When I was a kid and my favorite team came to town, we would stalk the tour van and follow it down the highway to its next stop. But times they-are-a-changin’ and Gravis Footwear has taken the skateboard tour to a new level.
On February 6th and 7th, Gravis will be hitting the road in Southern California to promote the release of its latest Arto and Arto LX shoe models. Starting in San Diego, team riders Arto Saari , Dylan Rieder, Sammy Winter , and Steve Forstner will be working their way up the coast, and allowing you to track their whereabouts on Twitter. By following the team's postings, you will be updated on their movements as they make their way through your favorite skateparks, shops, and spots, signing autographs and thowing down huge tricks along the way. The tour ends on February 7th with an epic BBQ somewhere in Los Angeles.
Gone may be the days of highway stalking, but with mobile phone updates available through twitter, this new touring trend may prove to be just as fun.
