2012 Three Amigos Tour: Part Two
APRIL 20, 2012
The amigos woke up in Dallas to rain and lightning storms, but after a couple hours delay they made it to the Austin demo. The slight delay gave us some time to ask Keelan Dadd a few questions about his new Amigo colorway.
Okay Keelan, so was there any inspiration for your Amigo colorway?
Well it's pretty simple. Obviously, being from Los Angeles, if I ever got a shoe I always thought I'd make one that was purple. I've always liked purple, and since it's a good DGK color too, I thought it would work perfect.
Yeah, you even matched the colors of your Amigo shoe with your DGK gear in your SUPRA Amigo ad.
Yeah, I tried to swag up everything.
So since this is your second Three Amigos tour, do you have any advice for the other guys on how to do it up?
Well Pat, Nick, and Neen already been killin' it on this tour. So they just need to keep doing the tricks they've been doing. Stay on your board and keep your head straight—should be a good ride after that.
Is there a certain city or a certain spot you're really looking forward to on this tour?
Atlanta is tight. They got all the good strip clubs there and The Playground is there. I'm hyped to skate The Playground since I haven't skated there in a while. Oh, but I do have a spot and trick in ATL that I want to get. I don't want to call it out, because I learned not to call shit out anymore. I will say that it's not the torture blocks, it's a rail. But yeah we'll see.
Se habla español?
Ha! Poquito? Nah, hablo inglés. No español.
So what's your favorite Mexican dish?
Oh I love Mexican. But we're in Austin, so we've been eating at all the famous BBQ spots. Brisket and ribs are really good. But if I had a choice, I'd just get some tacos—carne asada, sour scream, cheese, no onions, then I'm good.
Like a true Three Amigo Tour veteran, Spencer Hamilton started the Austin demo off with a first-try frontside flip.
Pat Rumney followed with a solid backside over-crooks which he seems to nail at every park.
Boo Johnson's been stepping up his noseblunt slides.
The crowd pleaser: Neen and his heelflips.
Pat's got tranny skills too: nose pick.
Pat front blunts the rail on his way back from the bowl.
As if this rail hadn't been punished enough, Neen wrapped it up with a solid back tail.
Keelan always comes through with these tech manual tricks: manual, nose manual, to nollie flip out. The city of Atlanta is the next destination. Stay tuned.
