Elemental Awareness packed up the van and hit the road for 10 days through the southwest. We visited many good friends on the Apache, Navajo and Hopi Reservations along the way hosting three skateboard events and having a great time doing it. Thanks to everybody who made this trip possible. We are looking forward to the next one!
The third stop on the EA Southwest tour was held at Louise Yellowman skate park in Tuba City, AZ. Both street and tranny rippers showed up to skate in the contest. EA family member, Cody Hager tore up the course with his wild animal style. Everyone was stoked on the day as tons of prizes were given out. Special thanks to Larry and Landrick for hosting us on the final stop of the tour. Click here to see more photos from the event.
.The second stop of the Southwest Tour was in Window Rock, AZ. The event was held at the Raymond Nakai Hall where skaters showed up hours before the event to practice. Within a few hours the EA team and local skaters transformed the hall into a full blown skate plaza decorated with boxes, ramps, and rails. While the contest progressed Element Advocate Mike Kershnar worked with Window Rock locals to create graffiti art. Following the awards ceremony, there was a “worst board contest”, giving skaters a chance to replace their old board with a new one. Overall the contest was a hit for the town and EA. Special thanks to Gino and Molly Antonio for making the event possible. Click here to see more photos from the event.
The first stop of the Elemental Awareness Southwest Tour was in San Carlos on Apache Land. The event was cohosted by local sons Doug Miles and the Apache Skateboards team. It was an awesome afternoon with all levels of skaters ripping up the unique park. In addition to the skating, Element Advocate Mike Kershnar and Doug Miles collaborated on a 20 foot graffiti wall featuring a red fox. Prizes were awarded all day to best trick winners as well as the classic “worst board contest”. Special thanks to the Doug Miles for hosting us and providing an unforgettable night around the campfire. Click here to see more photos from the contest.
