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 and if we like ’em, we’ll get ’em posted!
