2012 Three Amigos Tour: Part Three
APRIL 24, 2012
After smashing a rental van before we even got out of the Atlanta airport parking lot, all the Amigos knew the ATL was going to be a good time. Here's a quick interview with Neen:
All right Neen, so was there any specific inspiration for your Amigo colorway?
Well, obviously I like green, I like yellow, and the Shake Junt video just came out so I wanted to pay homage to the homies with something that represented the green and gold colors of the Junt. Green for the money, gold for the honeys! Pretty much I just wanted to match my signature Shake Junt shirt to my shoes.
What do you like about the Amigo?
It’s more of a thinner shoe. It’s really good. I like the board feel and control. Definitely good for flip tricks and been loving ‘em for ledge sessions.
What do you think has been one of the highlights of the tour so far?
Just being with all the homies, everyone kills it, the whole team is sick. No stress on this tour, just good times with fun demos and really fun street skating.
Have you seen the Three Amigos Movie?
No, but I need to because Chevy Chase is sick.
What’s your favorite Mexican dish?
Actually I had some tacos yesterday, but they were Kangaroo tacos. Shit was bomb. They tasted like a sweet, tender steak. I don’t know if I’m really down for people killing kangaroos and eating ‘em, but I just had to try it.
Anything you’re looking forward to on the rest of the trip?
The next two demos should be good, the parks look sick. Other than that, this beach in front of the hotel—I’m about to jump in and rest my battered body.
We were ambushed by a wild mob of screaming Neen fans when we arrived at Ambush Skate Shop.
The crowd not only inspired Neen to take over as DJ, but out of nowhere he began doing karaoke to Juicy J and Skrillex in his deep, death metal voice. We think he's created a new musical genre: “death step.”
The crowd went nuts to Neen's death-step version of Juicy J's “A Zip And A Double Cup.”
Boo bought some dice. Lots of money changing hands.
Keelan took everyone's money this time.
And here we are once again: the infamous ATL Five Block.

We hit some other spots as well. Boo has noseblunt slides on lock.
Everyone was hyped to get to Da Playground and start filming a SUPRA part.

Then Pat Rumney started to warm up: backside 180 nosegrind.
"I kind of want to try a half-cab bluntslide cab out," Pat said. It seems that by "try" Pat actually meant "do." Thanks to everyone in ATL for showing us a good time. We're now off to Florida.
