The skate tour formula hasn’t changed much in the last 30+ years: Get the team in a van and hit the road. So that’s exactly what we did. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel here, just trying to enjoy our time spent on four wheels.
Alex Olson, Blake Carpenter, Yuto Horigome, Bobby Worrest, Daan van der Linden, Cyrus Bennett, Jacopo Carozzi and Stu Kirst on the road through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Even Nyjah Huston and Eric Koston dropped in for a few stops.
Established in 2017 by Mickey Reyes, Cat’s Paw Saloon quickly became the destination for any skateboarder passing through the Rose City…besides Burnside. It was only a matter of time before Nike SB linked up with San Francisco transplant for a special edition GT Blazer. Bringing Grant Taylor to Portland’s original DIY was a no-brainer.
The Nike SB GT Blazer X Cat’s Paw is available Thursday, August 9 only in local skate shops. #supportyourlocalskateshop

“It was a 7-day trip. Skaters were Donovon Piscopo, John Fitzgerald, Caleb Barnett and Diego Todd. Benny Maglinao filmed and Jared Sherbert was there to TM and handle extra angles. We met in Ventura, skated some spots there, made a quick stop in Santa Maria before heading to Santa Cruz. Hit heavy rains in Santa Cruz so we bounced straight to Sac. Skated there for a couple of days and then went to SF. Had a couple good days in SF and on the way back tried to hit Santa Cruz, but pretty much got rained out there again. Skated Derby in the drizzle for a little bit then headed home.” – Ben Colen
SPoT, Westside Skateshop and Nike SB teamed up this year for Go Skateboarding Day, and skills paid off (literally) with $2,000 in cash for tricks being given away. As a bonus, joined by Blake Carpenter, who got everyone hyped up from the Bro Bowl to Skatepark of Tampa. Check out the recap.
