then immedietly hit the road for Oklahoma City. Matt Hoffman extreme skatepark was the next stop. That park turned out to be pretty fun. Even with the large crowd. The locals all ripped the 9 stair hubbas and rail for the best trick contest. Shortly after the cops shut down the place for anybody with out a helmet. Oh well...product toss and autographs went down and we were out. Had some group photos with the active guys as they would keep the journey going all the way to Skate plaza and the TumYeto guys would make the drive back to San Diego. That night...

entering New Mexico

Got up bright and early saturday morning in Arizona for the super fun 8 hour drive to New Mexico. Went straight from the van to the Albequerque skatepark. Ate some dogs and schralped the park for a couple hours before we met up with DJ Chavez. Went out to dinner then decided it would be best to try and make it halfway to Oklahoma City where the next skatepark session would be at. That means stop in Texas for the night.

Duff man 50-50 in Arizona - photo by Morris

Woke up friday morning in Arizona and had to get out of the hotel and find some food. After a long stop at a bagel shop we hit up Peoria skatepark in the 103 degree sun. Weee! Slurpees and beef jerky followed and we drove off looking for a weapons store when we came across a handrail that looked neat i guess. The rail got 50ed and then we drove straight to Tempe skatepark for a Active Hot Dogs & Hessians stop. That skatepark is amazing. Everyone skated that place for 3 hours until we decided to get some grub and call it a night.

TumYeto and Active Crew

We packed the van and left TumYeto around 5pm on thursday 6/15. The plan was to meet the Active guys in Tempe Arizona that night with skatepark appearances/Barbeques/product tosses the following next 3 days. We didn't have the best luck driving to Arizona. A flat tire and being pulled over doesn't really speed up the whole process. But we made it into Tempe around midnight. Street skating followed until 4 am when we finally went to sleep.

Toy Machine Hoping I don't die.

Image Description This is a self portrait from the first night of the Wild Ride tour. We set up out tents and and about 2 hours later an epic storm blew over us. We ran into our tents and all laid in them, watching the constant lighting, incredible thunder, and pounding rain hit our thin nylon membranes. Only a fraction of an inch to protect your from the wrath of mother nature... Thankfully, stakes held out, and lighting did not venture my way. Just when you thought the storm was subsiding, a terrible clap of thunder would launch us up a few inches off the ground, and the rain would start up again with renewed tenacity. One of the worst storms I ever had to be so close to, and one of the best times in my life.

Tum Yeto The Great San Diego Skate Park Tour Review

So we had a tour of some of the best skate parks in San Diego for Go Skateboarding Day. The van got loaded with team riders and everyone met at the first stop Poway skate park. Everyone barged the park without helmets and we got to skate for about 45 minutes before city members showed up and shut down the park to all without the proper safety equipment. Rules are rules I guess. The product toss went off from the top of the Sun Diego van and we were out. Thanks Poway skaters you guys rule.

Next stop was the Clairemont YMCA. The place was packed to capacity. Chipotle Burritos got brought out for that stop and all eaten in less then 10 min. Everyone that could get into the park ripped, product was given out and before we knew it we were off to Ocean Beach. I started to notice carloads of people following us hmmm

OB was a nice change because it is located right next to the ocean so we got that cool breeze every once in awhile. Everyone skated inside and outside the park. Autographs were signed and product was tossed once again. Before we knew it, it was time for the final stop Chula Vista.

By this time we had about 5 cars following us to the last stop. Handoffs on the freeway for licorice between the team van and some TumYeto friends got handled properly. Thanks Jared. As we pulled up to the last stop I noticed there was probably 400 kids there waiting for us. Saved the best stop for last. A barbeque followed with Overload manning the veggie dogs. Every inch of the skate park got skated and the last of the product got tossed. Hopefully everyone had as much fun as I did. See you next year San Diego. Thanks for coming out!

Special thanks go out to Kevin, Robert and Gabe at Overload, Lazlo and staff at Clairemont, Gabe and staff at Ocean beach, Aaron and staff at Chula Vista, Sobe, Monster energy drink, Vitamin water, Marnie Mcgarnahan at Chipotle, Joe Picciolo at Fuel TV, Paul at Sun Diego, the 2 lovely ladies that helped with the hotdogs, and of course the Tumyeto staff. We couldnt have done it without all your help, thanks everyone. Give yourself a big pat on the back.
