Greetings site lurkers. As you can tell by the title, we’ve ditched our desks for greener pastures – an East Coast tour with Adidas!
In other words, we won’t be cranking out our typical site content this week. Instead, we’ll be hopping in the van with pros like Daewon Song, Nora Vasconcellos, Dennis Busenitz, and more through the Northeast. If you feel like following along, we’ll be posting daily updates on the Jenkem Instagram.
From the 26th of August to the 1st of September, we’ll be hitting a few different cities and covering all the debauchery going down. If you’re keen, check out the dates below and come say what’s up if you see us out and about.
DATES & STOPS
August 26th (3 – 6pm): Ithaca, NY at Ithaca Skatepark
August 28th (5 – 8pm): Albany, NY at Blue Banks Skatepark
August 30th (4 – 7pm): Providence, RI at Trinity Skatepark
September 1st (4 – 7pm): Boston, MA at Reggie Wong Memorial Park

The man loves to read Nietzche, skates in some expensive vintage gear, and paints in his own neoclassical-meets-abstract-expressionist style.
THE FRONT BLUNT HAT IS BACK… AGAIN
We know we sound like the boy who cried wolf but this might, just might, be the last chance to get your hands on one.
SKATERS RECOMMEND THEIR FAVORITE SKATE PANTS
We hit up some pro skaters and Jenkem contributors known for their 'fits to offer recommendations.
A MINDFUL APPROACH TO WATCHING SKATE VIDEOS
If you love a video, watch it over and over, become obsessed, notice everything, and move on only when you feel it’s the right time.
