Check out the Springfield, Ore. stop of Etnies’ Zorchwest Tour from Thursday, June 17.

The Etnies team was in town last Thursday and stopped by the Springfield skatepark for a short afternoon demo.   I think everybody was super stoked to see the team doing their thing, especially the 13- to 13-and-a-half-year-old girls.   God, they were everywhere.   I guess that’s what happens when MTV sensation Ryan Sheckler shows up in your town.

But all kidding aside, Sheckler handled every autograph-seeker like a true pro would and was down to sign everything put in front of him.   I liked that about him cause you got to see a side of him not edited by the folks at MTV or the wizards behind all the etnies media.   Nope, this was just some 20-year-old skateboarder having a good time.

If you couldn’t make the demo, don’t worry cause Tactics had a couple peeps milling around outside the park snapping flicks for your viewing pleasure, which we’ve included below.   If you have any other photos, send them to info@tactics.com and if we like ‘em, we’ll get ‘em posted!
