Pat Milbery and Dave Sheets of the So-Gnar Creative Division were able to take care of this Zumiez Couch Tour stop in Philadelphia before flying out to Germany the next day for X Games Munich.
Since there were only two members from So-Gnar and a Zumiez employee to help, everyone stayed real busy throughout the day as kids, parents and skaters came through the Art Lounge to paint on the Zumiez X So-Gnar Couch Mural, color in posters and play the larger than life game of Operation.
People were getting real creative with the stencils at this Couch Tour stop. Skaters from all around Philly were taking a can of Plutonium spray paint and using either a Create or Die, So-Gnar Submarine or So-Gnar Monster “Fangs” stencil to decorate the grip tape on their skateboards. Just another great and safe way to have fun.
This stop was held at Paine’s Park where music artist such as Riff Raff and Trash Talk came out to perform live in front of the crowd along with a live demo from the Adidas Skate Team. The crowd was definitely a little more alive at this stop especially cause it was held on national Go Skateboarding Day.
Check out the photos to get a good idea of everything that was going on, and we will see you at the next stop in New York! Thanks for the love Philadelphia, make more art, have fun skateboarding and thanks for creating with us!
