About Wild Ride 2008

Have you ever wondered what it's like to go on tour with a bunch of professional skateboarders? What really goes on when some of the world's best skaters hit the road in search of good spots and good times? Your chance to find out will arrive when Emerica's Wild Ride 2008 rolls through the East Coast in June 2008.

Emerica's Wild Ride is the first-ever fully interactive professional skateboarding tour, and you're invited to join the caravan and come camping and skating with the Emerica team! It will kick off on June 10, 2008 in Easley, South Carolina and end up at Emerica's Wild in the Streets in New York City on Go Skateboarding Day, June 21, 2008! You and your friends are invited to join us for a day, a week, or the whole shebang!

So, start saving your lunch money and mowing lawns for your gas and food funds. And just because some people are on motorcycles, don't worry. Half of the team will be cruising in vans or campers, too. Cars, trucks and vans are encouraged to join our mobile skate posse. Ride free this Summer with Emerica!

This page will feature all the news for the Wild Ride 2008 as it unfolds, so check back regularly for updates. We'll see you on the road!

Parental Advisory: As with any real professional skateboarding tour, some materials and situations may not be suitable for persons under 18 years old.
