THERE and UNITY’S “Ruining Skateboarding” NYC Premiere Photos
The first stop of THERE and Unity’s Ruining Skateboarding tour went down earlier this week in New York. The sub-40-degree weather couldn’t stop everyone from rolling out, skating together and witnessing Jessyka Bailey get surprised with her first pro deck. Roses flew, bottles popped and everyone got a small glimpse of the good times to come. The next stops are SF, LA, Seattle and Vancouver. We’ll see you THERE. Until then, check the flicks from the first premiere in the Big City. —Ashley Rehfeld
