It’s summer in So Cal, and you know what that means! That’s right, Demo Daze are upon us! Some Emerica riders are kickin’ things off with a Baker demo on Saturday, August 28 at Active Ride Shop in Escondido, California. As if that weren’t enough, you can also catch the Baker team, featuring some of your favorite Emerica riders, at 118 Board Shop in Granada Hills, California on Saturday, September 4. And lest you Midwesterners feel left out, they’ve also scheduled a demo at KC Indoor Skatepark in Kansas City, Missouri for Sunday, October 10.
If you have the chance to make it out to any one of these stops, I recommend you do so. These guys kill it! For those of you who’ve seen the Kids in Emerica DVD, you know what I’m talking about.

In the meantime, all you Northwestern Kids in Emerica should be on the lookout for Tosh’s crazed-out Weenabago Projekt to be pulling up to a local skate spot or skatepark near you soon, as Tosh and his crew head south from Vancouver spreading madness, merriment and mayhem in their wake. As the folks on the Element site put it,
"Tosh has really grown up. Not only does he juggle his hectic schedule with Element and Emerica, he has planned his own trip this summer with friends Jake Rupp, Terry Kennedy, Wes Lott, Ryan Cottrel and Brent Atchley. Tosh bought a 1977 Winnebago, redid it, had it all painted up and is headed out on the road for three weeks. So, look out for Tosh and crew in the following cities":
August 3-6 Vancouver, B.C.
August 7-9 Seattle, WA
August 10-12 Portland, OR
August 14-17 San Francisco, CA
August 18-20 YMCA Skate Camp at Visalia, CA
August 21-22 Los Angeles, CA
So, when and where are all the Emerica demos?, you might just be asking yourself right about now. Well, we’ve got some stuff in the boiler, so stay tuned for more updates. By the way, in case you need a plumber...
