This summer, Emerica Footwear went across the pond and spent 10 days traveling around the U.K. with one goal in mind, rip every spot that comes our way and put on one hell of a show at every event. Coming back with 8 minutes of ripping footage from Leo Romero, Kevin “Spanky” Long, Collin Provost, Kevin Baekkel, and Matisse Banc we’d say that goal was accomplished.
Starting in London, England the crew hit the streets immediately followed by a skate jam at the infamous Hackney Bumps before heading north a few days later to skate Manchester’s finest gems. In between spots, the team couldn’t resist popping by local shops, Black Sheep Store & Note Shop.
Next on the itinerary was stopping off in Birmingham after a quick visit to the local shop, Ideal and after stacking clips at a few of the must see spots, the team was back in the van hightailing it to Leeds as the final stop of the tour to hit a few spots while dodging the rain and then put on a heavy skate jam at Hyde Skatepark followed by everybody heading down the street to the pop up Welcome Skate Store for food and drinks to celebrate the release of the Welcome x Spanky tee while Leo Romero rocked out alongside locals Serious Sam and Frosty for all to enjoy.
Thank you all to all the skate shops and skaters for all of the support. Sit back and enjoy the show. Watch “Showtime” now playing on Free Skate Mag.
