Elissa Steamer just ended a month-long road trip with her board sponsor, Bootleg Skateboards. The tour, which started on May 26 and ended on June 26, blew through the East Coast with demos, autograph signings and of course some street skating. Elissa then took a short trip to New York City to skate and hang out before heading back home to San Francisco, where she will be for most of the summer.
Lauren Perkins, now out of school for the summer, has been enjoying her free time by skating nearly everyday. On Wednesday, July 14, she will head out to the World Cup of Skateboarding World Championships, which will take place in Dortmund, Germany, from July 15 to 18. After placing third at Slam City Jam in Vancouver, British Columbia, earlier in the year, Lauren is ready to try to nab first place in the Girl's contest.
